Be Thankful for a Faithful Husband

If your husband is faithful, you have much to be thankful for. Faithful husbands are in short supply.

A Rude Awakening

Others are dumbfounded to discover from empty bank accounts that family funds were used to finance an extramarital affair. Still others are astonished to learn that they've contracted a sexually transmitted disease.

Why the Wife is the Last to Know

If a wife has no reason to suspect her husband it's easy to miss or misinterpret the warning signs. Especially if she's unfamiliar with the 21 categories of telltale signs.
