Do you always back up your dh

Do you always back up your dh when it comes to the kids? Even if you don't agree with him? If he's wrong and the kids are right do you still defend your dh just to keep that unified front? 

Dh and the kids (teens) are having a disagreement. So far I've stayed out of it since the kids are right and I don't want to blatantly go against dh. Dh asked why I don't have anything to say so I told him that I believe the kids are right in this one. He says that I should keep that to myself but still defend his stance and stay unified.

I don't have teens, but I'm not sure if I could do that.

Absolutely. We are a team. If I don't agree with him I'll talk to him later about it, but never in front of the kids. We are usually always on the same page.

No, if he's wrong I tell him. Maybe not in front of the kids but I do let him know that  I don't agree.

You would look your kids in the face and tell them they're wrong and their father is right even though that's not what you actually believe?

How would you act in front of the kids? Would you stay out of it or defend them?

I would only back him up if he's in the right, other than that no. I always try and be respectful and let him know outside our son, where I think he went wrong.
