IF THAT’S TRUE, WAS HE REALLY CHEATING? Jenny Sanford Exclusive: Husband Refused to Be Faithful in Wedding Vows. “South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford recalls how she made the ‘leap of faith’ to marry husband Gov. Mark Sanford even though the groom refused to promise to be faithful, insisting that the clause be removed from their wedding vows.”
UPDATE: Okay, I remember going to a wedding back in the ’70s where a couple read vows they’d written themselves, making clear that they weren’t sexually exclusive. And yet, not too many years later, she was royally unhappy with his philandering. Was that unfair?
ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader John Richardson emails: “Did you notice that Jenny Sanford’s former boss at Lazard Freres was Steven Rattner. As in Steven Rattner, Obama’s former Car Czar. What an interesting coincidence.” It’s a small world among the political elite.
