Marriage Scandals — A Slippery Slope?

By October 6, 2009

Follow me on:

Headlines about marriage scandals, usually unfaithful spouses in political marriages, frequent the news these days. Warning signs were evident in some of the marriages, but some spouses were seemingly surprised by the news. A few of the marriages ended in divorce and some married couples hit by scandal are still together.

The lack of public outrage over the recent David Letterman scandal has some marriage experts concerned that individuals are getting too used to marriage scandals and that our society is on a slippery slope towards more failed marriages.

We don't think so. We think the Letterman, Ensign, Edwards, and Sanford scandals can remind people of the negative impact of stupid, selfish decisions on their lives, the lives of their spouse and children, their careers, and their families.
