In any relationship we tend to lie. It might be in the form of “Timely truth” as in, wait till you think the time is right to speak the truth or “Selective truth” as in leaving out a part of the whole truth.
These lies might not look harmful and surely might not be either – in minor cases, but they do tend to lead people to misunderstanding. From the past experience, I surely can say that does make it difficult for the trust to persist once the truth comes to light; irrespective of it being small or big. We do tend to question ourselves at least on weather the truth was spoken by the person or not.
It is these small incidences that MIGHT lead to a big crack to fill in. Is it really worth it? shouldn’t there be enough transparency in a relationship that one shouldn’t feel the need to hold back? and if you ARE holding back, does that not mean that the relationship is not as strong as it should be?
These are just few questions that pop up in my head when I see couples selectively telling the facts or in my own case after having faced similar situation more than once, It did effect my thought process and raised many doubts in my head about weather it was the whole fact that was shared or was there a part left for later?
