HALF of all women would lie to their husbands or partners to keep their relationship going if they became pregnant by another man, a survey said today. Figures showed one woman in two would not tell her man that the baby she was carrying was not his – if she wanted to stay with him. They also said four out of ten (42%) would lie about contraception in order to get pregnant, in spite of the wishes of their partner.
The new survey of women’s attitudes to truth, relationships, and behaviour, said the overwhelming majority (96%) admit to lying. Almost half (45%) of the 5,000 questioned told the researchers for That’s Life! magazine they tell “little white lies” most days.
The favourite fib told by women was “Of course you don’t look fat” with “These shoes were only ’10” in second place. One bizarre finding was that a third of women (33%) said they would stay with their husband if they found out he was a “secret transvestite”, but only half that number (17%) would put up with him if he refused to wash.
