Hello! Help me with the colored part, please.

.........................................................................

Women are generally good at noticing and understanding things that men do not notice. This quality is particularly evident in women who have brought up young children, for a mother who has a young child relies largely upon non-verbal channels of communications. Thus, many women develop an ability to pick up and decipher non-verbal signals, as well as an accurate ey for small details. This is why few husbands can lie to their wives and get away with it and why, conversely, many women can pull the wool over a man's eyes.

........................................................................

I think the pink sentence has 2 meanings. It might be seperated into 2 parts.

Few husbands can lie to their wives and get away with it -> (1) Few husbands can lie to their wives. + (2) Few husbands can get away with it.

Thinking that way, (2) sounds strange. I understand the meaning of (2). But can't understand (2)

What does 'it' refer to in "Few husbands can get away with it"? ------- 'it' can't refer to 'lie', since lie should be plural and should be 'them'. then,

(A)what is 'it'?

(B) And what is the meaning of 'get away with'? -- I guessed it would mean 'expel, get rid of'.

As Nona said, doing somthing wrong but not being discovered.

Don't think you can cheat on your test and get away with it. Peter figured out a way steal money from him employer that he's convinced he can get away with.

Sounds like an idiomatic expression. Really thank you.
