Karen Vaughan was a young woman who frequently took classes on a variety of subjects. Her husband Mike was of the opinion that taking lessons was her hobby. During the years of their marriage, she took classes in law for non-lawyers, cake-decorating, horseback riding, French cuisine, waltzing, and spreadsheets, among other things. However, these educational pursuits had taken their toll on the Vaughan's marriage, particularly their sex life.

After an extended business trip to Chicago, Karen returned home to Mike with a surprising sexual passion. Mike commented that Karen must have been "taking lessons." In truth, she'd been having an affair while in Chicago. Karen and Mike got a divorce, with Karen filing the papers with the knowledge she'd learned from her law for non-lawyers class.
