1. “First, I’d give thanks that I was finally making enough money to afford a nanny then I’d fire the nanny and then fire the husband.”

—Cheri, 23

2. “This whole hypothetical skeeves me out. I mean, would this woman have been washing my sheets and clothes for years? Taking care of my kids? I can’t think of many scenarios that would make me want to start tearing a bitch’s hair out by the roots but this is definitely one of them.”

—Olivia, 25

3. “Everyone always seems to know exactly what they’d do if they caught their SO cheating but I’ve known of several friends who caught their husbands or boyfriends doing just that over the years including one husband who’d been screwing their housekeeper for three years. That couple is still together. I like to think that it would be a simple decision for me just to end it but it’s hard to know what I’d really do.”

—Sabrina, 28

4. “My husband and I aren’t rich and I do trust him completely but/but last year we decided that both of us worked too much to really keep up with all the housework all the time and see we hired a maid to come in once a week just to do some basic upkeep like vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, etc. I did the interviews and I absolutely did make sure that the woman we ended up hiring was as unattractive as possible. I don’t think it would ever happen but I wanted to make sure it would never happen too if you know what I mean.”

—Jenny, 26

5. “It honestly depends. Does he have Drake level money? Have we been married ten years? I’d leave him eventually but if I was married to some rich dude then I’d make sure to stick around long enough to get something for my trouble once I did leave him and I guarantee I’d be doing some stepping out on my own afterward. Once someone cheats, all bets are off as far as I’m concerned.

I’m in no way suggesting Drake would ever cheat. Drake’s the kind of guy who would warn you your man was cheating.”

—Allie, 24

6. “I’ve never understood why men cheat with the maid or the nanny. It seems tacky. I’d definitely leave him though.”

—Brianne, 22

7. “I can’t imagine getting cheated on in my own home. That’s got to be the worst violation of trust I could ever imagine. There’d be no coming back from that for me.”

—Erin, 25

8. “I’m going to be honest here, it really depends on how the marriage was otherwise. Was this a one-time thing? Did it happen consistently for a long time? I’m not excusing cheating but I’ve been tempted before and even though I’ve never gone through with it I can easily see different circumstances where I might have. So, it really just depends.”

—Marie, 28

9. “This is such a common thing for men to try. My mother was a housekeeper while she was in college. I was like two years old at the time. She and my dad had been married for three years. She says that husbands consistently hit on her, tried to get her to do ‘extra’ things for money. If your husband does this he’s a scumbag.”

—Kendra, 24

10. “This would never happen to me. I’ve seen enough movies and celeb mags to know that it’s inevitable, the husband will always bang the maid or housekeeper or whatever. I’d let the house go filthy before I ever hired a woman in a maid outfit to come clean it.

Oh who am I kidding, my house is already filthy.”

—Gianna, 25

11. “Who has a nanny? I want to meet these people my age that have nannies. It sounds like they should be wearing little uniforms, maybe be able to do magic like Mary Poppins. Okay, on that note, I would totally be okay with any future husband I might have banging with Mary Poppins. I couldn’t even be mad about that.”

—Clarice, 24

12. “Welp. Divorce. The end.”

—Jamie, 20

13. “It’s funny because men are lazy. The ones that cheat with nannies and housekeepers do it because those women are around, not because they always wanted to have sex with a nanny. I’d be more angry at how lazy my husband was than that he’d slept with the nanny. Okay, maybe not more angry but just as angry.”

—Pam, 27

14. “I’m the only nanny my husband will ever get to come across. No way I’m letting someone into my home that I don’t know enough to trust.”

—Heather, 29

15. “It depends, is it a Mrs. Doubtfire type nanny or like a hot nanny from Sweden or Colombia with an incredible accent or something? My reaction would depend a lot on how hot the nanny was and exactly how stupid I’d been in hiring her. I’m joking but also sort of not joking.”
