Same as the question in the subject line.

What is the lie and what does the spouse think?
he/him
When a Religion is good, I conceive that it will support itself; and when it cannot support itself, and God does not take care to support, so that its Professors are oblig’d to call for the help of the Civil Power, ’tis a Sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one.

I suppose that it's okay, but being okay seems to be, at a minimum, lacking. In my opinion, being 100% transparent with your spouse is one of the requirements for a deeply meaningful, authentic, and priceless marriage.

99% known is to be unknown.

Just my take.

Not enough information.

Probably leaning towards no.

Does lying include withholding information if she ask's you what your number?

Are you talking "phone," or "social security?"

Your spouse should have free access to your number? Right?

I withhold some information on my spending. Like I'll round down. If something is £22 I'll say it's about £20. Or If I'm going to buy a drink, I'll maybe eat a chocolate bar on the way home but not announce that I bought one.

What are we lying about exactly? I need examples before I can vote. Just on the face of it, I don't see a reason to lie to my spouse.

I see it more as creative truth telling.

I've raised it to an art form. Try me. 8-)

That's not lying. It's just using handy math.

That's not lying either. It's just sparing him the details of your dietary intake.
