Transparency is very important between partners. If you cannot feel safe about being open with your partner about who and what you are, or your friends, showing them who and what you are all about, or family members the same, then your not really able to fully be yourself.
We should be able to be proud of who we are or at the very least accepting of who we are, and show that person to the world or at the very least to those we care about. Being transparent with others, means completely showing and revealing your flaws and your good qualities to another human being which makes you vulnerable so your partner had better be able to do the same.
When I have been in relationships in the past where my partner was not transparent, even when I asked questions that would reveal who they were as individuals, both good and bad, I have found myself not trusting them fully. I have always figured if they can’t be open with me, then how is it possible for them to be open with themselves? I also ask myself what are they hiding?
Sometimes, it is hard for someone to be transparent, when someone has been raised not to be. Some parents have raised their children not to share with others who they are until they have built trust with another but often, if you will show transparency with your partner, they will feel more comfortable sharing who they are with another person who is open.
