Former Gingrich Wife Says He Asked for ‘Open Marriage’
NYTimes ^ | January 19, 2012 | TRIP GABRIEL

Posted on 01/19/2012 7:51:31 AM PST by maggief

EXCERPT

Paraphrasing Marianne Gingrich’s account, Mr. Ross said, “He came to her and said I want to stay married to you and still have an affair with Callista.” Marianne said Mr. Gingrich asked her “share” him, Mr. Ross said. That was unacceptable to her and the marriage ended.

Did Ms. Bitter get this on tape or in writing?

I don't see Newt wanting to stay married to her bitter butt and keep Callista in hiding.

So far...the BS meter is going way off on this.

She insisted on divorcing him.

Maybe he got the result he actually wanted. Me thinks so.

Because he married her.

I agree, but so is the "who gives a damn meter". It has been no secret that all of Newt's marriages began and ended with an affair. So Newt likes the ladies.......I can appreciate this attribute. I've got two words for the professional left and liberal finger pointers: Bill Clinton.

Wishful thinking. This is the woman he was cheating on his first wife with. The man's not faithful. Period. He can't be trusted. Not by his wives, his party or conservatives. He's jumped on every big state solution to every so called problem there is. What a fuster cluck this election is.

“But Marianne was having problems of her own. After going to the doctor for a mysterious tingling in her hand, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Early in May, she went out to Ohio for her mother’s birthday. A day and a half went by and Newt didn’t return her calls, which was strange. They always talked every day, often ten times a day, so she was frantic by the time he called to say he needed to talk to her.

“About what?”

He wanted to talk in person, he said.

“I said, ‘No, we need to talk now.’ “

He went quiet.

“There’s somebody else, isn’t there?”

She kind of guessed it, of course. Women usually do. But did she know the woman was in her apartment, eating off her plates, sleeping in her bed?

She called a minister they both trusted. He came over to the house the next day and worked with them the whole weekend, but Gingrich just kept saying she was a Jaguar and all he wanted was a Chevrolet. “ ‘I can’t handle a Jaguar right now.’ He said that many times. ‘All I want is a Chevrolet.’ “

He asked her to just tolerate the affair, an offer she refused.”

For all the lurid details of Newt’s sexcapades, not only with his 2 ex-wives, see:

Divorce mediator meets with Gingriches today
The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution - Thursday, December 16, 1999
Author: Duane D. Stanford; Staff
Newt Gingrich and Marianne Gingrich will try to reach a divorce settlement today in their first face-to-face meeting since their split.

The couple is scheduled to appear for a court-ordered mediation session in Cobb County. The meeting will be held at the offices of Marianne Gingrich ‘s attorney, John Mayoue.

An agreement today may be a lot to ask, however.

Marianne Gingrich has yet to question under oath her estranged husband’s admitted girlfriend, Callista Bisek. Marianne Gingrich and Mayoue have considered the deposition a key element of their case. Newt Gingrich’s attorney, Randy Evans, says Marianne Gingrich has refused to even discuss a settlement until she questions Bisek.

Last month, a Washington judge ordered Bisek to answer questions under oath for Marianne Gingrich and provide documents related to her affair with Gingrich. The documents include cards, phone records and bank statements dating back to 1995, when Newt Gingrich became speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Gingrich and Bisek, a scheduler for the House Agriculture Committee, have admitted they’ve been seeing each other for six years.

Newt is not “toast” to me. I don't give a rat's patootie about his sex life! I didn't care about clinton’s either, I disliked clinton for other reasons. Mr.Ditter and I have been happily married for 54 years and that is our business, same as Newt's marriages are his business.

Yep.

Now Newt is asking America to have an open marriage in regard to capitalism, conservative principles and consulting with socialistic government mortgage agencies.

No thanks, Newt.

In the same interview she complained that he asked her for a divorce 3 months after they learned she had MS. Romney will be standing on a stage with his wife who has been struggling with MS for years. The optics do not look good for Newt trying to attract female evangelicals and conservatives. Santorum could be the chief beneficiary for such women looking for an anti Romney candidate.

A judge forced Gingrich to answer 32 questions from his wife’s lawyers. Most were about his finances, but one question asked Gingrich to list any lovers he had besides his wife during their marriage. Another question asked whether his actions as a spouse were consistent with the ‘’family values’’ he espoused as a politician.

GINGRICH SUBMITS ANSWERS, EXCEPT FOR ONE
Macon Telegraph, The (GA) - Thursday, December 9, 1999
Author: The Associated Press
- Newt Gingrich answered all but one of the questions his wife asked as part of their divorce proceeding, the former House speaker’s lawyer said Wednesday.

A Cobb County judge had given Gingrich until Monday to ‘’fully and completely’’ answer questions posed by his estranged wife, Marianne Gingrich .

Gingrich’s lawyer, Randy Evans, wouldn’t say which of the 32 questions Gingrich refused to answer, and he refused to release them.

The questions Gingrich answered include one about whether Gingrich’s actions as a spouse were consistent with the ‘’family values’’ he espoused as a politician and public speaker.

Evans also declined to say whether Gingrich responded to a question that asks him to list any lovers he’s had besides his wife during their 18-year marriage. Most of the questions concerned Gingrich’s finances.

I have an ex-wife (one).

Whenever I encounter a man with an ex-wife count of zero, if my count of one ever comes up, I always congratulate him on his blessings and tell him how lucky he is.

I think Newt has displayed sufficient humility about his unfortunate situation to suit me. I voted for him in NH and I hope he is nominated.
