L.B.: Well, anyone who has been married seven times, as you have, can definitely be described as a combat veteran. What have you learned from your relentless matrimony?
R.E.: That women are smarter than men. They’re stronger, more secretive, and more intuitive. For instance, if a woman has an affair, the husband never catches on. He thinks, “Oh, she’s with me. She couldn’t possibly wander.” However, if the man wanders, the woman merely has to touch him or look at him to know exactly what’s been going on. You can’t get away with anything.
