Can You Handle the Truth?
Okay, paraphrasing a movie quote may be a bit cheesy but evidence shows most of us lie in some way shape or form to our partners, and they lie to us, this is an appropriate question. Now your first response may be, “I don’t lie.” And you may not look your partner in the eye and flat out lie. But what about not sharing the entire truth? Or even little white lies meant to spare their feelings? Even those types of lies erode the foundation of trust your relationship is built on.
Dr. Marisa Cohen, Associate Professor of Psychology, relationship researcher and the author of From First Kiss to Forever, tackles this common but harmful behavior and offers an alternative.
