When is it OK to lie?
DDs apartment was burglarized yesterday while she was at work. Thank heaven she was not home and did not come home when the intruder/intruders were there.
Among the missing items is her great-grandmothers wedding ring. My dd was named after her, so my MIL gave her this ring on Christmas day for her 25th birthday.
My MIL is 83, has lost several good friends this past year, and has had a hard year. Honestly, this would really make her distraught to know that her beloved mother's wedding ring is now in the hands of some thief (who also took a rosary that was a family heirloom).
DH wants to tell his mother the truth. I think she would be better off not knowing. DD lives in another city, so it's not like mom would ever really know.
Am I wrong in wanting to keep this from her?
