    Oh, right. I misunderstood too. I thought they were two completely unrelated sentences. And I read Jane instead of James.

    Is this okay?

    "Either you let me sleep with Patrick without making a fuss or I'm filing for divorce," said Nicole in an admonishing tone.

    "Heads, you win, tails, I lose," answered Jame [her husband].

    It seems like a strange deal. If James' wife wants to sleep with another man, divorce seems like a great result!

    The option of sleeping with another man is the treat for the wife.
