I am not going to opine about whether Elin should or should not stick with her husband (although early reports are saying she’s planning to stand by him, after a revision of the prenup). Instead, I say that she should do whatever it is she has to do. If that is taking the tool of her husband’s trade to smash the window of his Cadillac Escalade, so be it. If that is combing through his phone and dialing up any suspicious numbers, go to it. If that is trying to work through it (hopefully, with help of a professional), then help yourself. If that is to handle it behind closed doors, then do that.
And I also get that no one can push anyone’s buttons like his or her spouse: intimacy can be a rage-producing machine. But adults try to use their words.
Because unlike Jessica Ashley, most of us have graduated kindergarten. I hope Ashley’s husband doesn’t rip her blankie up next time he gets pissed off.
Had Tiger been the offended party, would Jessica be saying that it’s OK for him to take his golf clubs and smash his car?
Maybe Jessica’s all for a double standard; Dr. Helen explains,
Or maybe what you are really saying is that you are for female privilege. If so, just say it out loud so everyone can know where you and your fellow sadistic “crowd” stands, not for equality between the sexes, but as a proponent of violence against men.
