There is hope for you to do what? Become minister's wife? I highly doubt. Find a younger guy? Not so sure about that one either. End up in the psychiatric treatment like Iris Robinson? Possible, possible...
You say it makes a nice change for an older woman to go out with a young man but Have you noticed how YOU are being so judgemental about her? What if she doesn’t look like Miss America, does it make it worst? Are you judging her for not being pretty enough? For having a young lover? For cheating on her husband? Or is this interesting only because of the money issue?
For an older lady pulling a younger man isn't hard - younger men seem to like the idea of all that experience and they think there will be none of the commitment/weddings/babies pressure so they can just kick back and have a good time! The hard part is if either of the two get emotionally involved and it then doesn't work out.
He was the son of a friend. I guess he was recently orphaned. She decided to take him in and care for him. She did too and recently set him up in his own business with funds from her political account and money she solicited from others. That pretty much sums it up.
I was the" Minister's " Wife at one time , so to speak . Him 19 and me 35 . It ended up being a scandle . I had recently been divorced ,about one year and a half . Him , my son's best friend and a 7 month employee of my ex husband's . I was the hot mom and the hot wife of "the Boss" .It ended up being a horrible experience on my end , yet he got the thumb's up from all the "guy's" .When everything came out in thew open , I took alot of heat so to speak . Not him though . I tried to commit suicide a couple of month's later . If i had been the older man, I would have gotten the thumbs up ...
I think you are right. There is a gender issue here. She, like always, is scapegoated! Save the career of the poor minister... we just dont know what went on behind the scenes! Somehow, someway, I bet there was a neglectful man on his neglected wife!
I don't like the yellow press either, but in reality they write about what people want to hear. Now whether they are all ruining people's reputations with pleasure is debatable, some of the press does. In this specific article it seems that they just stated what happened, without giving some personal opinions on it, so I don't see it as an attempt to ruin her reputation with pleasure.
The lady is now receiving psychiatric care and her husband has temporarily stood down as NI Minister. Seems there may have been more than one younger man, but it sounds like the poor woman has emotional/psychiatric problems
True, but which came first the toy boy or the emotional/psychiatric problems? Was the teenager just a symptom? I feel sorry for them, that they have to have this played out in the world's media. All the youngsters who want to be famous should take note - it's not all fun, they report everything!!
No, I think what he was saying is that she did not flip out, because her sex life got publicly exposed, she was a nutcase even before she got with that kid. That does not necessarily mean that in order to get with that kid she had to be a nutcase.
Although a 50 years old married woman and a mother of 3 grown up kids getting with 20 year old guys is indicative of some emotional/psychiatric problem...
Btw, don't you think that the term toy-boy is a bit inappropriate for many of these cases, because at the end of the day he wasn't her toy, but it was the other way. These women often would do anything to keep this younger guys by their side and guys know that and use their desperation to manipulate them and get from them money, attention or whatever they are looking for.
Do you think so? Maybe she had a need that wasnt being forfilled in her relationship? Maybe she hadnt gone through that developmental phrase when she was younger, so he was the right boy at the right time... just a thought???
I find this fascinating to debate... not because of her but as a generalization. x
Even if her need was not fulfilled in her marriage, so what? It makes it acceptable to fucck around with a bunch of kids that could be her children? It is the selfish, me-first, I'm the only person that matters in this world, type of thinking in both men and women that is the reason of the breakdown of so many marriages today. Why do people think that every time they don't get something from their partner it is ok to go and get it somewhere else, regardless of the consequences that btw are most of the time suffered by their families.
Same with this going through developmental phase b.s. Today people find excuse for everything they do. People raping girls and coming out with excuse such as 'My mom didn't buy me a bike that I really wanted when I was 6' and getting easy punishments, because ou my God he had a tough childhood, plus as the big parole in America says 'everybody deserves a 2nd chance'. Ridiculous.
p.s. I see that you find this fascinating to debate, the last 15 comments are yours.
Great comment. I dont really have an opinion at the moment - just like to find out others perspective.
I do tend to comment in bulk because I am responding in bulk. Surprise!... I actually go offline and return later, so dont make comments as they arrive.
p.s. everyone has their reasons for being and behaving in the way that they do. The one opinion I do have is that I try not to judge... none of us know what people have experienced so we don't ultimately know their truth. We can only know our own!
Not necessarily, but there are healthy/unhealthy relationships right across the board. She is an intelligent woman who must have known what would happen if her affair was exposed, so was she emotionally in a good place when she started the affair? She has also tried to commit suicide, which suggests that she is not particularly emotionally well-balanced at this time in her life.
You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.'But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
I find it very difficult to have any sympathy for her after some of the vile, insensitive, homophobic comments she made when a gay man was beaten to death in her constituency. Of course, she used the Bible to arrive at this particular conclusion.
Apparently, gays are an abomination, but adultery and stealing money is fine
So if older men can date and marry younger girls why is it that it is now okay for older women and younger guys to date/marry?Is it just a quick flame? Or a interesting conquest? What is in it for the younger guy...
A friend was very much in love with a girl and he plans to marry her. But the girl is saying she cant just because is some months older than the guy. The guy is doing all sorts to persuade the girl but she is not...
I was born and raised in one area and then after getting married have lived most of my life far away from my siblings. It has been hard to keep the relationship going, although it really was never that close to begin...
Frank J. Sulloway in his breakout bestseller, BORN TO REBEL, indicated that one adopts attitudes and respond to the environment, familial or outside, based upon one's respective birth order. Dr. Sulloway...
