Relationships are built on trust, and one of the fastest ways anyone can violate trust is by lying. When one person in a relationship is caught lying, the other person ends up questioning everything the liar ever told them. Was there just one lie, or was the lie the person was caught in simply the time that they were unlucky? The liar, of course, could claim until they were blue in the face that they only lied once, but the other person would not believe them. Instead, they end up going over every interaction in their head and picking them all apart. Where did the liar act differently? When did they seem reluctant to talk about something? It is enough to tangle anyone up in their own head.
Lying can destroy a relationship, but so can forever suspecting your partner of lying. Analyzing every word they say and watching their every gesture for some hint of dishonesty is no way to act in a relationship. That does not mean, however, that you should not be able to recognize the signs of someone lying to you. It is in many ways better to be prepared than to be blindsided by a pile of lies. Here are six signs your spouse is lying to you.
