Why more women are letting their husbands cheat

Count me out of this “fascinating trend.”

Via NY Post: Thrashing out the details of their new marriage contract with online relationship coach Suzie Johnson, the wealthy couple who have been wed for 12 years leave their hourlong Skype session feeling satisfied. The husband agrees they can have a fifth child — while the wife consents to an infidelity clause allowing him to cheat with other women on a strictly annual basis.
“They agreed to a weekend amnesty, where the guy can do what he wants for just one weekend a year,” recalls Johnson, who runs the Dallas, Texas-based goasksuzie.com. “In return, she gets the bigger family she craved.”
It’s increasingly common in her practice as a growing number of women agree to “widen their monogamy boundaries” and embrace a marriage of convenience, where it’s just the husband who strays rather than an open marriage where both sides cheat.
It’s a fascinating trend that came into the spotlight this week with the death of 75-year-old Linda Jones, superstar Welsh singer Tom Jones’ long-suffering wife, who put up with his legendary philandering for 59 years.

Well-known public figures in similar situations include, most famously, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, as well as Masha Lopatova, spouse of former NBA player Andrei Kirilenko. The mother of four admitted in 2006 that she sets the 6-foot-9 Russian-born athlete “free” once a year so he can sow his wild oats.
Citing 2013 study research that shows more than 50 percent of marriages survive infidelity, Johnson explains: “Fifteen years ago, having an affair would be a deal-breaker, but people now realize that it’s not the end of the world. It’s tough in the initial stages, but many see it as an opportunity to make a fresh deal. The more invested you are in your marriage — whether because of love, lifestyle, finances, children or a combination of those things — the more likely you are to make compromises [such as allowing the husband to cheat] to anchor the commitment.”

Rather than taking the open-marriage route popular in Europe, in America, it’s usually a case of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” where the wife turns a blind eye to the man’s peccadilloes. Another option, as psychotherapist Joe Kort asserts, is the “eyes wide open” approach that involves a written contract full of rules.
“For example, the woman might agree that the man can attend BDSM play parties once a month or have oral sex — not penetrative sex — once a week, so long as he has blood tests every three months,” says Kort, of Detroit, who often advises clients in mixed-orientation marriage — with one straight spouse and one who’s gay.
Pittsburgh-based former HR executive Sophie, 61, who asked that her last name be withheld to protect her privacy, fits into that category. When her physician husband admitted to a same-sex fling during a business trip in 2006, she remained by his side. “He said it was a mistake, and he was confused by his sexuality,” Sophie tells The Post.
Then, two years ago, he dropped the bombshell that he now considered himself gay and was actively seeking other partners. “When it first happened, I thought I was going to lose my mind,” admits Sophie, who last had sex with her husband in the fall. “But, with help from Joe [Kort], we’ve figured out our arrangement.”
The couple, who have no kids, recently bought an apartment in New York City to serve as the husband’s love nest. Other times, Sophie visits the condo when she wants to catch a Broadway show.
So what made her decide to stand by her man? “We’re still very much in love and we have a rich history together,” says Sophie, who has been married for 33 years. “My parents are elderly, and I don’t see any point in telling them and hurting them by getting divorced.”
Other factors include the duo’s comfortable lifestyle in the Pennsylvania countryside and their devotion to their two dogs. But it’s been a difficult road, especially after Sophie confided in her sister and a rigidly Christian friend. “They are very judgmental and think there is only room for two people in a marriage,” she says. “But, as Joe counsels me, you get to write your own story, and nobody can tell us how to live our lives.”

Count me as one of those horrible “very judgmental” “rigidly Christian” people. If NY Post has any journalistic integrity, the paper would keep track of Masha Lopatova & Andrei Kirilenko, and “Sophie” and her “gay” husband who keeps a “love-nest”. I bet very few of these half-open marriages-of-convenience will last.

I have to say that other than his choice of Hillary for a spouse, old Nooky Boy Bill Clinton does have good taste in babes. On the other hand, those lovelies are probably just political groupies.

I like my honor and dignity. So, I’m keeping my honor and dignity. I’ll pass on the risk potential for STD’s and a crime of jealousy — many, many spousal murders are rooted in infidelity and jealousy. Nevertheless, …who on Earth in their right mind would ever want a slut for a spouse? Regardless, that’s the protocols of zion in full swing. Read the protocols. Today’s social conditions reflect the protocols. The solution? Make Earth useless to the trouble makers. Boycott everything Israel, the synagogue of Satan. In the US, this means boycotting the banks. Take no loans and the… Read more »

OR: What is it you are saying here? Barron Trump isn’t vaccine-injured and if he were that’s the “bright side?”
<On the bright side, they attacked the Trump family with their vaccines, caused their youngest child great harm

No if, and’s, butt’s, or or’s; what I’m saying is: Donald Trump’s child was vaccine injured by Israel’s NWO (genocidal mania, agenda 21, criminal genocide in the light of a hemp economy and zero interest currency), intentionally — just as Robert De Niro’s child was vaccine injured by Israel, just as countless other children were and are injured by Israel everyday in their quest for “dominance”. Israel is viscous, attacking babies in mothers wombs, utterly depraved. I doubt Trump will let Israel have a pass on that. Lo, he will bring them to justice. So yes, there is a silver… Read more »

I think you are incorrect about his son Barron:

At any rate, I agree with you that Israel is complicit in many things that are aimed against us. However, freemasonry is inextricably involved (derived from kabbalah).
Trump is weak on his stance on Israel and is rumored to be illuminati but certainly better than the other tools.
Pray for him and us that he is the real deal.

Temptation is always there. So are lustful fantasies, which are sinful enough. Cheating though is really bad because it hurts your partner, complicates life, and ruins the trust you had. The old sayings are true: “The grass is always greener.” “Be careful what you wish for.” That sweet object of your runaway imagination is often an emotional train wreck, full of excess baggage. So love God, love your spouse, strive for the simple life, and keep it in your pants.

The heck with that.

I am left almost expressionless, this kind of “arrangement” is bound to leave wounded and broken people in it’s wake. I am sorry, if I had a homosexual husband who wanted to maintain his homosexual dalliances . . . who is it that is going to stick with him thru HIV and all the travesties it brings with it??? Sorry, but it would not be me, I would see an attorney pull out every cent I was entitled to and get as far away from that miserable piece of work as is earthly possible. The lady who wants to share… Read more »

Despite this being supposedly “okay” by being allowed, think of what feelings and other things it’ll still inspire in response.comment image

Maybe they are afraid that if they kick the worthless POS out of the house, they won’t be able to afford Ogoomacare.
Just a thought.

I had a landlady over 20 years ago who was a sweet lady. But her daughter was a lesbian. She got married and left the house. Six months later, I heard her parking the car in the garage for the fifth or sixth day straight. “I thought you were married?” I asked. “It didn’t work out,” she replied. Time went on, I moved out. The daughter made her mother—then aged 78—sell the house so she, the daughter, could have a bigger house up in Westchester. Last I checked, the erstwhile man-hater married a second time. A girlfriend I dated for… Read more »

These people that put living opulently over living without betrayal are sick. And those that ignore the fact their gay partner is using them, needs some counseling.
For me, once the betrayal happens and the trust is broken, I am done, over, kaput. One of us will go out that door.
