WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON WHITE LIES BETWEEN PARTNERS?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

I have been dating someone for six months and I have caught him in a few lies. They’re not big lies but it makes me not trust or respect him. He says they are white lies and that all couples tell each other white lies to keep the peace but I consider them lies just the same. Your opinion?

DEAR WAKING UP:

The strongest relationships are based on truth. It’s possible to tell the truth tactfully and diplomatically while communicating what needs to be said.
