Transparency is burgeoning all around us, but relationships seem to be stuck in a last-century time warp, untouched by the changing world and the public exposure of most everything that used to be easy to hide.

The lies of politicians, atrocities by despots who try to deny their actions, ethical transgressions by corporations and their executives—all become quickly exposed to the world.
Good relationships are based on transparency. If you like this story, don’t forget to share it with your friends.
