Yeah, exactly.

I'm not supposed to feel disgusted when a man cheats on his wife - his very ill wife?

I suggest you keep it.

There are some organs you can donate (or parts ) while still alive,
your heart is not one.

As for Liz and the kids. I am sure this is not news to them.

Perhaps a 'brain' or 'consciousness' donation to the blood thirsty hounds that have pursued this to this point would be of more benefit.

Our European cousins and the French in particular know how to deal with these rather boring stories.

Right. This isn't like the Spitzer story. The article says his family has known since 2006. Still, it's too bad to see yet another politician go down like this.

Do you feel pleasure when he makes love to her?

Why are you putting yourself into their relationship?

Why does it bother you so much that other people care?

What's wrong with that?

Here is a man who has a wife with cancer, and he cheats on her? Doesn't that come across as incredibly selfish to you?
As a woman, I feel let down by men. I've heard its common for husbands to cheat on their wives who have cancer. All this year, there have been stories of men cheating (Spitzer, Lanza). It makes you wonder if men are capable of keeping their pants zipped and thinking with the head on their shoudlers.

Well, that's quite a stretch to make it a general thing about men only because there are some that get media attention for various reasons.

I have tremendous sympathy for all parties involved.


But, lets get a reality check here

and not paint our own little story of when events happened and when people became aware of them, and how they feel, all based on own own projections and maybe even our own relationships, past and present.

I am not. I was hoping this wasn't true. As I said, I am seriously annoyed that a man with an ill wife has done something so selfish. What is wrong to having normal reaction to that? I'm sorry if I am sensitive, but I am sure there are plenty of people are upset now. Sorry for some Americans not being like the French and other Europeans

By your own writing you are projecting yourself into all these relationships?
and making it personal, now you wonder if men are capable?


A life lesson, I learned is that my romantic relationships have worked much better when I focused on two people only, myself and my girlfriend.

I can't speak for what Edwards did or be accountable for it.
I want to be accountable for my own behavior and am willing to answer for it.

Although apparently she did not know that he went to visit this woman last week. I can't imagine finding out in the media is really pleasant.

You never really know what's going on in other people's marriages - and it probably isn't any of your business anyway. But I still feel bad, mostly for the kids, because they will have to live with the comments and whatever the longer this lingers in the public eye. And kids never quite process things the same way as adults do. So even if the family knew about it, the aftermath of it becoming public is nasty for all of them.

Maybe you are the exception, but a lot of people are affected by other's behavior. It's the point of being part of the human race - everyone is connected, and with the media and Internet around, more get affected by other people's behavior. Since you claim you only focus on yourself and girlfriend, congratulations.

As for wondering of all men are capable of cheating on their wives, I can't think of a woman who doesn't think that way.

A woman who thinks all men cheat probably isn't married.
