Paying for Infidelity--With Diamonds
Every time British businessman Robert Charlton cheated on his wife, he bought her some extravagant jewelry to try to make amends. After 26 years of marriage, long-suffering Elizabeth Charlton had more than 40 glittering pieces.Charlton's infidelity cost him nearly 300,000 pounds ($492,400)
This is certainly not a usual
arrangement in a marriage
but it seems tro have worked
for this couple in Engfland. It
was expensive for the husband.
Most wives would probably
have filed for a divorce and then
tried to get even more money.
