No, there are several ways to handle it. But none of them include violence or acting like wimp.
The woman was dying (actually days from dead). But your view is to sh&t on her grave and memory even though she is gone.
Not at all, I simply said that he shouldn't be responsible for the arrangements of someone that sh&t on him.
Obviously she was (as we all are) a flawed person.
But not all of us cheat.
Her father too was flawed, but we see the love he has for his wife (suffering herself).
Sure, that is his daughter. Far cry from a husband. And the wife didn't f**k over her father, she f**ked over her husband.
Why does he need to know about the affair?
He had no idea. It was his daughter that told him.
Probably would have approved it, but that is another discussion all together.
LMFAO. Ok, now I can ignore what you write out of the sheer ridiculousness of what you just said.
The point of my OP and the movie, is we really know almost nothing about the family at all. For all we know Clooney may have beat her or not have had sex with her for 8 years and emotionally vacuous (extremes yes, but we know absolutely nothing), and are just given little vignettes and insights.
Still no excuse for cheating. And in any case, you are just assuming. If that were the case in the movie, it would have came out, and the daughter would have had a talk with him about it. Obviously with his flat affect, he was not an abuser.
But you go ahead and make assumptions to make your justifications for cheating.
We are left to make our own decision as to what MAY have happened and that is what I took from the film.
What happened is she cheated on her husband. Pure and simple.
Also listen to the scene where he screams and vents at her comatose body when he finds out about the affair.
I did. I loved that part
About the only part in the movie that didn't have me wanting to get up and leave.
I get it, no affair is acceptable.
Uh huh, thats why you just tried to justify her affair with assumptions of neglect and physical violence
That was not the point why I posted at all.
Based on who you are, and reading your defense of alot of cheaters on this board, I'm not the only one that knows why you really posted this here.
Your hate is palpable.
Oh no, how will I ever sleep at night knowing someone of your character decided to take that swipe at me
