Excerpt from The Fates Are Laughing
She-had had, so she said, the bad luck to have for her third husband a man who was fond of her but jealous. She found marital restrictions irksome even when she did not observe them and she welcomed the liberty given by her last husband's death. Childless and rich, she was courted by all ages, from striplings to old men, and by all callings, from senators and knights to actors and gladiators, all of whom hoped to be rewarded for their attentions, if not during her life, in her will when she was dead.
