Everybody lies. Friends lie to friends. Children lie to their parents. And, inevitably, husbands and wives lie to each other.
While partners lie to keep their marriage together, in reality they’re helping to destroy it. In Tell Me No Lies, Ellyn Bader, Ph.D. and Peter Pearson, Ph.D. lead us through the four stages of marriage: 1) The Honeymoon, 2) Emerging Differences, 3) Freedom to Explore, 4) Together as Two.
This book offers a riveting account of the classic lies we tell during these stages. It is insightful and practical for couples who would like to improve their relationships, and for the therapists who help them.
You’ll learn the difference between constructive lies and the ones that can destroy your relationship. You will discover the secret to sorting through individual differences to reach a state of mutual appreciation and cooperation.

“Bader and Pearson boldly explore little charted territory in Tell Me No Lies. With brilliance, clarity and precision, they expose and explore the subtle, dark side of marriage: the everyday deceptions that erode intimacy. But they effectively help couples out of that darkness by showing them how facing truth builds a marriage in which intimacy is based on trust.”
