MOD­ERN wives are more will­ing to “turn a blind eye” to a love rat hubby’s cheat­ing to save their mar­riage, ac­cord­ing to a de­press­ing re­port. Di­vorce pe­ti­tions sub­mit­ted by women have dropped by 45 per cent in the past 25 years and a lawyer reck­ons it’s be­cause wives are bet­ter at “deal­ing with threats”to their re­la­tion­ships than men. Ellen Walker, of Hall Brown Fam­ily Law, said women of­ten live with af­fairs, fi­nan­cial prob­lems, ad­dic­tions and even do­mes­tic vi­o­lence un­til the is­sues be­came so se­vere that they reach a “mar­i­tal wa­ter­shed.” She said: “Their part­ners are some­times shocked to learn there is a limit, given the de­gree to which they had been for­given be­fore.” Like a woman who di­vorced her bloke only when he brought his long-term lover back to their fam­ily home. Yep, that would trou­ble the wa­ters. Shame her wa­ter­shed mo­ment didn’t come a damn site sooner.
