He wins, but it's not nearly as good as he expected, as his brother-in-law prefers his best friend Juan. He is then forced to have constant sex with the wife he despises, and his beautiful lover Rebeca constantly pressures him to get rid of his wife to marry her. He is also ridiculed at the company for having a fat wife while everyone else has thin, beautiful wives, and also because everyone knows he is only interested in her money.
