His favorite show is Firefly, your favorite show is Jane the Virgin. But he loooooves his show and you just don't have it in your heart to tell him that it's just not your thing. It's cool, he never has to know that you fibbed on this one a little bit.

It's great to have a sense of humor, and we're sure your hubby makes you laugh... But be honest, that's not really ALL of the time, is it? It's okay to pretend like everything that comes out of his mouth is comic gold, though.

You've been scrolling through Netflix for what seems to be at least an hour trying to find something neither of you has seen... At this point, it might just be time to call it quits and just pretend like the next movie he suggests isn't one you've been quoting since you were 12.

One of the biggest little white lies we may tell is when it's okay (and not okay) for him to skip what seems like a major event in our lives. Best friend's birthday? Okay, he's off the hook... For now, anyway.

You read the text, and then immediately got caught up at work and forgot to reply. You hear from him again hours later, wondering what's up or why you haven't responded... Just pretend that it's all a big huge mistake. Trust us, it's easier on his ego.
