Nobody ever want to admit that they’re wrong. Not in any marriage, not in a family, particularly not in front of the law. Now with everybody thinks they’re telling the truth, how are you suppose to know when they lied? Can you trust them after they swear to you that they didn’t make any mistake? And do you trust them after he or she swear by Quran? Or do you have to trust them because they’re your spouse, or your parents?

My Rating: 8/10
