DEAR ABBY: I recently found out that my husband of 20 years bought diamond earrings and something from Victoria's Secret for another woman. His explanation? "She's just a friend, and she's married to a jerk." He has told me many different stories about her. I checked them out and found they were all lies.
Someone once told me that when a man buys diamond earrings or a bracelet, it means he's already slept with her. What do you think? -- WANTS THE TRUTH IN MINNESOTA
DEAR WANTS THE TRUTH: Diamond earrings? That's quite an investment. When a man gives diamonds to a woman, it's a good bet that he's getting plenty in return -- or hoping to.
