Don’t you just hate it when someone tries to spare your feelings by telling you what they think you want to hear. I have a relative that did that once. He bought a house for him and his "friend" to live in then told his wife he didn’t own the house. In the end, when they divorced, the wife had to sign the paper work to sell the house that he didn’t own. She knew all along he purchased the house. Wouldn't it have been better for him to be upfront or to try and hide the truth?
