    I stumbled on this while trying to get my head around this strange adultery test. I enjoyed your reflections on it.
    Part of it may be to do with paternity. The husband may be jealous, not just because of his wife’s activities but the fear that a child to come may not be his own.
    Now unless someone does a nifty switch in a maternity ward, no one is going to ask who the mum is.
    So in that respect, the test of the woman’s faithfulness but not the test for the man’s would make sense – since it is paternity not maternity that is in dispute.
    It doesn’t say the woman is pregnant, of course but the reference to the woman having children at the end seems a little telling – and continuing the family line does seem very important to that culture.
    I agree that it vindicates the woman and would hopefully reassure the man.
    I still find the test itself quite bizare – although I guess it beats spitting on the ground to heal someone’s eyes.

    Sorry you had such a rough time with your ex.Good to hear you found a good man..
