Why do husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends lie to each other?
It's not pleasant to think about being betrayed by someone you love. No one likes to think that a husband or wife may be lying, especially not in their own relationship.
And it's probably safe to assume that everyone wants a close, romantic relationship that is built on openness, intimacy and trust.
But despite our best intentions, our close relationships do not always work that way. Often, our romantic relationships involve some secrecy and deception.
So, why do people lie to those they love?
There are lots of reasons behind people telling lies. Although each reason might be different from the other, all of them stem from one root; being unable to bear the consequences of telling the truth.
Lack of courage, lack of problem-solving skills & lack of ability to properly handle unexpected events may make escaping a situation a much better option than facing it. If the person values honesty or if he is religiously observant then he may try to escape the situation without lying. If lying is an option then it will definitely be considered the easier way out.
Consequently, lying is the combination of being unable to face the results of honesty and the lack of proper values;the tolerance of lying.
so honestly...wat u all tink?huh?
