Marriage

Gavin Newsome apologizes for his affair with his campagin manager's wife?! I think that this is just sick. I cannot believe that this is the man who tried to put himself in charge of our nation's marriage morals while he is stealing another man's wife and taking her for his own. This poor man was working for his wife's adulterer and has now had to resign as a result. Losing wife and job to Mayor Morality!

Today I was out driving with all the kids. I pulled out of a parking lot and was trying to get into the middle turn lane. I had plenty of time except for the fact that some punk in a Mustang decided he wanted to be ahead of me at the red light and sped up at me. I had to quickly move out of the lane so that he wouldn't hit me. Nay, so that he wouldn't hit the van full of children I was driving! I pulled around him to the other side, rolled down my window, and said, "That was completely unnecessary!" To which he answers, "Okay!" in a very sarcastic way while he pushes the buttons on his flip phone. Who is this selfish brat?! And why did his parents raise him to be so spoiled?! Did they think they did a good job because they provided him with things while letting his personality become so vile?! He had a really trendy surfer hair cut that apparently the girls his age just love, and he's out talking on his cell phone while he drives his very fast sports car in reckless abandon for any concern about the others on the road. Hey, at least he's got his priorities straight, right?

I ask myself, are these two pitiful men what the world is offering up today as examples of manliness? How sad! I hope and I pray fervently that my boys will not be like this. I am so thankful that I have such a wonderful husband and father to be an example for my children. He doesn't sit around all day watching sports, nor chase after women, nor drive a flashy car to show off his manhood. But he is a hard worker, selfless, disciplined, faithful, and more to the point today, CAREFUL on the road! I thank God for him especially as it seems he was the last good one left!!

What good points you make! I don't think it's too unusual though--we just read the Sodom and Gomorrah story in school yesterday. =) No surprise about your wonderful, Godly, and humble husband. Sure wish we could see you both again soon.
Love you--kpsing

I find it interesting that even in SF, this is news. Apparently playing the cuckold with your best friend's wife is still not ok with most people - even in SF!

I live in the SF area and it is big big news out here. Most people agree that if his political career is kept in SF, he will survive, but if he tries for something more, i.e. Govenor, this could ruin any chances he had. Which won't have me crying, since I think he is a terrible Mayor.

Something I found very interesting though...it seems that what he has done (besides being sinful and horrible) has touched a nerve with most men. While some men consider an affair with a cute young thing to be understandable, cheating with a friend's wife is against "man rules", many consider it "unforgiveable".

Living in this area is a constant trial in many ways. The depravity of thinking is mind boggling.

I hope this does end his political career personally. But that is just me.

Have a great weekend!

Yeah, I hear you about needing more Godly examples of manliness. I have never had any respect for Gavin, even when we were out in Cali. He stood in opposition to godliness.

Sorry to hear about the jerk in the car. That is frustrating.

Ah, don't know if you noticed, but he's going to Delancey Street for alcohol abuse counseling now. . .

I did see that, Marie. But posting about that too just feels like I'm kicking a man when he's already down.

Marie said...

Oh, I didn't mean to kick a man. I'm not buying that he's an alcoholic. I commented on it because it seems that here lately, when someone's evil is publicly exposed, they suddenly become alcoholics and use it as an excuse.

Duchess of Fife said...

Interesting point, Marie. I hadn't thought that it might be a cop out for him.
