The truth will set you free


In my marriage, this virtue is basically the edifice of the entire relationship. The absolute paragon of transparency and  advocate for trust.

Today I wrote my husband an e-mail about cigarettes and how I just can’t seem to stop craving them. I told him how I didn’t want to quit smoking.It took a lot of courage for me to write him that e-mail especially because he despises the very idea of nicotine.

Cigarettes have caused a few rows in our relationship. And nobody wants to have an angry exchange about anything for that matter. But I love my husband a great deal and I want him to know how I feel. What’s the use in being married if you’re keeping your feelings inside the whole time?

My only hope is that he realises that I just wanted to be honest after all.



  1. I’m sure he will. If you’re not ready, you’re not ready. I think honesty is great Mrs M. You’re married after all.
    When you decide to quit, then you will. Mos.

  2. Ja. I really hope he sees the message for what it is, though. It was rather difficult a topic to broach.

  3. You absolutely did the right thing by being honest. There is just no other way in a marriage. The cig issue is a very touchy one, though, I think…

  4. It is Gnome, but I did what I thought was right. If I never talked about this, I would just have kept it to myself and been frustrated…who would I have been kidding then?

  5. Keeping it in would have been a million times worse. Plus I’m not sure you would have been able to not say anything. As hard as I try, I cannot keep stuff from my husband. That’s how it’s supposed to be. Regardless of fall-out – honesty is the MOST NB THING.

  6. Honesty is the best policy and you definitely have done the correct thing.

    He’ll love you no matter what 😉

  7. I feel better about it. Thank you for reminding me that I’ve done the right thing here.

  8. *Toby sings “You’ve done the right thing” hoping nobody will look at her in a funny way* 🙂

  9. Is that a song?
    *Not looking at Toby funny but trying to get annoying soong by Fergie called Big Girls don’t cry out of her head*

  10. *Toby made the previous one up but suggests: My boy lollipop, you make my heart go giddyup, you set my world on fiyaaar, you are my heart’s desiyaaar, My boy Lolipop…*

  11. *Splish splash I was taking a bath…on about a Saturday night….Rub dub just a splashin’ in the tub, thinking everything is all right…*

  12. That Fergie song has one of the most stupid lines in song history

    “I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket”

    I MEAN SERIOUSLY?! Could she not think of anything better than that?

  13. I KNOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot STOP THINKING ABOUT THAT! Im gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket…I always think of Linus from Peanuts, I didn’t have blanket issues!
    pooppooppeedoop (TOby!)


  15. i hope you know, I hope you know…

  16. Umbrella…ellla, ellla, ella…

  17. NOOOOOOO don’t do it!!!! NOOO!

    That song was the curse on England. No 1 for 10 weeks and we didn’t have a summer, it rained all the time.


  18. THAT IS HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  19. *thinks what a bastard you are*

    The sunshine has disappeared now and it is all your fault.

  20. Sorry man. You could always think of Kylie’s “I should be so lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky…”
