Some questions are asked with the answered already being known. Just waiting to see the response. So that’s why it’s best to be honest or you may get caught in a lie. Once trust is loss it hard to move pass that. How can you believe anything is real when you catch a liar. Also I believe if you caught in a lie within 24 hrs you should confess to avoid the pain and loss that this has caused. No one is perfect and that’s understandable that’s why when you fall you should address the issue right away.
