O cara trai a esposa com uma colega de trabalho. Ficou um ano com este relacionamento.
A outra mulher entra em contato com a esposa e conta tudo para ela.
A esposa vai passar as férias com a mãe, a irmã e a filhinha para se distanciar do marido.
Ele resolve reformar a casa para agradar a esposa.
E por aí vai...
Ele merecia um chute na bunda bem forte.
