Seriously. WHY do men lie?????? Why??????????

My hubbie claimed he had a "dinner" to attend yesterday when in fact it was a happy hour.

He FLAT out lied and he knows it. He's an intelligent person so I know he didn't confuse the two.

I'm not going to confront him, as I am taking mother's advice, "to pick my battles". But I thought I would provoke some people here to figure out this childish behavior.

why don't you think confronting him is not a good idea? when he flat out lied to you? because you'd rather argue about...what? what is more important than trust in a marriage? this is a battle i strongly urge you to pick...

does he have a reason to lie? like, have you had arguments in the past about after-work alcohol? do you not approve of an occasional happy hour? not saying that would be a good excuse-but men often want to avoid arguments and if this was the case, i could see him lying about it. if this is not your situation-then i would probably be suspicious of something else going on.

Is it possible he could have been speaking in "shorthand"? If I did not want to give a long explanation, I might have said I had an appointment after work, or a dinner engagement. Did he meet someone for business purposes? or for pleasure?

Do you not approve of him going to happy hour, drinking, etc.? The reason I ask is because maybe he likes to drink and knew you would get upset if he told you the truth and was trying to avoid the argument.

If you don't have a problem with it, why not just ask him why he's trying to hide it from you when he could easily just tell you the truth?

He probably lies to you for a very good reason. Lying is a choice, and my guess is that he is not a dumb guy. He wanted to go to the bar, thought you'd give him a hard time about it. My wife fortunately is very good about this kind of thing- she knows I work hard, and that the bar is some nice me time. The same way I go out of my way to give her some Oprah time or In Touch Weekly time.

I'm pretty lucky- I don't need to lie.
