WTF?! March 19, 2010

Am I the only one tripping over all of these guys cheating on their wives?  Last night, I was tapping away on the computer with one eye on the NCAA tournament when The Mister was like…

The Mister:  did you hear about Sandra Bullock?

Me:  she preggers?

The Mister: no, her husband was cheating on her.

Me: What?!  Aww man.  She was just talking about how her work got so much better because of him.

The Mister:  I know…crazy.

Me:  maybe that’s why she didn’t thank him at the Oscars.  I remember thinking that she’s gonna regret forgetting to mention him.

The Mister:  *nodding because he’s so over talking about this now*

Me:  you dudes need to keep your penises (and yes, I said penis) in your pants!  *crossing arms all pissy-like*

The Mister:  what’d I do?

I know The Mister hasn’t done anything wrong…but mankind has!  Tiger, John Edwards, Bill Clinton…*sigh*  The list just goes on and on.  It’s very disappointing and discouraging to think that dudes…old *ss, should know better, dudes…are out there getting freaky with any old thing.  Don’t they remember standing in front of their friends and family and vowing to love only her?  Don’t they worry that their kids won’t respect them?  Why are they willing to hurt the one person who’s been by their side good, bad, or ugly?

And yes, I know that this is more upsetting to me because I’m about to get married.   But I’m sure when Sandra Bullock stood next to her husband she didn’t think, “he’s gonna cheat on me a few years down the road and I’m the luckiest lady in the world!”  She didn’t think he’d cheat…and he probably didn’t think he’d cheat.  But here they are.

It’s unnerving and unsettling and I pray (literally) that The Mister and I’s relationship will withstand the fiery darts of the enemy, that not just our love, but our commitment will carry us through.

But still…

  1. I was really saddened by this news, too. It’s true – none of these women probably gave a second thought toward the fact that they might be marrying cheaters. Otherwise, I hope they wouldn’t have gotten married! Sigh.

  2. I hate this. But I also think there are worst things than cheating. Not sure I would end a marriage over it.

      I agree and disagree. I think that every effort should be tried to save a marriage…but I don’t know if I’d ever be able to get the image of him doing the do with another chick out of my head.

    AMEN!sista…i totally feel you on this…SMH. I have to disagree with the previous comment…it is the worst when you are married to them and you commited your life to them and they cheat so why be married in the first place.I’m sorry there is no excuse for cheating and definately worth ending a marriage over it.You need trust to hold a marriage together and a worst thing could happen like your spouse creeping on the side and bringing hope HIV to his/her innocent spouse.Now what?What about your life and your kids?hmmm?

  4. I am sure you were over on Monica’s blog, lots of discussion about this. I am very troubled to hear this. I thought that he was an odd choice for Sandra to be marrying anyway, it felt like she was marrying down. The other woman timed the leakage of this news perfectly..right at the best time in Sandra Bullock’s life. It’s disgusting.

    I felt horribly for Sandra Bullock when I heard of this news. However, from my understanding when Sandra began dating Jesse James he was STILL married and his wife at the time (porn star) was preggers. I am sorry this happened to her but what you sow is what you reap. There is NO excuse for his actions and she has every right to be hurt and upset but at the same time, men cheat because women out there allow them to cheat with them and at one point, she was one of those women. I sincerely wish her the best in her journey from this point on.

  6. That breaks my heart 😦
