Does that mean Dr. Laura was to blame for the breakup of her marriage?

Dr. Laura has admitted that her past outlook on life, and thus some of her behaviors, were wrong.

Dr. Laura says that ***IF*** you choose a good man ***AND*** you treat him right, he will not stray. Nowhere does she excuse men for their decisions to commit adultery. However, she recognizes that if a wife isn't living by her marital vows (which are more than just "forsaking all others"), THEN a man is more likely not to live by his, either.

But if you want to believe that women have no power in their relationships, or no ability to a choose a decent man, then go ahead. It is easier to bash Dr. Laura than admit that some wives may not be treating their husbands right, or may have chosen a malignant narcissist for a husband.

I do think cheating is wrong and should not be excused. But if the refrigerator is empty, a lot of men are going to hit the drive-thru.

i find it interesting that i am getting so very many folks coming around to comment that don't have profiles- that is generally the M.O. of trolls- but hey- whatever.

the spitzers have been married for 20+ years- perhaps silda thought she had picked the right man. just because you are part of a couple doesn't mean you know absolutely everything about that autonomous other person. perhaps silda thought things were fine at home- only they know.

it wasn't silda's decision to go and solicit prostitutes. there isn't any reason for any man in a monogamous relationship to 'go hit the drive thru.' if you are in a married relationship and you aren't getting enough at home- you have a hand. there are plenty of other alternatives other than cheating on your spouse. that is a big fat male cop out- and to blame the spouse because the male libido is so overwhelming- give me a break.

if you think cheating is wrong- there shouldn't be a but.
