Howard's attempt to make Christine take a lie detector test about whether or not she fucked her emotional friend is a prime example of Stern Show first. Sal does not want to know and does not want a divorce because a) he seems to have a good thing in Christine and appears to love her b) he has little kids who are harmed the most by a divorce and c) he cannot afford it. Howard doesn't seem to have the slightest care about the consequences of Christine failing the lie dectector test. In fact he stated that if he found that Beth had fucked another man, it would be all over. Macho Artie of course chimed in he agreed with Howard. I think I used to be in that camp too. But not every culture has a one-strike rule when it comes cheating. It is crazy. If both people still love each other and they have otherwise made a nice life together, one strike and you're out is an insane policy.
