Is Lying to Your Spouse Ever OK?

Posted: Updated:

What is trust, and how important is it in a marriage? What planet are we on, and do we breathe air? To me these all seem like questions one never needs to ask because the answers are obvious, but maybe I'm naïve. In a perfect world, spouses would never lie to one another, but it happens. Of course, when I think about it happening, it's about taking out the garbage, or what time the kids went to bed while you were out. When we watched this week's anonymous statement on my new show Coffee Shop Confessions, I was shocked at the woman's level of manipulation. How do you lie to your partner about purposely getting pregnant? Take a look at this week's episode and let me know what you think.

Has anyone you know ever lied about birth control? What level of deception, if any, is OK in a relationship? Do you think the marriage will survive when he finds out? I just can't help thinking how it will affect the children; to me there's no way this situation can end well.
