First of all I need a hall pass for inconsistency. I missed Monday, Monday AND Hump Day Miscellany. I blame the election! Or maybe just a lack of inspiration.
Here’s another hall pass question. If you only had 1 hall pass to hand out and you had the following 2 cases who would get it?
1). A man who cheats on his wife and then repents and works it out so that he can honor his wedding vows ever thereafter and keep his family whole.
2). A man who dumps his wife of 14 years who has waited for 6 years for him to come home, all the while raising their children, who then dumps aforementioned wife for a rich trophy wife.
I’m particularly interested in you fidelity purists. Does being a POW and the passage of time really get you off the hook? If so, how do you maintain your stance that any act of infidelity robs a man of all integrity and credibility? And if your position is “they just stayed married for the political advantage” be very careful – how much do you enjoy having people tell you why you do anything when they don’t live inside your head and your heart? How often is anyone correct when they say “you just did that because….” as they tear into you?
