Always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship.[TOEFL]

I disagree with the opinion that says always telling the truth in a relationship is important.
For me the statement is very hypothetical and robust.

In a relationship,the utmost priority is to be happy with someone you love and care for that person.
Caring and bonding often involves and requires harmless lies at several occasions.For example,when
there is a bad news like demise of someone closer to a person, the partner may hide telling directly
to the face this bitter news initially and just say that there is just an emergency and we need to go
to the hospital.After sometime,as the person slowly absorbs the situation,the actual fact can be told.
Lies can help in situations that affect the confidence of a person.For example,even if your partner hasnt
cooked up a new dish up to the mark,instead of telling what you actually feel,you can simply hide that and
just appreciate the efforts he/she put forth in it.

On a second thought,the base of a relationship is adjustment and loving the person as he/she is.
Always telling the truth about your likings or dislikings towards your partner lead to unnecessary fights and grudges.
For example,suppose the girl is worried about how a dress looks due to the weight she has put on recently.So if her
partner directly calls her fat which she is actually looking,it will obviously wont lead to anything better.
So instead he may soothe things out by just complementing the way she is looking and suggest to lose a few pounds.

Thus,even though truth plays an important part in your relationship,the risky fellow should be kept hidden sometimes.
Also,always lying will ultimately have a harsh impact on your relationship,a few belign lies here and there help to
cherish the relationship on a longer terms.Therefore,always telling the truth is not at all suggested.

Sushant, the first thing you have to do when writing any form of academic essay for a foreign language test, be it IELTS or TOEFL, is that you are required to prove your English comprehension skills in the first paragraph. This is done through the proper paraphrasing of the prompt that you are being asked to discuss. By properly explaining the prompt requirement, with an emphasis on the question and your opinion in the paragraph, the examiner will be able to determine if you have the ability to understand simple English statements and respond to the questions accordingly. Since you did not do anything of the sort in the opening paragraph, you should not expect to get a passing grade in terms of accomplishing the task or task accuracy.

The rest of your essay grade will depend largely on how well you represented the prompt and your decision as to how to discuss it. The terms, "hypothetical" and "robust" are not the correct terms to use when describing your opinion of the topic. That mistake alone will cost you points in terms of the Lexical Resource scoring considerations of your essay.

Pay particular attention to the words that you use. Your grammatical accuracy score will come from properly using words in the context or meaning that you wish to have a sentence deliver. Using big words will not matter in this essay if you are not using the term properly. Big words used with the wrong meaning will adversely affect your score.

Recently I gave my TOEFL exam and scored 27 in writing,so I would also like to suggest you to increase the length of your essay (450-500 words should be OK) and add some personal examples too.

Hope this helps.

first of all, I think your typesetting is quite odd. It will be better if you can do some adjustment.
Secondly, in the introduction, I think it can be more extended.
In order to let the reader understand the essay, you can explain the title first.

hope it helps!
