The Man That Find A Wife Find A Good Thing.

My grandmother always had some advice for you rather you wanted to here it or not. She once told me "don't be a door mat for any man". When I heard about what happen with 1st lady Sanford I thought about what my granny said so many years ago.
Time after time we’ve seen the wives of politicians stand by their men as their husbands mount teary eyed, scripted apologies for their philandering ways. Well Jenny Sanford, Governor Mark Sanford’s wife, ain’t having it. When Governor Sanford gave his speech on Wednesday begging for forgiveness for having a long term affair with a woman in Argentina and disappearing on everyone for a week, he was all alone. There was no dutiful wife by his side and with a statement she released to the media on Friday, made it clear she had no intentions of so easily giving her forgiveness:

I believe wholeheartedly in the sanctity, dignity and importance of the institution of marriage. I believe that has been consistently reflected in my actions. When I found out about my husband’s infidelity I worked immediately to first seek reconciliation through forgiveness, and then to work diligently to repair our marriage. We reached a point where I felt it was important to look my sons in the eyes and maintain my dignity, self-respect, and my basic sense of right and wrong. I therefore asked my husband to leave two weeks ago.

This trial separation was agreed to with the goal of ultimately strengthening our marriage. During this short separation it was agreed that Mark would not contact us. I kept this separation quiet out of respect of his public office and reputation, and in hopes of keeping our children from just this type of public exposure. Because of this separation, I did not know where he was in the past week.

I believe enduring love is primarily a commitment and an act of will, and for a marriage to be successful, that commitment must be reciprocal. I believe Mark has earned a chance to resurrect our marriage.

Psalm 127 states that sons are a gift from the Lord and children a reward from Him. I will continue to pour my energy into raising our sons to be honorable young men. I remain willing to forgive Mark completely for his indiscretions and to welcome him back, in time, if he continues to work toward reconciliation with a true spirit of humility and repentance.

Ouch. Those are strong words.

I remain willing to forgive Mark completely for his indiscretions and to welcome him back, in time, if he continues to work toward reconciliation with a true spirit of humility and repentance. Its clear she missed the Tammy Wynette school of how to be a politicians wife and I ain’t mad at her. Hopful she is setting the example for other wives of cheating men on how it should be done.

  1. When I read her statements regarding his affair and her feelings toward it, I was proud of her for not going the denial route and 'I love him and will forgive him' route. I like the fact that she basically said in no uncertain terms "he will kiss my tail and when I feel it's enough, I'll give him a chance".

  2. I am so awe-struck at his TOTAL disregard for his wife and children! I say, let him leave and then the other woman will see exactly how it feels to old news. I applaud her courage and truthfulness! I knew when I saw that press conference that he was not sorry for the calamity he has caused in the lives of his family! Did he stop to think of how his wife would feel by airing out his dirty laundry for all to comment and publish on??? He's a cad and I'm glad that he only has a little time in office left so that he can go back under the rock that he crawled out from!

  3. The man was given a chance to reflect on his indiscretions and work towards repairing his marriage and family. Instead, he blows off his responsibilities in favour of some last minute tail. His actions show what his priorities were and I am so glad that his wife didn't play the 'dutiful and loving wife' while he did his public penance.

  4. Ann, your grandmother was a wise woman. So is Jenny Sanford. She has self esteem enough to kick him out and set conditions about their marriage continuing. She is smart enough to realize that taking the Tammy Wynette route makes her look weak and disrespected to her sons and sends a bad message to those boys. Good for her.

  5. There is one thing in this that I have not heard yet. Why did Mark Sanford cheat? The media only sees the affect not the cause. For a man to be married and say that his soul mate is someone else means that something was wrong in his marriage. Severely wrong. We all want to see in black and white but do you know if there was a reason that Mark Sanford cheated? Does it matter to you? Or do you only see that is was wrong? Remember you can go to hell for telling a lie right before God comes back too.
