Assuming answering as to “why” is not the same as excusing - another answer might be “have you seen Holly Patraeus?”

Just sayin.....she obviously just gave up about 25 years ago....

I am a man, have been married for 20 wonderful if sometimes tumultuous years. I travel for a living so have had many opportunities.

Frankly, I would cut off my own Johnson before cheating on my wife (actually it isn’t a problem — I would be unable to perform).

Maybe I am a “strange man” but love, respect and loyalty are all wrapped up in sex for me.

I am sure I am not alone.

Okay I looked at her pic....

She does look like that gym teacher from the movie “Porkys”.

However he did marry her years ago and he must have loved her to do so.

Again, not excusing, but she has no excuse for letting herself go, and she has no excuse for agreeing to work for Eliz Warren (oh yes, she does). I am not involved with this family, so I’ll ahve a little fun with it.

I guess I am blessed to have a wife who would never let herself go, and who would never work for Elizabeth Warren.

I saw a picture of her and him at West Point before they married. She was a beautiful young girl.

I guess some “men” base their “vows” on how their wives look the day of their marriage.

I guess some “men” feel entitled to withdraw those vows when their wives suffer from Multiple Sclerosis or heart disease or Female Baldness or Psoriasis or, God forbid, simple aging.

Oh well...I hear the Constitution is too old and not relevant anymore, too. Toss it aside. We need a Constitution with more “perky” amendments.

I guess you have no sense of humor. I said I was going to have some fun with this issue, but no, you had to go legalistic, phariseeical, preachy, dogmatic, and totally unappealing.

I am betting you are in an awful marriage, but you slog if out. As for me, I have a great marriage - and my wife and I both know - we owe it to each other to try.

That’s part of what Holly dear forgot.

Oh, your reading comprehension sucks. I said it was no excuse for the General.
So suck an egg.

Is it really fair to compare Holly Patraeus to a woman so much younger, and who has not lived the same life circumstances?

“Has not [the LORD] made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.” Malachi 2:15 NIV

First of all, I’m making light of this for discussion purposes, and I am sorry to have stirred up all the prudes.

Second, I am compaing Holly to the General. They are the same age or close. She has not taken care of herself. He has.

I’m comparing Holly to other women in the mid 50 to 60 range. She looks 75.

And again, I am not the official marriage counselor here nor the divorce attorney. I do however reserve my right to use the First Amendment to exercise my observations.

Pat Robertson is off his rocker. I recall not too long ago he said that a man could divorce his wife with Alzheimer’s because she wasn’t really “her” anymore.

I love all of these comments about Holly’s looks - both the serious ones and the ones made in jest. My first and immediate reactions to the news were:

1 - Oh No, not General Petraus
2 - BLACKMAIL by Obama
3 - EEEWWWWWWWW!!!!!

She was the daughter of the superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy.

I am in a wonderful marriage...thank God.

I admit to losing my sense of humor, temporarily, over the fraudulent “selection” and the prurient angle the brown-nosing-Bath-House-Barry-Press has taken when military families have lost loved ones who were patriots.

Perhaps I shouldn’t have responded to YOUR post, but to Pat Robertson’s website. His “boys will be boys” explanation rubs me the wrong way, and women seem ETERNALLY to be blamed for not remaining the attractive brides they were 20-30-40 years prior to a man’s adultery.

But, exactly what was it that “Holly dear forgot”?
Not to age?

You are not alone. You are what “normal” should be. Would never cheat on my wife. Would be cheating on myself, my kids, my family, my God.

I fully understand how easy it is not to have any humor in these days - I struggle with it myself. The marriage comment was tacky on my part, and I apologize for that. I know a lot of people I know who slog thru awful marriages are the most vindictive when a man or a woman strays. Those in good marriages do not condone it, but generally understand it - and understand that nothing is a one sided story.

As for what Holly forgot? She forgot to try - to keep trying - to keep “dating” your spouse. That’s been a key to my marriage. We have kids 16-25, but both look and act much younger and we still “date.”

Even going to the “Weekend to Remember” couples get away this coming week. Not because we’re in trouble...but because we want to keep “trying” so we don’t get in trouble....

Gotta try, always try, to stay as young and fresh as possible. That way, it’s not a slog.

“I guess I am blessed to have a wife who would never let herself go”

Hope she never finds herself undergoing cancer treatment. That can do a number on your looks.
