How Often Do You Lie to Your Significant Other?

Do you always tell your significant other the truth?

If you said yes, chances are you’re lying.

New research has revealed that couples lie to each other an average of three times a week.

A total of 57 people took part in the study. It was one person per couple, all between the ages of 18-27, although it’s unclear if they were dating or married or both.

And while it sounds like begin dishonest can lead to disaster, the study’s lead researcher, Sean Horan, said that fibbing isn’t actually such a bad thing:

Although it’s very common, the motives behind it aren’t bad. The most dominant motives were to avoid conflict, negative feelings, and hurting your partner.”

Horan also said the small lies are okay because “We don’t always want to know the truth all the time.” However, if you’re lying about something major, that’s when the real problems can begin.
