Pronunciation: Cown-sel-quen-se

Sentence: When Nicola heard the knock on her door late one night she knew it would be her best friend Dana with news of the latest tragic event in her life. This time she found her in floods of tears, when she asked her what was wrong she told her that she had been seeing a married man and didn't know what to do. Being a good friend Nicola sat and listened to her for the next five hours, eventually she advised her to give the man an ultimatum, the wife or her. Dana thanked her and left. What she hadn't realised however was that the man in question was her own husband, but she soon found out when the counselquence ended in him packing his bags and moving in with Dana a week later.
