A Chinese perspective on adultery

From Sue:
At my high school reunion this past weekend, a former classmate, who lived and worked in China for many years, asked me why I got divorced. When I explained that my husband was having an affair, he asked incredulously, "That's why you broke up?" He said that in China, all husbands have mistresses, and that these girlfriends are very young. Apparently the wives accept this and no one ends a marriage over it. He was under the impression that the wives don't reciprocate, either. A bum deal every way you look at it, except for the men.
