We have been tough from the very young age that lying is bad and it actually is. But. As you may have already guessed if there is a ‘but’ there are exceptions. That is why today we decided to talk about something as controversial as lying to your partner. Do not think that we do encourage it in any way – on the contrary, we think that it is unacceptable unless you have a very good reason for that.
The thing is that life is not that simple as just black and white, there are many more shades to it and you need to be prepared for anything that your life has in store for you. That is why we suggest to your attention a list of six examples when a good lie is acceptable.
#1 Abusive relationship
Dealing with an abuser is never easy. What is more, it is always difficult to gather up all your strength and leave. But when you are ready to lie – do not shoot it straight away, make way for your retreat and if that involves some lies – do that. Consider it is lying for your own good, which it is in fact.
#2 Have you loved anyone more?
That is the tricky question that absolutely deserves no truth. The thing is despite the curiosity even if you loved someone more in the past – let it stay in the past, otherwise telling the truth will take you a step closer to the destruction of your relationship.
When you are preparing a surprise, it happens so that the person you want to surprise with seems to be able to ‘smell’ it. That is why a little lie not to ruin the surprise is ok.

It happens so that relationships end even though your partner wasn’t that bad. That is why there is no use to place all the dirt on your partner by telling him all that you actually think, who knows maybe he is not that much to blame after all?
Sometimes your partner may look not his best but a little white lie will surely raise his mood and will make both of you a little happier.
#6 Not your secret
Very often we have secrets to keep, and that is another situation that you need to lie sometimes not to spill out the truth that doesn’t belong to you.
