We had planned to write a post about inappropriate questions people innocently ask men and women who are not in relationships, e.g. “Why don’t you have anyone?” That tops our silly question list and we will get back to it.
On Monday, a politician, Ms. Abedin’s husband, Anthony Weiner, admitted to inappropriate behavior.
We hope that distant acquaintances aren’t trying to reach out her to find out more dirt. This happened to Yvonne years ago when she was humiliated by a boyfriend. He married another woman and didn’t get around to telling her. As news of the marriage spread, people Yvonne hadn’t heard from in years began to call as if they’d by chance ran across her phone number. She appreciated the friends who stayed close to her without a word or very few. “I knew there were real friends and my family standing close by, ready to catch me if I fell.”
We hope that instead of an email, friends and associates and even so-called friends will reach out to her with kind, supportive words on paper.
We hope that they are not offering suggestions as to what she should do about him or their marriage, unless she's asked.
And we hope they are not calling him names and sharing them with her. He’s her husband, with all due respect.
