No self-respecting husband acts like this

True story from a highly reliable source:

1) guy marries girl whose character is highly suspect

2) woman proceeds to whore around; husband puts her out [the only time she considers going back to her husband is when she can’t find her way into another man’s bed]

3) after a time the husband decides to win his wife back; he proceeds to sweet talk her & turns on the romance

4) husband marries the woman again [does he expect a different outcome?] but he has to buy her first

5) husband & wife are reunited under new stipulations: she won’t sleep around but neither will he sleep with her. [marriage will consist of protection & provision but appears to lack joy & passion]

No “happily ever after” for this couple–right?
