Well, now I know why she had the affair with a retired general and current head of the CIA.
 
2012-11-10 11:58:33 AM  
Well, what ever you do, don't get all passive aggressive about it.

Why don't you go jogging with your wife? How much exercise does a radiologist get? What's you BMI?
 
2012-11-10 01:04:52 PM  
I halfway suspect you're writing this letter because you want specific people to read this column and deduce who is involved and what's really going on behind closed doors (without actually addressing the conflict in person). That's not ethical, either.

"I think you writing this letter to the New York TImes is unethical. So I, NYT ethicist, am going to publish it."

/I like how the guy being cheated on is the asshole.
 
2012-11-10 01:14:08 PM  
This guy should write a book called "He stuck it All In: The ejaculation of David Petraeus"
 
2012-11-10 01:32:03 PM  
It's a NYT success story. He met her in their Married CIA Director (male) wants to hook up with Hot Married Lady (female) Classifieds and not on Craigslist as the NY Post would have you believe.

Yeah, I'm the guy that wants to accuse the Director of the CIA of sleeping with my wife in person.

Nah, I think writing about it obliquely in the Times is absolutely the best way to send a message to the head of CIA.

That way when you disappear there is some evidence along with plausible deniability of who ordered the rendering.

It's only the CIA. If it were the head of the NSA, them I'd be worried.

This is really just sad that marriage has fallen so low in this country that this is considered the result of burned love. All lawyers and media bickering, no passion at all in marriage for people.

My wife and I love each other, love is not subtle or gentle, its jealous and cruel. If she cheated on me I would bide my time, find them in bed unsuspecting and make them both die a screaming death with gasoline and a axe. Thats love, true love. Pain and vindictiveness with screaming torture is nowhere to be found, thats the problem today. People just dont love and have passion like they used to.

Its heartbreaking, I weep for this species that has lost its depth of love.

The most stunning thing about this is that Chuck Klosterman has a NYT advice column, and it's fantastic.

You can deduce from my surprise about this column that, no, I haven't ventured beyond the Politics section of the New York Times in at least 6 months. But now that the election is over I can marathon the archive!

/unfaithful political figures and passive aggressive cuckolded husbands going public with "anonymous" leaks to friendly media sources? Yawn.
//but Chuck's column looks really great!
 
2012-11-10 02:20:03 PM  
"The fact that you're willing to accept your wife's infidelity for some greater political good is beyond honorable."

No. No it is not. If a man or woman will break a trust to his or her spouse, he will break a trust to anyone else. If you accept and partake in his dishonor you can not be honorable yourself.

C'mon guys. Every relationship reaches a point at which you say: so you cheated on me a little? Yeah whatever. Was it any good? There's no point making anything out of that fact, that it's not. You love her, you love the kids. What more can you ask of life? There's so much unhappiness out there to begin with.

Benghazi, clearly. The column must have been planted in the NYT months in advance because they were planning on abandoning the embassy there and needed to prepare the groundwork for Petraeus to take the fall for it.

Isn't it obvious?

It would be more persuasive if they'd work in something about Russians and an Imam or two. A UFO would be cool too.
 
2012-11-10 02:34:52 PM  
While one has to admit that the letter pretty well describes what we know of the Petraeus affair, you would have to admit that it could also be about 150 other people in Washington. At least.

I'll probably sound like a huge ass saying this but his wife looks pretty frumpy. I thought the same thing about John Edwards' wife when that mess was going on. Ladies, your husband may love you dearly but if you want him to be physically attracted to you you have to put at least some effort in. Especially if your husband happens to be extraordinarily rich/famous/powerful, there will be no end of attractive women ready to jump in bed with him.

I hear plenty of women complain that they would be more attracted to their husbands if he wasn't so fat, lazy, smelly, whatever. It's perfectly acceptable to blame the man for a lack of action in the bedroom, but turn the tables and mention that maybe the woman could be trying a little harder and you're a sexist jerk.

I take that as advice to women that if they marry their college sweetheart, they can expect to be cheated on once they reach menopause.

This is why I don't want to be married.

She was in remission when the affair began and I don't think her appearance really changed but point taken.

It goes both ways; I am friends with a couple who got married in college. The wife was always somewhat overweight and the husband was a fairly nerdy programmer, they were a very sweet couple. The last few years however she became heavily involved in various workout classes, shed the weight and became a very attractive woman. Suddenly she liked going to the beach in a bikini, or going to the bar in sexy outfits and dancing all night. She clearly liked all the attention she was getting from men. The rest of the story is fairly predictable; there was an affair, a divorce, and now she's living with the new guy.

The only moral I suppose is that you can't ever become complacent about your relationship. If you stop trying and take their commitment and affection for granted you do so at your own peril, whether you're a man or a woman.
 
2012-11-10 03:22:42 PM  
The important thing that people forget is she got multimillion dollar book deal out of the affair with another book to come containing all the sordid details while he lost his career, his reputation and any hope of those lucrative board positions. That's the kind of strategic thinking I want at the highest levels of our government not to mention what good tradecraft he used to keep the whole thing on the downlow shows he was a great match for the CIA. I'll bet he was caught by CIA security and they turned him over to the FBI just like Ames.

Par for the course among 'villagers', sad to say, and with the notable exception of Krugman the New York Times Staff typically fits pretty cozily within that descriptive set. US elites are a clannish, self-serving lot; this is probably why getting them to care about unemployment and crumbling infrastructure in Missouri is nearly impossible.

I wonder if was the NSA that noticed that someone had hacked into Patraeus' gmail account and tipped off the FBI. Intel sharing is a biatch!

Sure I can. The proper move here is divorce, then playing the field. If you aren't in an open marriage, then chasing strange is a no-no. Also, don't lie on your damn security clearance assessments; if you have an extra-marital affair going on tell them about it and, if you're important enough, they'll just slap a waiver on that puppy. Keep it secret and it'll come back to bite your ass someday.
