I recently got laid off from my job and I haven't told my husband yet (just happened today) I'm pregnant and was actually considering leaving because I was getting stressed out and aching after I got off work and I was tired of being tired and stressed. Should I tell my husband I was laid off or should I just tell him I quit?

Why wouldn't you tell him the truth?  Yes, you were wanting to quit, but instead you got laid off.  I guess I just don't see why you would lie about this to your dh.  To me, I believe that in a relationship, the truth is always the best policy.

Why would you even think about lying?

I would think being laid off is better than quitting. Doesn't that look better on job apps too? I would tell him the truth

Well I didn't want him to be upset because I got let go and he knew I had been considering quiting. I guess it is best just to straight up tell him I got let go now instead of saying I quit and then him finding out later that I was actually let go.

Why do you need a pole to tell the truth? And honeslty what's the big deal? Why did they let you go? Is that why you don't want to tell.him?

Why would you tell him anything other than the truth?

Not understanding why you would even consider lying about this. I mean you were laid off, so you should qualify for unemployment. Why lie?
