She didn't run a marathon. The article didn't say anything about her run being for charity.

He got into town on Friday and dicked around for two days before showing up.

This is supposed to be romantic?

I want a wife who runs marathons for charity...

I'm sure she loved the fact that she was tired and sweaty for her re-union with her husband.

Right on time, media!

Petraeus story starting to put a dark tint on the military's reputation? Fire up the band and hand out the flags because we've got ourselves an honest to goodness hero coming home to his loving family.

Yay Military! And God bless the USA!

Eh, fark you haters. Welcome home, bud. Not really my style to do that, but it seems like it works for him and his wife, so... good times.

Dude was home for 2 day, yet still felt the need to put on his military uniform for the phot-o.. uh, reunion...

I'm sorry she said no, dude.

It mentions the marathon, too.

Yes, it mentioned a marathon. It also mentioned that she only ran the half-marathon.

They are both AW's, and subby can't read.

Dude, you're a dick. Or trolling.

As if it's somehow impossible that some military people are dicks and some are not? Or that it is possible or even appropriate to report both accurately?

Jesus. Like human interest stories are the devil. "If it bleeds it leads" is a strategy to increase ratings, not a monolithic media imperative to only report the seedy underbelly of everything at all times.

If I was away from my wife for 11 months I'd want to see her as soon as I could. Not wait a couple of days for a better photo-op.
 
2012-11-13 03:19:32 AM
She ran a half-marathon, not a marathon.

The article neglected to mention her time.

Husband sounds like a cheeseball, but I guess she's into all that kitschy crap.

Yeah, but there's another way to look at it- this is the only chance in his entire life to do something like that. And since FTA it sounded like pulling silly and over the top romantic stunts is part of their relationship... well, I don't think it was about the photo-op so much as just the fun.

But hey, I still have a little bit of my soul left, even after as long as I've been on Fark.

Hm, lessee. I could have a regular meeting with my spouse returning from overseas; or I could have a spectacular romantic meeting that he will remember the rest of his life PLUS incredible romantic sex after that spectacular meeting by waiting a day or two.

I think I'd go with the romantic thing too, with or without the photo-op.

Headline: Wife thinks husband in Afganistan
Reality: Wife thinks husband at dentist

I'll admit, it sure doesn't have the same ring to it.

He was probably farking some girl he was talking to on the Internet for two days. I was in the military, you can't fool me.

I wonder what her boyfriend thought.

I ran the Disney Wine and Dine half Saturday night in Orlando. Same thing happened there at the finish line. No tv news cameras tho. My hubby saw the reunion then saw this couple in San Antonio on tv. Said the gal in Orlando was WAY happier to see her man than the wife in SA.
