Home to Me

He is unfaithful when he is 33 years old, and he is still unfaithful when he is 62 years old. He cheats on his first wife with the woman who will become his second wife. He cheats on her, too. He drifts from affair to affair, from woman to woman, from his kind, wise and stable Wenche to the temperamental actress Marion and on to other, younger women. And he means it seriously every time. Every time he sees opportunities. Every time he thinks he can manage to handle things without hurting anyone.
