Integrity matters in relationships.
Integrity is defined as the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness, formidable, unshaken and in the state of being whole and undivided.
A building will collapse without structural integrity. The same way a bridge will cause cars to plunge into the water, ships that sink and planes falling down from the sky.
Who would want to ride on an airplane or ship that lacks integrity? Of course, you won’t. By default, you would choose to ride a plane that is built by individuals who are honest and have excellent values.
If you don’t want to trust your safety to someone with low integrity, why would you place your personal life in the hands of someone who is morally lacking? You should value your personal happiness in the same way you value your health and safety. If you are not doing this, then you have to, now.
If you are in a relationship, you must avoid marriage to someone who lacks personal integrity. If somebody woos you, and you feel that you are about to return the same feelings to the other, you have to ensure that the person is completely honest with you. The person must reveal everything about himself before you enter into that relationship.
Honesty is never an option. It should be mandatory in your checklist.
Think about this. On your wedding, your husband says, “Oh by the way honey, I can’t promise nor commit to be honest with you 100% of the time.”
How would you feel? Why would you feel it?
If there is still a speck of self-respect in you, you will understand that there’s no way a marriage to this person will work.
Your marriage will fail. You will experience a lot of heartaches.
