    Should you always be truthful?

    If your wife asks you if it looks like she has been putting on weight how should you respond?

    Is total honesty always the best policy?

    It all matters if she can handle it or not. MrsBrianHos and I have been married a long time, she can handle it. If she asks the question, I am gonna tell her the truth.

    So what you're saying is MrsBrianHos is getting a little thick around the middle?

    Re: Should you always be truthful?

    I'm always truthful with my wife when she asks those type of questions. We have been married 7 years and she hasn't kicked me in the nutz yet.

    Sometimes honesty is not the best policy. I think we have a pretty good bball team for instance.

    Always tell the truth, then you never have to remember what you've said.

    Ask her what the scale says. The scale can handle the dirty work here.

    Re: Should you always be truthful?

    Respond with a question: "Why would you ask that?" or "Are you kidding?"

    Then, she has to answer for herself and YOU are in the clear.
