When golfer Phil Mickelson embraced his wife after the Masters, how many of us thought, “Has he cheated on her?”
You certainly hope not. She’s recovering from cancer. Surely a man wouldn’t cheat on a cancer-stricken wife. See: John Edwards or Newt Gingrich.
Former New York Giants star Tiki Barber’s wife is eight months pregnant and he leaves her for an intern. What kind of man dumps his pregnant woman for a new babe? See: Tom Brady.
Jesse James is married to a beautiful Oscar winning actress. No way would he betray her with some common skank. See: Eric Benet, ex-husband of Academy Award winner Halle Berry.
Every time a prominent man gets caught in an extra marital affair, wives everywhere must think “Could my husband be cheating?”
The answer is yes. Statistics tells us 70% of all married men cheat. As women we know this going into marriage. So why, even with odds stacked against them, do so many women think they have a "30 percenter".
