5. Becky Recalls A Time When Sam Needed A Loan
Becky reminds Sam that when he was 35 and starting his own business he was having trouble getting the needed finances. He needed a loan to get a good start but no bank would offer it to him.

1. Ignorance Is Sometimes Marriage Bliss
You shouldn’t ask the question if you can’t handle the answer, and the story of Sam and Becky shows that you need to think twice before searching for information. You may not like what you find, but at least you know your wife has a decent score in golf!
Love can be super complicated, and marriage can be utterly confusing. If you end up exchanging vows it’s important to remain truthful, whatever the cost. Sam’s story is a good lesson to anyone who is thinking of asking a question they don’t really want the answer to. Sometimes it is beneficial to live in ignorance, especially when it comes to dealing with wandering wives. Consider who you are marrying before you walk down the aisle, or you could end up with a Becky that knows how to get a hole-in-one!
