Dear Steve and Shirley, I have been with the same man for the last 7 years. I love this man with all my heart and would do anything for him. We have been engaged for 6 years and have not gotten married yet, because of a few issues. There is hesitation on his part, because of his lack of trust in me. It’s my fault. Not too long ago, I lied about an accident I had in my car. Then I ended up telling him the truth about what happened. Because I finally admitted it, he claims that I cannot be trusted. We argue often about him not being able to let this go. I also recently decided to lie to him about a bill being paid, in order to keep the peace. I know that it was wrong, but I thought it was the right thing to do for the sake of arguing. This just made things worse. I ended up paying the bill, but not before he discovered that I lied about it. He has told me that he is not sure if he can trust me because of these lies. He says he wants to work things out and stay together, but I can tell he is holding a grudge. Is there anyone else that believes in telling a lie in order to keep the peace? I think he is overreacting. Am I wrong for thinking that? Should I insist that he just go ahead and leave? Or should I leave? Please help.
