Cheater, Cheater, pumpkin eater,
Had a wife but couldn’t keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well
My husband and I were talking last night and something he said has still got me feeling ill at ease, for lack of a better word. While conversing with one of his coworkers, the subject of cheating on your wife came up. While my husband began to say he could never imagine cheating on me his coworker interrupted him saying that every man cheats on his wife. Its a common practice and then they act like it never happened, never admitting to the deed. Are you serious? I mean is this a true fact? Does this happen? How often does it happen? Is my husband going to cheat on me? Has he already? What the hell am I missing here?
So while I’m sitting at the kitchen table aghast and wordless, said husband proceeds to tell me that most of the men at his job agreed with said coworker. WHAT THE FUCK?
Am I crazy for thinking that is insane?
Gentlemen, husbands please tell me is this true?
What have i signed up for?
And of course I need to know the facts on marriage infidelity….

I could go on and on but let me stop.
