After being married for nearly 10 years, my wife and I are able to pretty well tell when we are not being honest with each other. I'm not talking about big lies, we don't do those. I am talking about the little lies.

When I got home last night I could tell that she was down about something. I asked her what was wrong and she tried to play it off as everything was fine. I wasn't buying it.

It turned out that she had a rough day with the kids and it was bothering her. I don't know why she didn't want to tell me that to begin with but it's now ok. I had a long talk with the boys and they know that today will be a better day.

So when was the last time you lied? According to Dr. Phil McGraw, by the time we are 60 years old, men will have told more than 100,000 lies and women will have uttered some 50,000 untruths.

The top four lies women tell, according to Dr. Phil:

  1. I'm fine. There's nothing wrong.
  2. Oh, this isn't new! I've had this old thing forever.
  3. Oh, this was cheap! I got it on sale.
  4. I've got a headache.

The top four lies men tell, according to Dr. Phil:

  1. I'm fine. There's nothing wrong.
  2. This is my last drink.
  3. No, that doesn't make you look fat.
  4. Hey, I'm on the way! (But he's not even almost on the way.)
