5. I don't think my key would work on the door
within 1/2 hour of her finding out.

6. She'd have to be pretty damned dependent
or else completely lacking in self esteem not to.

7. Maybe threats, bribes and/or intimidation was used against Mrs. Vitter?
I don't see how or why she'd put up with this, unless she had something to lose.

24. she has plenty to lose -- the status and income of being a senator's wife
i think people are being pretty naive, i'm telling you, I'VE heard stories about vitter for years and i'm not close to his circle at all, his wife HAD to know, when she was talking about bobbiting, it was purely reaction formation, she knew THEN, lots of people did

she is not so young and pretty and she's lumbered by 4 children, she can "stand by her man" and hope to keep her status or dump him and lose it now for certain and forever

follow the $$, she has a financial motive in keeping this crappy marriage together

10. So would mine.
But she also never sends me out with a loaded gun. I never have a need to cheat or go to prostitutes because she knows how to take care of me. I love the Chris Rock riff on Clinton and Lewinsky.

11. Yea, but YOU"RE probably NOT a Senator with a lot of $$ either!
Women get used to the GOOD LIFE pretty quick and they're not willing to give it up easily!

12. There will always be over-dependent fools
who treasure their marriages so much they're willing to try to work past difficulties.

Bizarre, but true.


Imagine that Hillary Clinton woman. :crazy:

I'd change the locks first...
Then toss everything out an upstairs window... including guitar, amps, and any other electroni equipment. Cursing with every toss.

I mean, how the hell do you expect to get closure?


:p

16. But if Vitter's Wife Dumps Him, She Would No Longer Be a Senator's Wife, She'd be a Nobody
I presume that your position does not confer similar status.

17. She probably wouldn't change your diaper either before she got out the ginsu knife
and went all Lorena Bobbitt on your ass!

Isn't that what WENDY VITTER said, all those years ago, about Hillary Clinton's "private matter?"

18. Speaking as a wife, I would say that I would NOT dump my husband
out of hand.

Every marriage is different, and only the parties involved can decide what they can and can't live with.

For me, I would have to consider the entire dynamic of our relationship, and what role I may have played in what transpired. Honestly, I think the only two things that would cause me to automatically dump my husband would be physical violence against me or my family OR a sex crime against a child. Everything else I would have to play against the circumstances of the whole situation.

23. Like I said, every marriage is different.
What makes one work doesn't work in another.

I guess I'm fortunate in that my husband has never had a "wandering eye", so I've never really worried about that particular scenario.

31. Never been married myself, but I feel much as you do
visiting a prostitute would be a tough one. It would mean that he viewed a woman as a commodity, and that's a bit different than the average garden variety affair. There would also be the sheer stupidity of it, as there's a better than average chance that a prostitute could carry a nasty STD. But, as you say, it would have to be weighed against everything else. Physical violence, extreme, ongoing emotional abuse and any child abuse are the only absolute unforgivables in my book.

20. But there is the rub.
Perhaps the incrementalism is so tiny even to Wendy Vitter, she does not realize that she has compromised herself so many years ago when allowing politics to be such a large part of her life that if that act alone could not be considered prostituting oneself, than the rest is left up to judge and jury which they are now realizing is a bare-all session in front of the media. Well, at least the media is good for a few good laughs now and then. They do seem socially conflicted and socially isolated, I am sure people in New Orleans are not concerned about his personal life either but what he could still do to help out, we all want to know that. Show us the decency to the state, leave your family problems at home, I do not care about the stain of hypocrisy that you will have trouble washing away.

22. And she was such a hard ass with the Clinton comment.
Here's hoping he gave her a really nasty STD.

once things settle down and the public eye is off of them...she'll quietly leave him.

26. I preferred my mother's attitude.
She always said she would have added up all the expenses, made him match them, and then gone and had herself a helluva time on the proceeds.

Personally, I think I'd prefer he go to a pro for his fantasy life than either try to force me into it or start banging the baby sitter.

29. Maybe if prostitution were legal
and the sex workers had regular, and I do mean regular checkups. But with all the STDs out there if your husband slept with prostitutes regularly he would be endangering your health and maybe even your life. Of course who knows what the babysitter's got, but I'd rather take my chances with her than a hooker.

27. I adore my husband, but yes I would dump him
It wouldn't be because of how I feel about him. It would be because of how I feel about myself.

32. Being in a relationship seems to be
the ultimate aphrodisiac for women, so I wonder why exactly someone would need to pay to dally. It's a struggle fending off the free offers, and I'm not even married! This is why I believe that Vitter's dalliance involved nothing an unpaid girlfriend would do. (And I've had some PRETTY KINKY non-prostitute girlfriends!)
