Husbands and Wives

In discussing potential partners in China, my dad brought up a woman and her husband. He then immediately followed with "Real husband or fake husband I don't know. Anyway, doesn't matter." 

I decided not to ask...

Open marital relations are more common in China than you'd think. Those in high-powered positions often have "an understanding" with their spouses. If a Chinese official introduces you to his wife, then later introduces you to a DIFFERENT wife weeks, do not express surprise or confusion.
