I cannot fathom, why a man with pretty much everything...
A hot wife. 3 teenage daughters. A successful career.
Would choose to throw IT ALL away for sex.
And no, not the sort of sex where he was feeling lonely, desperate, and in need of a woman's touch. Not a drunken one-time thing with a co-worker while his marriage was failing.
No. Not this guy.
He, like many other men chose to PAY FOR HIS AFFAIR.
First: With actual MONEY.
Second: With the entirety of his livelihood. His marriage, his family, and his career will never be the same.
And while I watched his vague apology, it wasn't his words I was interested in.
But the look on his wife's face, as she stood dutifully by his side in the shadow of a scandal so huge that their lives will never be the same.
Where her smiles once were the foil to his sternness, she looked defeated.
A ghost of a woman filling her role as a politician's wife, looking ahead only to a life haunted by his mistakes.
He may have paid twice.
But she paid the most dearly.
