Okay I Admit It. . .

. . .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.

I'm in the same situation as you. I'm only staying married because of my girls. I find myself having less to pretend to be happy, the more I pretend.

This is me, too! I'm usually okay at faking it, but I dunno, lately I'm having a hard time not being honest. It absolutely doesn't help anyone to be honest. I know that, but I don't know how to train myself to just not say anything.
