How Can I Be More Honest with My Spouse?

How honest can you be with your spouse? Is your marriage vulnerable, safe, and robust enough to communicate honestly?

How much have things changed since dating, when communication was not as cumbersome, constricted, or convoluted? Perhaps speaking freely in your marriage has become more challenging as the years go by, and if that is the case, I trust what I have to say will be the beginning of a new day.
