Need help keeping your professional athlete husband away from the hordes of women just waiting to sleep with him, confess, and then pose in Playboy? A group of NFL wives have started Off The Market, a company designed to nix cheating through exclusive couple events. Because, you know, just going on dates a couple plans themselves isn't enough.
The company's website and Facebook page fail to mention they're pandering to philandering athletes and their would-be jilted wives and girlfriends. Instead, they're rife with relationship advice, like these old-fashioned , tried-and-failed gems:
1. Cater to your mate's pleasures and desires, be it fried chicken or a foot massage.
2. Hold your tongue for the day and offer compliments rather than criticisms.
Some naysayers have suggested that such a service might give unfaithful athletes a chance to meet new women who are already familiar with the unique demands of the trophy wife life — and so increase cheating. It also kind of seems more like an excuse to get your husband to take you on fancy dates than a real remedy for what causes infidelity.
It's also definitely an amazing premise for a Bravo TV show — Real Housewives meets the Pick-Up Artist meets pro-football? Cash windfall.
