U.K. wife: Hubby's 'Nothing But the Truth' honesty improved marriage
UPI News Service, 01/19/2008
A British husband's honesty about his sex life on a television show has won him $100,000 and -- his wife says -- strengthened their marriage.
Stuart Brandwood was hooked up to a lie detector during taping of "Nothing But the Truth," a U.K. show hosted by Jerry Springer, The Daily Mail reports. The first show, featuring Brandwood and his wife, Amanda, airs Wednesday on Sky One.
Amanda Brandwood, of Warrington in Cheshire, said her marriage is "stronger than ever" now that she has worked through her husband's answers and forgiven her.
She submitted two questions for Springer to ask her husband. One, whether he had ever paid for sex, made the cut, while the other, whether he had had an affair, did not.
But her husband admitted the affair to her privately because he did not want her to hear it first on television.
Springer also asked him if Amanda was the best lover he had had -- and he said "no."
Brandwood said he was 30 when he married Amanda and she realized he had a past.
