It is said that every cloud has a silver lining and sometimes even thunderstorms do too. Taking a lesson from the world of 20th Century art, I would therefore like to offer some advice to any woman who believes her husband may be having an affair: get him to painting classes, quickly! Pablo Picasso painted his mistress and the picture sold this week for £25 million. Now just think what your husband might be able to earn from his works of art. If it is all going to end in tears, at least the funds to be divided between you could be substantially supplemented or alternatively you could accept a couple of his canvasses as part of your financial settlement and store them in your attic until the time for auction is right.
