Cheating “For The Right Reasons”

A husband and wife were having dinner one night when the husband reached across the table and took his wife’s hand, saying, “Martha, in a few years, we will celebrate 50 years of marriage. I need to tell you something.”. Have you ever been unfaithful to me?””

Then Martha replied, “Well Henry, let me be honest with you. While I have been unfaithful to you three times during these 50 years, it has always been for a good reason.

Henry was clearly hurt by his wife’s confession, but said, “I never suspected.”. What do you mean by ‘good reasons?

The first time happened shortly after we got married, and we were about to lose our little house because we couldn’t pay the mortgage.

Remember when I went to see the banker one evening and the next day he told you that the loan would be extended?

Henry recalled the banker’s visit and said, “I can forgive you for that.”. I know you helped us save the home, but what about the second time?””

Martha asked, “And do you remember when you were so sick and we couldn’t afford to pay for your heart surgery?”?

Well, I went to your doctor one night, and he performed the surgery for free.”

“I remember that,” Henry said. “I forgive you because you saved my life.”.

Tell me about the third time.”

“Okay,” Martha replied. Do you remember when you ran for president of your golf club and you needed 73 more votes? ””
