This is definitely a :wtf: moment...

What planet is this woman on? :crazy: There are so many things that come to mind, I can't even begin to put them all down in this post. But two that on are the top of my list are: 1) If you have to give permission as to whether your husband can see his mistress or not, then you probably haven't realized that you are his wife, not his mother. 2) Mrs. Sanford, have some self-respect and kick the idiot to the curb. Why in the hell would you want this man if he's obviously shown a love for someone else? Remember the saying: If you love something set it free...if it comes back, it's yours or just republican deadbeat. :crazy:

She's already said he wasn't the person she thought he was, so move on. What is the deal? He obviously isn't interested in making the marriage work and even if he does put on the pretense of trying, it's obvious he's in love with someone else. The cat is out of the bag so pretending you're a happy family values couple isn't working anymore. :shrug:

This reminds me of the book I just read about plantation owers who fell in love with their slaves. The woman at the "big house" usually knew what was going on but tried so hard to live in denial.


SULLIVANS ISLAND South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford said Friday her husband repeatedly asked permission to visit his lover in the months after she discovered his affair.

I said absolutely not. Its one thing to forgive adultery; its another thing to condone it.

Jenny Sanford spoke to The Associated Press during a 20-minute interview in the living room at the coastal home where she sought refuge with their four sons. They were her first extended comments on the affair.

She said when her husband, Gov. Mark Sanford, inexplicably disappeared last week, she hoped he was hiking the Appalachian Trail, as his staff told those inquiring about his absence. That he had dared to go to Argentina to see the other woman stunned her.

He was told in no uncertain terms not to see her, she said in a strong, steady voice.

I was hoping he was on the Appalachian Trail. But I was not worried about his safety. I was hoping he was doing some real soul searching somewhere and was devastated to find out it was Argentina. Its tragic.

The Sanfords separated about two weeks ago. She said her husband told the family he wanted some time away to work on writing a book and clear his head.

I had every hope he was not going to see her, the first lady said.

You would think that a father who didnt have contact with his children, if he wanted those children, he would toe the line a little bit.
