“Why I Sleep With Your Husband”

Showcasing the human capacity for rationalization.

Affairs not of state

Affairs not of state

As for the man’s wife, Trisha feels she’s actually helping her.

“I respect his wife and what they have together,” Trisha explains. “I see my affair with her husband as a sort of service. She is no longer responsible for his sexual pleasure. As a result of having found a suitable outlet, he is better able to focus on his duties and responsibilities as her mate.”

You will forgive me for questioning the sincerely of this woman’s altruism.

But it gets even more jawdropping:

“I hope he doesn’t leave her for me,” she says. “That would be absurd. Affairs should never become monogamous relationships. How can you ever trust someone who has so clearly demonstrated such a lack of conscience, such a talent with lying and stealing? It’s not a trick question: you can’t. A foundation of lies – even if they belong to both of you – is no foundation at all.”


Personally, I find it unsurprising that such brutal realism is coupled to such transparent rationalisation.

After all, it was all Tarkin’s fault. The man was a psychopath and megalomaniac. I never thought he’d actually go through with it.

Some of these men and women need to showcase the human capacity for having their butt kicked.

Semi related, some Hollywood men are called stupid for not marrying their hot sig-other:


But if the progressives have been saying for 30-some years that marriage is just a piece of paper, why is marriage is so important now for homosexuals?

“Cool and uber-hip” Hollywood homosexuals want to get married, and the “cool and uber-hip” heteros don’t.

I’ve never believed it was about marraige per se. It’s about wrenching a formal statement from society that your relationship has the same blessing as a heterosexual marriage.
