What are the possible advantages of not always being completely candid and truthful?
Are there some reasons for lying, some of which may be more acceptable than others?
Is it possible that our close relationships could not work without some degree of deception?

Could any relationship withstand "the truth, and nothing, but the truth?"

To me:: Whether we like it or not, it appears that our relationships are held together,
not only by telling the truth, but by also telling an occasional lie.

Lying is a bug that is very difficult to remove once it gets into a ralationship ,rather it keeps multiplying as one tends to cover an old lie with a new one .

The funniest thing is: in some relationships, people lie just to get what they want
and by so doing, when they'r being caught, they quickly forget that they told a lie. How funny

Soph, "Lies are like a betrayal to men. A man may forgive the first lie you tell him, but he will not forget. Lying repeatedly to him will make him feel as though you cannot be trusted."
Since human beings are not perfect and are bound to lie, a guiding principle should be to weigh the consequences of discovery and expectant result of lying. If the consequences outweigh the expectant results, then avoid lies!
Biblically, it is condemned in very strong terms YOUR YES SHOULD BE YES AND YOU NO SHOULD BE NO!

There is a difference telling a lie abaut something and not saying that thing at all .

that is what causes problems in most remlationships because if u wait until ur marital vows are said before removing lies from ur relationships , how many of the old ones will u be able to remove and how sure are u that the lies will not repeat themselves even in marriage ?
