What was this woman thinking, she has wonderful kids and a super husband. Life can be full of surprises. What she did was very selfish and greedy! I think she got a slap on the hand and should have done more time for her punishment.

I know this family and I would have never suspected her to do something so selfish as this. Great husband and children. They are the ones who suffer the most.
