five hours a month, "The Good Wife" for 10 hours, or "The Trophy Wife"
for 15 hours.

anyone who needs more time and eight more hands."

This system was traditionally rooted in face-to-face interactions and a paper trail of credentials. Due to rapid technological advancements in the digital age, identity verification has undergone significant transformations, adapting to new technologies and addressing the escalating demand for speed, accuracy, and security.
