I cannot believe what I am reading. Has the clock been turned back 40 years, when my own mother verbally laid into the woman in a public place on the street, the woman who went on to become my step mother? With both in their eighties now, they are pleasant to each other when they are at family get togethers.
This won't be meaningful to overseas people but Australians can't help but know about former Federal Government Minister Barnaby Joyce, his former staffer who became his lover and their child. He has left his wife Natalie.
Natalie has gone down the age old road of blaming 'the other woman', and not her husband. There was a danger I would show you minimal media snips and getting it out of context. I am putting larger snips. You be the judge.
Dearest woman. Your husband is never seduced by an evil, sex hungry power seeking woman. It is your husband's choice and his decision. Having said that, my god the male urges can be strong, but the sign of a good man is that he is able to control these lustful urges. (I am the last person to lecture anyone about that), but the point here is about blame. I've never blamed anyone else but myself for my indiscretions and nor has R for his.
From The Age.
After months of silence, Natalie Joyce, the estranged wife of the former deputy prime minister, has decided it's time to speak up about her "two-year" ordeal after her husband's affair and the birth of Sebastian.
