What reasons do WS give to not answer questions? WW had an EA.

Is it because they think they saving me from pain? Is it because they feel they didn't do anything wrong? Is it because they have something to hide? Is it because they don't want to let go of the "Fake Reality" they had with OP?

The "reasons" WS give for not answering questions don't really matter. The real reason is not wanting to face themselves.

My WH said the hardest thing for him was admitting to himself that he was "that person," who everyone despises. Weak. Liar. Coward.

Over the years I've seen thousands of flimsy "reasons" (excuses). They are all just extentions of the original lie.

The answer to all your questions is---"YES".

None of those, however, are acceptable. Even if it was done with *good intent*, it is not a healthy choice.

I have heard them all, I didnít want to hurt you is one. To that I say, if you didnít want to hurt me, than why did you have an affair in the first place. To that, the answer can be I never thought you would find out. And that response gets the question, then why did the affair continue after I found out. And then you get that dumb look from the WS.

The dumb look is always a give-a-way they are out of excuses, at least for the time being.

What reason do WS give for not answering questions?

The reason I have gotten more than any other is the I donít know and the I donít remember answers.

And those make me the most ill of all, because only someone suffering from severe dementia could forget so many big things in their life. I can remember forgetting some things like the exact date or what color socks they were wearing that day, but not the answer to major questions.

Because they can't face the monster in the mirror.

I think you are right about the monster in the mirror. The only answer is why do we have to do this every night. Because you shutdown and can't get past one question.

Could be any of the things you mentioned but the one that we never see coming is because you don't know the entire story. Answering your questions leads to more questions and if she knows the story won't add up to what you know already she will NEVER answer your questions. That's the thing about liars. The longer you lie the more stories you have to keep straight in your head. I hope it's not true but don't be surprised if there is more to the story that you dont know.

^^^This!

Oh at first it was to not hurt me, it was to save me more pain, it was to protect the OW, blah, blah, blah.

But the real answer is as stated above. They can't face themselves.

The Constanza Theory. "It's not a lie........if you believe it." Some of them eventually believe all of the lies that they tell you. Then they can switch to the I've already told you everything defense.

Several excuses can be generated I would guess.

But most probably have to do with selfishness and a lack of concern for the betrayed partner.

Brokenbond13 posted 2/27/2014 20:43 PM

I hate hearing "I don't know." and "I was stupid." They are complete fall back excuses to hide away from the true reasons they can not face.

They are afraid of further and more severe consequences because usually what you don't know is worse than what you already do.
They like to pick through and only tell the bare minimum of the things least likely to get them the opposite outcome they hope to get in the end.
