A Woman's Guide to Adultery (1993– )
User ReviewsReview this title
Trying to put myself back then, I remember the boredom of marriage, and the excitement of stealing a married man, but it seems all so tawdry now. And again, not worth the outcomes at all. If you get him, here's the point: You SHOULD have to marry him for that night when he comes home with perfume all over saying, "Babe, the chickens done come home to roost."!!!
The main character, Rose, thinks that committing adultery is the worst crime. And yet *all* of her friends are doing just that. What does this say about society? At any rate, she falls for her photography teacher (Who wouldn't? Sean Bean plays yet another jerk, but he's a good looking jerk) who just happens to be the brother of her closest friend (who's having an affair with a politician.) She finds out before they actually begin their affair that he's married, though he doesn't volunteer this information.
So they have an affair and then she feels betrayed because when his wife get pregnant, he returns to her. Huh? She, in her own words, shouldn't have been having an affair to begin with. And she gets really really annoyed that he won't take her on a ferry ride.
Eventually her friend's marriage disintegrates in a subplot that no one cares about but it does have a rather fun scene in which a stereo goes through a window.
