A Marriage in the Spotlight

HUMA ABEDIN is the 34-year-old wife of Congressman Anthony Weiner. They were married last year and have no children. She is an aide to Hillary Clinton and is described as a workaholic. He is a Jew and she is a Muslim. 

Weiner’s actions were reprehensible. He should resign. At the same time, a wife who travels around the world in pursuit of her own fortunes has no right to expect that her husband will be there when she returns. Was this a marriage or a merger?

According to ABC,

Officials tell ABC’s Claire Shipman Abedin will be on a plane bound for Africa with Hillary Clinton Wednesday evening. They say she’s been working non-stop since the scandal broke, and “hasn’t missed a beat.” They also say “she is committed to her marriage,” and that “they love each other.”

The feminist works non-stop even when her marriage is in crisis. Her strength is awesome. Here we see what feminism is really about: the avoidance of pain and intimacy.

Avoidance of home and husband is more like it.

In this case, a justified aversion.

Yes. And, given their drive to dominate their work, I wonder if they are even capable of pain and intimacy. 

We live in a brave new world.
