I was talking to one of my cousins. I rarely talk to her. Mostly at family functions.

Anyway, somehow, we started talking about her divorce. I swear, this is what she said:
"Idk what happened. I kept the house clean. I took care of the boys. I did all the shopping. He just had a problem with me sleeping with other people. He wouldn't get over it."
I was speechless. I get that some people have relationships like that. But, obviously, he wasn't into that. And she acted like it was something everyone did. What would you have said?

That it's not something everyone does, lol.  Those that do sleep with other people, where it's okay, have probably agreed on it.

Haha! Wow...what would I have said??? Not sure...either pretend to have sympathy or tell her she'll find someone who is OK with it or just burst out laughing (or trying not to).

It was so awkward. I wasn't sure of what kind of reaction she was expecting. LOL

I probably would have asked if she was serious.

I would have told her that is not the norm unless it was an open marriage.

Omg I think I would have said "Seriously?" And then schooled her on "normal" marriage ideals and why he would be opposed to Her being a cheating skank. Wow. What she said sounds like something out of a sitcom.
