How Was Newt Gingrich Not Castrated When Asking Wife For “Open Marriage”?
The news today is not shocking, given everything else that we have come to know about Newt Gingrich over the decades. But it still is most disturbing to fully understand that Newt Gingrich wanted to have both a mistress and a wife. He even went so far as to address the topic of an ‘open marriage’ to his second wife, who he was married to at the time he was bedding his soon-to-be third wife. How Newt Gingrich was not castrated on the spot is the only mystery to this story.
How Callista Gingrich was such an empty vessel, and so in need of a man that she could not see the improper and morally bankrupt conservative she was committing adultery with is amazing. She now stands with starched looking hair and smiles admiringly at her husband while on the campaign trial.
Today everyone is getting a better look at who Newt and Callista Gingrich really are. I am most confident that the image being unveiled will not endear them to American voters. After all, character still matters in politics.
There is also the total disconnect between Gingrich’s rejection of same-sex marriage while he waddles around the nation seeking the GOP nomination. The former Speaker of the House unreasonably is seeking marriage to be only between a man and woman. (Notice he does not advocate ONE man and a woman.) The irony of all this as it plays out on the national stage can not be over-looked.
There is a part of me that would very much enjoy the opportunity to have Gingrich as the Republican presidential nominee. It would be a pleasure to make Gingrich’s every waking hour of the campaign one long lesson in what the term ‘sanctity of marriage’ should mean for a social conservative.
In her most provocative comments, the ex-Mrs. Gingrich said Newt sought an “open marriage” arrangement so he could have a mistress and a wife.
She said when Gingrich admitted to a six-year affair with a Congressional aide, he asked her if she would share him with the other woman, Callista, who is now married to Gingrich.
“And I just stared at him and he said, ‘Callista doesn’t care what I do,’” Marianne Gingrich told ABC News. “He wanted an open marriage and I refused.”
Marianne described her “shock” at Gingrich’s behavior, including how she says she learned he conducted his affair with Callista “in my bedroom in our apartment in Washington.”
“He always called me at night,” she recalled, “and always ended with ‘I love you.’ Well, she was listening.”
She said Newt moved for the divorce just months after she had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, with her then-husband present.
“He also was advised by the doctor when I was sitting there that I was not to be under stress. He knew,” she said.
Gingrich divorced his first wife, Jackie, as she was being treated for cancer. His relationship with Marianne began while he was still married to Jackie but in divorce proceedings, Marianne said.
How soon before Callista is thrown onto the heap of women used and discarded by Newt Gingrich?
