    Do Not Buy Into The Idea

    Dear friends and Teachers,

    1. What your husband is doing to your relationship is very wrong. Do not buy into the idea that all the guys do it and it is ok. He is depriving you emotionally because he has a problem with pornographic material.

    - Does "do not buy into the idea" means "do not think that"?

    Thanks a million!

    Oh, we males!
