.....no one does good, not even one. Romans 3:12
That’s just wrong.
“Upon graduating, shed joined the light infantry officers corps as a paratrooper...”
Sorry, Fred, but details count: Women are not commissioned as Infantry Officers! They can and do go to Airborne School, and can be assigned to the 82d Infantry Division (Airborne), but that does not make them an “Infantry Officer”. I know, as my wife has her Airborne wings (I’m just a dirty, nasty, straight-leg Engineer).
Unless things have changed since I retired on this past August...they darned sure weren’t that way when she graduated in ‘95.
We are also blessed with will power and can resist these situations.He could have been a good man and husband and walked away from her.
I’ve always said, if you want to see who is getting paid off, look at the jobs the spouses have.
Thank you for sayin' it.
This is what we used to believe marriage was:
DEARLY beloved, we are gathered together here in the sight of God,
and in the face of this Congregation, to join together this Man and this Woman
in holy Matrimony; which is an honourable estate, instituted of God in the time of man's innocency,
signifying unto us the mystical union that is betwixt Christ and his Church...
...and therefore is not by any to be enterprised, nor taken in hand, unadvisedly, lightly, or wantonly;
but reverently, discreetly, advisedly, soberly, and in the fear of God;
duly considering the causes for which Matrimony was ordained:
First, for the increase of mankind, according to the will of God, and for the due ordering of families and households, that children might be brought up in the fear and nurture of the Lord, and to the praise of his holy Name;
Secondly, for the hallowing of the union betwixt man and woman, and for the avoidance of sin;
Thirdly, for the mutual society, help, and comfort, that the one ought to have of the other, both in prosperity and adversity.
Into which holy estate these two Persons present come now to be joined...
I hate freepers like you. Everything is superficial. Betcha your a real pleasure to be around.
Some people feel sorry for the wife and it may make her feel obligated to divorce him but if she is a Christian she should know that would be wrong, and if she is not a Christian then what the hell is wrong with it.
I would imagine she most likely had better reasons to be married to him than just the belief that he would never look at another woman.
If i found that my wife married me just because she thought i was void of the feelings that a man is made of it would be a bad deal.
So, he screwed her mind?
Come on! A 50 some year old guy who has to prove he’s better than the younger guys by outrunning them? You think he might want to affirm his virility by having an affair with a good looking younger woman? What a surprise! The guy has psychological problems, but he’s trim and a good runner so he makes four stars. I wonder why we haven’t won in 11years in Afghanistan? The dummy should have been figuring out how to win instead of trying to impress everyone with his running. Or at least get his behind out of the way and let someone else have a chance at winning.
Spoken like a real man. There are so few of you, especially nowadays.
Too many selfish people marry, even though they can never truly commit. Then they use up the best years of their devoted spouses' lives. I hope his wife takes him to the cleaners, and I hope her husband is awarded full custody of the children.
God bless you.
Please. Republican (men) are just as stupid when it comes to women as Democrats are.
you are being silly, she is just a worldly narcissistic woman with loose morals
you are a complete pr8ck, that poor woman kept the homefires burning, raised the kids by herself and this is her reward? Look at him he is butt ugly and short too
absolutely, she is a narcissist homewrecker who only thinks about herself and how superior she is to others
That's what makes him a man.
he is self sexual probably
So you are just a pr8ck too by your comment “Look at him he is butt ugly and short too”
I am female so I can’t be what you said you nasty piece of idiocy, it is not the same point at all genius. He is butt ugly and she was true to him anyway. Get out you are too shallow to be real
He’s possibly a serial womanizer
We got married because not only were we in love, but we actually liked each other and enjoyed being together. Although she has no choice in the matter of being together now, we still like each other. What I've had to endure is nothing compared to what she has. Not once has she ever complained about her plight. I doubt I would have been nearly as stoic and resolute facing the same pain, suffering and challenges.
Thank you, but my wife is the one who deserves God's blessings.
“How could hethis acclaimed leader and figure of rectitudeallow such a thing to happen?”
There are numerous interviews with Paula Broadwell on the web. Most of them are relating to the Petraeus’ Biography. They are very interesting. Gives you an insight to her and P4.
In one interview, she says she has ADD...in another she talks about a Petraeus’ father as being rigidly stern and never praising or being accepting of him.
Broadwell even knew Holly Petreaus and had interviewed her for the book. She spoke highly of Mrs Petraeus and seemed to genuinely like her.
Broadwell is very intelligent and I assume she and P4 were compatible intellectually, militarily and emotionally. There were a lot of conversations between the two over a period of years. I am thinking they know each other very well.
It is all very odd.
I’m guessing that turning 60, midlife crisis, and having prostate cancer might have deranged his mind.
Well said, Mesta.
Humans are meant to rise above their animal nature; if they don’t, they are not “human” - they are four legged animals.
Humans are meant to rise above their animal nature; if they dont, they are not human - they are TWO legged animals.
Bipeds. Saves time. LOL
Some people do it b/c their shack-up buddy is a social climber, and they blow sunshine up the other person's nether regions.
From what I've been reading, that appears to be the case here.
I’m surprised that no one has yet dug up Braodwell’s class album from WP..the cadets are often scathing in their assessment of their fellow classmates..it’d be interesting to see what they wrote about her..
