. . .I tell my wife I'm happy when the truth is that I'm not always. There are moments of happiness but most of the time I'm thinking of how unhappy I am over our marriage or how angry I am over some recent squabble. I choose not to tell her the truth because I want to keep the peace, and more importantly I do it for the children. Does that make me dishonest? I suppose it does but sometimes you have to tell them what they want to hear to get what you want.
