Strong women - Shame and Scandal!
April 27, 2018 6:01pm CST
It has been happening for decades - celebrities , powerful men making headlines around the world when their uncontrolled sexual behavior is exposed. Every time another scandal hits the news , I think of the wives of these men - how do they hold up? I truly admire their mental strength Would you be able to do it? - to hold your head high and smile for the press when every sordid detail of his exploits is all over the news - day after day. Marriage for better or worse - would I be able to stand by him throughout all the shame and scandal? I don't know - would you?

I am glad my life isn't scrutinized under a microscope by the public eye like that - it would drive me batty. Along with the good, you also have to hear the bad - and although it's quite possible that not all of it is true, you may still hear it and then some. I don't know that I could just smile, be supportive and act like everything is ok - because it's not.

If it happens to an ordinary person like myself - only I, the person he is cheating with and a few other acquaintances might know, but I would hate having all my private business aired worldwide for everyone to dissect. The price of fame, I suppose.
@Kandae11 That is true. But the scandal in very prominent person is three times more than ordinary people. Much pressure is upon them all around. For like us, we need to check and balance. I think the wife will somehow know if his husband is cheating on her

The question is were the wives totally ignorant of their husbands' activities and as long as discretion was observed, went along for the position and lifestyle. Dolores Hope was married to Bob Hope for like 70 years and knew he was a serial philanderer and put up with it in exchange for social position.
