I'm not in the stars, because I am ours.
If I'm active in line, you may not be fine.
If you have me today, you have something to say.
If you give me to your lover, she may find another.

What am I?

Include your reasoning for each line in your answer.

You are a:

Fault

I'm not in the stars, because I am ours.

Fault is not in the stars because the Fault is ours

If I'm active in line, you may not be fine.

If a Fault is active in a line like the San Andrea then we are not fine

If you have me today, you have something to say.

If you have a Fault today then you need to say that you are SORRY

If you give me to your lover, she may find another.

If you give your lover a Fault than she will find another Fault in you...

    $\begingroup$ @MITU RAJ After 40 years of marriage I can tell you that if you give your lover a reason to think that you have a fault she will be inclined to find other faults in you...Your experience may be that she would just go find another guy... $\endgroup$ – Dr t Nov 29 '17 at 19:15

    $\begingroup$ @Drt Actually, the hint alluded to "faulting" your lover, as in, finding a fault in or blaming your spouse. Also, the "finding another" part was intentionally ambiguous. $\endgroup$ – mbomb007 Nov 29 '17 at 20:26

    $\begingroup$ Might be worth noting that the first line is alluding to a famous bit of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. ("The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves".) $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Nov 29 '17 at 22:19
