A husband who spends all of his time drinking with his friends neglects his wife, who creates her own life and amusement. Since he is so drunk, he can't even tell that she is having an affair, she brushes him off by telling him he is drunk and doesn't see what he thinks he sees. She obviously understands how drunk he is since her explanations make no sense, but he accepts them night after night.
