Cheating Husbands/Crying Wives

I have a few thoughts on this week’s sordid news flash regarding Spitzer’s adulterous relationship with expensive prostitutes. I don’t usually pay much attention to this stuff but this one really gets me. On the Today Show this week, the ex-wife of ex-governor Jim McGreevy (NJ) appeared to talk about how wives feel when their governor husbands do something stupid like have an affair.  NBC ran parallel news clips showing McGreevy’s apology speech and Spitzer’s apology speech. Both men are wearing the same red/white striped tie!!! It must be the “I’m sorry I got caught with my pants down” tie. Both wives are wearing blue suits.  What’s up with that?!

Men, if you are going to do something so amazingly stupid and selfish as hire a high priced escort, here are some rules to follow:

Don’t meet her on Valentine’s eve.
Don’t buy her online.
Don’t (for Pete’s sake) use Western Union wire transfers to pay for this crap.

If you have a few extra thousand dollars left to spend on something, your wife could probably really use a spa weekend or a new tiara!

My husband is extremely clear on what would happen if he was in Spitzer’s shoes. Or rather, what would NOT happen. He apparently told a co-worker yesterday that no way would I stand next to him on a public platform to listen to him apologize to the world for humiliating me unless I had a gun to his back the whole time. He’s absolutely right!

I do not ever expect to deal with a cheating husband. But, if I do, I will be on the first flight to a tropical beach. I will not stand around to be humiliated in public nor will I crawl in a corner and cry.

I will leave. Lay on a beach for several weeks drinking umbrella drinks and watching the waves (and the cabana boys). I will let my stupid cheating husband behind with the kids and all the chores. If I’m ever gone for awhile and come back with a killer tan and a tattoo, you’ll know what happened.

He will be very very sorry he didn’t buy me a tiara instead.

    While I am not sure about the tattoo and sandy beaches are a pain, I am amazed that Spitzer (and others) take such risks. I feel sorry for the families involved and in some way I have to feel sorry for any man who is so trapped by his own passions.

    I know YOUR man will walk the straight and narrow!

    How funny 🙂

    Helen Colwell Adams from Lancaster Online highlighted this event a bit in a recent post:

    The comments of people on her blog were really funny too – one woman went so far as to say:
    “As for the wife, shame on her. He would be DEAD if he were my husband.”

    Maybe she’d appreciate the sandy beaches and tiara proposal more if she had kids she could leave behind for him to deal with 😉

    I agree, the first thing I away say, “what do the stand there with their stupid husbands. They look stupid doing it. I would be like you, take all his money and spend it. He couldn’t talk talk to me until I was ready (if ever)
