Why do couples get divorced? They cite all manner of reasons, but in the end, I believe it comes down to sex: interest withers, or someone cheats. How might a couple prevent a divorce? I thought: What if they made an agreement --- if you're tempted to cheat, bring that person home.

Lev Raphael

When I saw this excerpt all over Facebook recently, I had to cry foul. I knew it was fake. As bad a writer as E.L. James is, this isn't her special kind of bad. This is different.
