“Open” Marriage

So…forget what I said about the Hollywood Standard. Apparently, I forgot about the ‘Political Standard’. Our society is suffocating itself slowly and painfully thanks to our idols and leadership examples.

I came across this article published an hour ago talking about Newt Gingrich. His second ex-wife is alleging that he asked her to consider an “open” marriage with him – one where he could have his cake and eat it too. A man with a wife and mistress. Lovely.

What bothers me most is reading how this story allegedly hits other emotional facets of one’s marriage vows:

Gingrich divorced his first wife as she was being treated for cancer. Gingrich moved toward a divorce with Marianne Gingrich months after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis…

So much for “in sickness and in health.”

These statements are alleged, but paint a depressing and ugly picture of how a train can derail. Not just once, but in eventual relationships and marriages a person undertakes. Habits are very hard to break and marriages can (repeatedly) pay the price.
