Jealous Men (Classic Brainteaser Puzzle)

Three men with their wives come to a river. The boat they find can only take 2 people at a time. Because the men are all extremely jealous, no woman can be left with another man unless her own husband is also present. So how do they manage to cross the river?

Clue for the Puzzle:

Start off by A taking his wife across and coming back alone.

Answer for the Puzzle:

A takes his wife across and return alone. Then B’s and C’s wife cross together. A’s wife comes back. B and C then cross over and B comes back with his wife, leaving C and his wife on the far side. A and B then cross and C’s wife returns. A’s and B’s wives now cross. C rows back and fetches his wife.
