If we were living apart for a couple of months before filing I-751, should we reveal this to USCIS?

Marital difficulties or living apart are not a bar to a green card, and should not be hidden.
My husband came to the U.S. on a fiancé visa, after which we got married and applied for his green card. Now he’s in the “conditional residence” period. We went through a rough patch in our marriage for a couple of months, during which I stayed with my parents. (They live in another city, a two hours’ drive away.) Things got better with the marriage after some counseling, but now I’m staying with my parents again, because my father is ill and my mother can’t manage the house alone. How long I might have to stay with my parents depends on things beyond my control. Would it be easiest to just not reveal these facts on my husband’s I-751 application to remove the conditions on residence? I’m afraid it will think our marriage is failing. (The I-751 is due in a month.) Should I fill in my parents’ address or my husband and my address on the form?
