Bridge 279UTSU-397 They were affectionate. Thomas always kissed her with such sincere affection every day before she went to school and he to work. He was always telling her how much he loved her, and it was clear to her that this was true. Yet he never insisted on having sex with her; even though she knew that he had to feel frequently frustrated, sexually. She knew he watched a lot of on-line porn. They often watched it together in the evenings. She knew that after she'd gone to bed, Thomas would stay up late into the early morning hours, masturbating. She'd worried at first that this might not be enough for her husband, but he had assured her that it was.
