METROPOLIS, MAY 3 —
Dear Prof. Expert,
Last year, my wife of 10 years and I went through a divorce. We each live and work in Metropolis, have many friends in common and, as a result, found ourselves bumping into one another repeatedly. Because of these serendipitous meetings, and the situations that resulted from them, we have started to rethink our divorce and have even looked into reconciliation.
Now, imagine my surprise when, last week, I came home to a woman claiming to be my wife and who has no knowledge of our divorce! In addition, I don’t seem to have any record of our divorce paperwork! Finally, my ex-wife still lives in her apartment and still remembers all of the events of the past year, including our divorce!
Confused yet? Me too! I am in love with two wonderful, smart and exciting women – who seem to be the same woman with entirely different histories and memories of the past year! What gives!?
HELP ME PROF. EXPERT!
Well, that’s quite a crisis! A month ago I would have chucked this in the circular file but with all the interesting changes going on around the world I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt. In fact, some men might not even consider this a problem at all! Have no fear – I have a solution. Polygamy! Sure it’s illegal and possibly immoral but unless you can figure out how to return one of these women to Earth-12, Earth-D (or whatever parallel world she hails from) it’s your only shot. Head West, young man and bring your blushing brides with you. Good Luck!
