I'm not a feminist but I have a hard time using the word 'hero' to describe a man who leaves his wife, especially if they'd been married for that long.

Aside from his reprehensible behavior (dumping his wife of nearly 50 years) he also has questionable taste.
How does this deserve the Hero tag?

I've seen some inappropriate uses of tags at Fark and this is no different.

How about a bit more peer-review of tags beforehand.

This guy is dumping his wife - he's no hero. He's just a douche for doing that to his wife in the manner he did.

Asshole.

I feel pretty sorry for his (ex)wife. Imagine being ditched like that in the last stretch of your life after so freakin long.

And apparently, someone begs to be thrown to new lows with his use of the 'Hero' tag.

Even aside from the fact that she is NOT hot, she looks just like him. Weird. And I'm pretty open-minded, but 72 on 27 seems reeeeal creepy. And I can't help but feel bad for his wife of fifty farking years. They got married as college age kids, raised children together, and stayed together for decades after the kids were grown, and now he kicks her to the curb over some worn out-looking chick with severe daddy issues? Yeah, that'll last. And I'm sure his 40-something kids will just love their new 20-something stepmom. "Hero" my arse. His kids are going to distance themselves and side with their mom, she's going to kick him to the curb once she finds a new old man, and he's going to find himself alone and ostracized-- and he'll deserve it.

My opinion....you been with your wife this long. She ain't gonna find a new one except at the nursing home. Go have your fling. Be discrete. But why fark over your wife at that age?

Agreed. That or a warning tag for all the gold diggers out there. Not only may your husband dump your ass for a younger woman, he may even do it for someone ugly.

verbaltoxin: For all the people bagging on him for leaving his wife of 50 years, take a hint: if he left, then the marriage was probably sh*t, and nothing was going to turn it around. My grandparents have been married that long, and it sure as hell isn't a marriage worth saving. One is just trying to outlive the other at this point.


Then you leave, you don't wait until something better comes along, you just leave. You walk out the door, get a divorce and hope that something else comes along. Wasting someone's time while you wait until you find a suitable alternative for companionship is just a douche bag maneuver no matter the age.

Caeldan: HBK: 72/2 + 7 = 43.

This woman is too young for that man. The math has spoken.

Even if you applied the math a second time, still comes out to 28.5...

Also, even for British standards that's not even average.


Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus... so.... Venus has a year lasting 224.7 days, while Mars' last for 686.97 days, or roughly a 3:1 ratio. Thus, the Venutian @27 Earth years can marry a Martian @ 81 Earth years old.

One can understand that a 72 year old man would be attracted to a younger woman and may not even have the high standards that every young, virile, discriminating Farker seems to have. But the real question here is what in the bloody hell is wrong with her that he's the best she can do? And yes, I did see her pics.

/the only thing smoking hot about her would be her thighs rubbing together as she galumphs across the tennis court

theflatline: She is your typical ugly girl, that no one ever paid attention to, and then has misplaced affection for an old codger with failing eyesight who actually paid attention to her.

They are really probably in love, each getting something out of the relationship. She feels appreciated and he feels young.

I mean she is uglier than the Sea Hag from Popeye.

Dear Ladies -

You know those years between 16 and like 33, when you're hot and cute and healthy and vigorous? When you "won't settle" and have "too much to do to be tied down!" and when you break a hundred hearts a week ?

Fark you.

I don't think its about him being able to hit it... it's more to the fact that he left another woman after a bazillion years of marriage. If it was that bad, why did he decide to leave now? Not like he was waiting for the kids to be 18 or anything....

To be honest, he's kind of a douche for leaving her now - should of done it years ago if he wanted to trade in for that younger model.

But karma might equalize this out and she might trade him in next year when the publicity and fad wears off...
