Sunday Confessional: My Parents Don't Know We're Living Together


Dear Sugar,

I've been dating my boyfriend for over a year and we've been living together for just over three months. The thing is, my parents are super conservative and would just die if they found out we were living together before marriage. So I've been lying to my parents, and when we see them, I make him lie too but he hates it. Since my parents are such do-gooders, they'd be really angry if they found out we were lying to them all this time, but they'd be even more angry if they knew we were "living in sin."

I lie to them so that we are able to live the way we please and I don't feel guilty because what they don't know won't hurt them, but is it wrong for me to make him lie as well, or is it forgivable since I'm doing what's right for us?
