Not exactly politics but I thought I share this musing a friend of the subject shared.
A man packs his belongings after a hotel stay during a business trip and heads home. In unpacking his bags, his wife finds an unused packet of condoms.
Without saying anything to her husband, the wife places the condoms on his side of bed nightstand.
The husband sees them and, puzzled, asks his wife why she thought after all these years of marriage (15) it was necessary to use condoms, and also given she had tubal ligation after the birth of their second child.
The wife did not say much other than to say she appreciated the man was being safe when “sleeping around” but the marriage was over as far as she was concerned. Confused and puzzled at the same time, the man prodded his wife to explain what the heck she was talking about as he had no clue.
“I found those in your bag when I was unpacking!” she yelled back at him.
The man, as best and as calmly as he could, tried to explain to the wife he had no idea how that could be because he never procured the condoms and neither did he pack them.
She could hear none of it but instead berated the man and long story short, the marriage was irreparably damaged from that moment on as the man simply retreated and, to make matters worse, the wife, who was convinced her husband was “sleeping around,” started her own affair with another man.
The husband found out about the affair and the couple with now 2 teenage children, divorced.
The condom package was in one of the hotel drawers the husband had put his personals and he unknowingly had them packed along with his stuff when he was packing to leave the hotel.
The man had not previously cheated on his wife; at least he so maintains, and neither did he do so even after the ugly confrontation about the condoms.
Only the wife did following that incident, and based on her now obviously mistaken belief and all this from an innocent act of the man unknowingly packing the pack of condoms.
Moral of the story: Don’t rush to conclusions even when you think you have all the evidence; there just could be an innocent explanation just as this one.
