Marriage 501, Lecture 234: The Other Woman

I have to go out of town and will be gone when SH and I have tickets to see "Anne Frank." I suggested he ask Christina, the Nighttime Wife, who was a theater major.

SH: You're a very trusting wife! You're leaving and you're encouraging me to go out with a younger woman!

Me: It's a play about Nazis! And a 14 year old who gets murdered in a concentration camp!

SH: Uplifting.

Me: I'm not worried.

Several months afterward, though, DH was talking about that neighbor family and their latest remodeling project. He said something like, "I think What's-Her-Name used Swanstone." I was reassured that he couldn't even remember Beautiful Blonde Neighbor's first name.
