1) Bowl her over with laughter. Ancient wisdom says laughter is the best medicine. Perhaps it was someone in a marriage that has had a few ups and downs that coined the phrase. While adultery is on the downswing for the average marriage it doesn’t have to be the final out for your marriage. She used to laugh at your jokes. Your mission now is to find out if she was really amused or just so in love with you that she laughed for the sake of your ego. Cheating may be no laughing matter but any marriage worth hanging onto should be filled with love and laughter.

First, there isn’t currently very much competition on the Internet. Second, in a few years, the Internet is going to be an invaluable tool to market to this demographic. In other words, start your online marketing now.
