    I would say the best way to start is by starting to tell the truth, even if it hurts. Trust is a deep and complicated bound. Once you break it you’ll have to earn its return. Nevertheless, today is most certainly the best day for you to start! In this things always choose today in spite of tomorrow!

    that's simple, try being honest with yourself and ask yourself would you appreciate it if someone had lied to you about the very same thing. Be sincere when you inform your husband of the true nature of your finances and let him know that this is where you both stand. He can either take it or lump it.

    One of the reason finances are such a damaging issue amongst married couples is that it follows an assumption of guilt and responsibility.  Being honest is a start, but in order to gain his trust - and more importantly, reaffirm your trust in him - you need to share the financial tasks.  If only one person in the household is managing funds, there is always going to be an underlying sense of distrust.  keep the books open.  Removing the blinders prevents the opportunity to be dishonest, and allows him to see where problems exist, and help to fix them.

    Just make sure you say the truth to the maximum possible extent.
