This is a very difficult topic for me, because I have now realized that I have to do that. I wish that I did not, but I do.
Before I go on any further, let me say that I used to lie. That was in my cheating days, and I really regret the cheating. It destroyed my marriage, and I was married to one who still remains one of the most wonderful people in the world.
I lied to spare her feelings a bit, but honestly, to keep my ass from being trouble for the most part. That is how liars work. They lie to avoid the consequences of their actual actions. But I really did, at least for some part, to spare her feelings.
