...and yell, "Twunt!" at Pinkerton. I think Puccini was one of the very first MNers. I'd have loved to have seen what our very own nest of vipers would have made of this low life!

After all, this DH (twice over) bought his first wife on a 999 year lease, fathered a child, abandoned her for three years and married his OW. He then admits his cowardice when confronted by the loveliness of wife number one and his former home and sends OW to take the child from the only home he's ever known; leaving wife number one with a sharp knife and a serious lack of hope.

TWUNT

She has a RL friend but her upbringing and parental example seem to show a pathway to an early demise...

When I went to see it everyone booed and hissed at Pinkerton at the end grin Proper pant!

YANBU!

Only if you also shout 'leave the bastard' in the middle of the flower duet....

In many ways yanbu, but it would spoil the music.

It's a shame she avails herself of the sharp knife though. The bastard's not worth it. She should just get on the internet and get on the relationships board for a bit of sisterly support.

make a point of shouting out RED FLAG regularly

You should definitely boo him at the end. It is expected.

This is one case where pointing out that He's Not That Into You might actually be the kind thing to do.

I don't think he would have attended the couples counselling.
