Honesty is supposed to be the cornerstone of a healthy relationship, and lying, an automatic deal breaker. But should it be? It’s one of the things we teach our kids from the time they’re old enough to talk: always tell the truth. We repeat the story of young George Washington, who used his shiny new hatchet to chop a chunk out of his father’s cherry tree and immediately fessed up when the damage was discovered. “I cannot tell a lie,” the six-year-old supposedly said, and his honesty was rewarded with an embrace from his father,…
