It's funny you should say this. When I was young, I didn't realize that I could do anything else but hope/pray/wish that my man remained faithful. Then, I thought that men held all the cards. That belief caused me a lot of grief over the years!
It's old fashioned thinking that a wife should be grateful that her man isn't out having affairs. Think of it...years ago, this was perhaps not accepted behaviour, but expected?
My great grandfather took a mistress in the early 1920's because his wife as told by her doctor that she could bear no more children. My grandfather was the product of the affair. Everybody knew about it. What was the wife to do?
