"I agree with the consensus.  Get rid of her. It's more understandable if a couple has been together for 25 years and raised kids who have moved out.  Middle-aged couples cheating is a little more understandable because they've…"

"Even if this were the reason, she had sex with a guy she picked up in a bar while she was in a stable committed relationship.  This indicates a character flaw far more serious than anything I could deal with.  You can love a crazy person,…"

How To Act

- Never under compulsion, out of selfishness, without forethought, with misgivings
- Don't gussy up your thoughts
- No surplus words or unnecessary actions
- Let the spirit in you represent a man, an adult, a citizen, a Roman, a ruler. Taking up his post like a soldier and patiently awaiting his recall from life. Needing no oath or witness.
- Cheerfulness. Without requiring other people's help. Or serenity supplied by others.
- To stand up straight, not straightened.

Marcus Aurelius

I do not normally have the opportunity to consort with royalty, so this could be fun.
