    The thing is they decided together to get a divorce months ago it came public on the ninth, He did not say anything to anyone for years and just came public on the 17th about the child. Maria did not notice and the offender did not care to tell because she was married as well. People need to stop acting all shocked the infidelity had nothing to do with their separation they had been struggling for years. Its just now everything has come out because they are over. He revealed everything to his family and to the press. pretty much at the same time. And with all this he should be ashamed and the cheatress should know better THEY DO FEEL ASHAMED BECAUSE EVERYONE IN THE WORLD KNOWS AND EVERYONE IS HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE! It can’t be any harder than that.We all have opinions of what we think. But the truth of the matter is millions of people cheat everyday every minute on someone or about something. We think of self first not the people we love, not the Lord and not the World, Self! That is why this happens. In some cases its Just inevitable. 25 years is a very long time to be married to one person and still like them let alone love them.
