From Academy Award winning director Ron Howard comes a tale of friendship in the January release of The Dilemma.  This particular friendship, a bromance between Ronny (Vince Vaughn, Wedding Crashers) and Nick (Kevin James, Hitched) is stretched to the limit when Ronny catches Nick’s wife, Geneva (Winona Ryder, Black Swan) with another man.  Should Ronny tell his BFF the truth of his wife’s indiscretions, or keep his lips sealed and wait for Geneva to come clean on her own?  Packed with a star-studded cast, The Dilemma promises to bring bros closer than ever before in this year’s winter rom-com.


Should you keep secrets from those you love?

Cupid’s Advice:

It may be easier said than done when it comes to obeying the age-old rule that “honesty is the best policy,” but nine times out of ten, it may be best to forge ahead and be upfront with the one you love:

1. Switch roles: Ask yourself how it would feel if your positions were switched.  If you would want the truth no matter what, then your loved one deserves the same treatment.  It may be hard to get the words out, but you’ll feel better once you do.

2. Avoid piling on the lies: Little white lies can come back to haunt you.  One untruth can turn into another, which can then turn into an even bigger lie.  Instead of trying to continuously cover your tracks, come clean from the beginning.

3. Look at the big picture: If you picture yourself with your partner for a long time, you owe it to him to keep secrets from ruining your relationship.  A little fib isn’t worth destroying your happiness.
