Hm my dad did that to his "mistress". He told my mom that he took a pay cut but he was actually paying for her rent and buy her things. He was even buying her kids new clothes. My mother had to pick up a second job to support us......... and they were still married and my father was hiding all this from her.
When mom found out that dad had put new tires on this womans car .... she went and slashed them. Gotta love a pissed off Scorpio woman huh?
