Desperate Men and Pitiful Wives

I guess I am happily married. Curry doesn't appear to be having an affair and after 2 kids with not much of a model physique to flaunt let alone time to patch up on my sagging face due to too much grumbling and frowning over every teeny weeny matter concerning the kids, watching Korean and American soapy dramas and drooling over the hunks is my only extra marital affairs. There are times when our minds don't meet and our hearts ache for stupid reasons. And yet we always patch up and decide to live with each other for better or worse, knowing that it is better to have each other than to have no one!

The recent prostitution saga involving the Governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer is a very good example that prominent individuals do cheat on their spouses like any other disrespectful philanderer and the fact that they hold public offices which are supposedly to project ethical and exemplary behaviors and choices in life makes their illicit activities more despicable than an ordinary person. Although Ex-President Bill Clinton was successful during his 2 terms as President, he will always be known as the man who smudged Monica Lewinsky's blue dress. The US Senator from Idaho, Larry Craig must be thinking that it was all a joke when he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from his infamous actions in an airport bathroom, of which he is now trying to detract by bringing the matter before the wise men of the Court of Appeal. Certainly he cannot be thinking that he can be both law maker and law breaker simultaneously and the fact that he was alleged to solicit sex from men makes Bill Clinton's liasons modest by all accounts!

While I will never understand why these men can be so capricious in subduing their lusts, I find their wives who stand behind them in their press conferences and trying to put up a stoic face with holding hands amidst all the sneerings of normal thinking women and numerous speculative media equally obnoxious as their philandering husbands. If they choose to believe their husbands and use their own words in their own respective interviews or press conferences, at least the obligatory wives will not look so dumb on camera. Isn't it humiliating enough already to learn that your husband is cheating and the media informing you first hand before he decides to confess that you have to stand at the podium to be further insulted with his denials or admissions and listening him telling about the acts publicly when your mind is perplexed as to the truth and your heart aches like it is going to stop working. For the pride of women, please reserve some dignity.
