"It's an awful thing to find out but it's not the end of the world." …
This is a quote from the Lynne Hunt, wife of a famous television/radio star in Australia after it was revealed during the week that her husband of 34 years, Rex Hunt had been cheating on her for more than 15 years with three different hookers.
We all love a celebrity scandal but celebrities like us are only human. Rex Hunt like millions of men around the world thought his infidelity would remain a secret he said, "I thought that by paying money for sexual favors that I could buy anonymity, that I could buy confidentiality..".
Infidelity has so many faces and effects people in many different ways. In this instance, due to various circumstances Lynne Hunt didn't think the complete violation of trust was that big a deal. She was quoted as saying, "I wasn't happy about it. I was really, really upset about it [but] I have had a lot worse things happen in my life and this pales into insignificance - [like] losing family members". Most people that have been victims of infidelity will agree that it is the breach of trust which is harder to get over.
I know some of you reading this would be thinking to yourselves that Lynne is a spineless woman because cheating is cheating, a vow is a vow, trust is trust and cheating is cheating but maybe Lynne is right, it's not the end of the world...This may be true but the cost of her husbands infidelity will probably carry through the rest of her life, thats where the real damage is in this tale of indefility.
I tell you what Lynne hunt is a much stronger person then many of us...or is she simply a weak lady lacking the confidence to kick her man to the kerb where he needs to be?
