Self Help Tips
Vikram Karve

A simple solution: 

Prevention is better than Cure. 
Try this at your own risk and tell us if it works.

This is written from a wife’s point of view, but equally applicable vice versa too ...
Suppose you are in a long distance marriage.

And you are worried that your darling “married bachelor” husband may get lonely, succumb to temptation, maybe get attracted to a forlorn colleague, find fulfilment with a work mate, his “office wife”, and develop a tendency to stray without you around to keep an eagle eye on him, a budding office romance could blossom into a full blown affair.

Tell me, do you sometimes wonder what your beloved husband is up to while you are far far away, out of sight and out of mind...?

Do you know where he is, who he is with, or how he is spending his time...?

Is he sitting at home like a good boy watching TV in the evenings or is he wining and dining his lady-love, getting cosy and romantic with her...?

You know he’s got the "glad eye" and you’ve heard rumours that he’s spending "quality time" time with an attractive colleague.

Infatuation with co-workers is not uncommon, especially in a long distance marriage, and spending quality time with a person he feels attracted to will only tempt him to get lovey-dovey and stray, especially when he is feeling lonely and deprived of physical contact.

Remember: Absence makes the heart wander 

Yes, absence does make the heart fonder - for someone else.

Now how do you nip it in the bud and prevent your “married bachelor” husband from having that affair...?

I’ll give you a simple solution – gift him a dog.

Yes, gift your darling husband a nice cute little puppy dog – preferably of a large ferocious super active high energy possessive protective breed like a Doberman.

Now you can relax, rest assured, because the dog will keep your husband so busy, and as the dog grows up under your husband’s loving care, the dog will shower him with so much love and loyalty, that he won’t have the time or the energy or the inclination to stray; and every time he looks at his adorable pet, he will be reminded of you and your precious gift.

Just hope for the best that your darling husband doesn’t run into “a lady with a dog”...!!!
