The Secret To French Marriages?
Infidelity. I can’t decide if I’m totally shocked or wholly unsurprised by the U.K.’s Daily Mail claim that French women get married knowing (and expecting) their husbands will cheat. When Brit Lucy Wadham married her French boyfriend she had no idea he would keep on keeping on in the bedroom with all of his ex-lovers. She details a night she unknowingly attended what’s called a partouze, subtle French for “group trysts”—only figuring it out after stumbling in on three dinner party guests in a guest bedroom. Infidelity was (and is) a way of life, she explains—and not without her own propositions, either!
This all just brings us back to the universal relationship question—are we or aren’t we built for monogamy? Is marital bliss something to work for or shall we think like the French and embrace our genetic need for multiple partners? [Daily Mail U.K.]
