Cheaters cheat, it's what they do.

Modern technology is wonderful and no doubt, but it can also be the bane of many a life. This story reminds me of Bonfire of the Vanities. I mean, ooops.
From today's Daily Mail.

"A text message sent to the wrong woman has put paid to a reconciliation between Shane Warne and his former wife.

The Australian cricketing legend is said to have composed a message telling a lover that "the back door is open" - then accidentally sent it to Simone Warne.

The couple divorced over a year ago but had been working hard to repair their relationship after Warne promised to end his repeated infidelity.But according to Simone, mother of his three children Brooke, ten, Jackson, eight, and Summer, five, the chances are now zero.

Warne, 38, who captains Hampshire, was relaxing at his home near Southampton when he tapped into his mobile phone: "Hey beautiful, I'm just talking to my kids, the back door's open."

Seconds later the message appeared on Simone's mobile in Melbourne. She replied saying: "You loser, you sent the message to the wrong person."

In an interview with Australia's New Idea magazine, 37-year-old Simone said: "I'm devastated. But it was the wake-up call I needed. I'd been very suspicious for some time that he was up to his old tricks.

"It broke my heart all over again, so it's over for ever now."

In 2000, Warne was stripped of the vice-captaincy of Australia when details emerged that he had been pursuing a young nurse with a series of phone calls.

Just three years later, in 2003, a married stripper came forward to claim that the pair had been involved in a three month affair together.

It was in the same year, just before the cricket World Cup, that Warne was found guilty of taking a banned substance and suspended from cricket for a year.

In 2005, whilst the bowler was preparing to tour England ahead of the Ashes, it was revealed that the star had embarked on an affair during the final stages of his marriage.

It is also claimed that he had bombarded a young secretary with text messages in June that year.

A young student then also claimed the father of three had stripped naked in front of her and begged her for sex when they met at a London hotel prior to the Ashes.

Just a year later, a tabloid newspaper published pictures of Warne in his underpants with two 25-year-old models and details of explicit text messages sent by the star."

Oh dear, once a horny old dog always a horny old dog I guess. But I would like to have seen his face when he realised his mistake. Or maybe he doesn't give a rat's arse. But why would he be trying to get back together with a woman who divorced him only to cheat on her again?
There are lots of philandering types who can't do monogomy-they claim-but is seems a pity they don't realise this before they get married.
Why do you think people cheat anyway? Is it simply because they can? Why would someone who cheats regularly want to get married in the first place? Why not just stay single and sleep around unfettered by any kind of responsibility, emotional or otherwise. Surely the whole point of getting married it to say 'I have made a commitment to you.' Why bother if what you're really saying is 'I've sorta made a commitment to you, at least until the next hot totty comes my way.'
I mean really, why bother?

I've sorta made a commitment to you kind of fits in with the Seven Year Hitch proposed [tee hee!] by German politician, Gabriele Pauli. Not that whatshisname would last even that long.

eeek, the Pope's gonna freak. I liked this line though-
"Perhaps unsurprisingly, Ms Pauli, 50, has been divorced twice.'

I wonder what the perks are for a re-sign?

I agree. Marriage is a big step and before people do it they should realise that. There should be short term options like a 7 year pernership contract. I always thought if I finally did tie the knot it would be until I went to the big divorce court in the sky.

You'd have to be a very strong woman with cast iron self esteem to live with a cheater. It's not even the physical cheating that would bother me; for some men sex is like having fast food, a current need satisfied, with no emotional input. It's the lying and subterfuge that goes with it - you'd never really know that person wholly as there is always that bit they hold back. However, it works for some women, they're happy with such a child-man,who is akin to a dog on permanent heat - even if the testostorone wins over the logic and willpower ever time. Some women seem to thrive on the drama and permanent forgiving!

Jesus, wouldn't that get very wearing after a while?
I rather live alone than live with someone I couldn't trust. People fear living along, but really there's a lot to be said for it, and if the option was to live with a serial cheater...well bring on the solitude.

"Shortly after announciong her candidacy, Ms Pauli caused a stir by posing for magazine pictures as a dominatrix wearing long latex gloves."

Somehow I don't think the pope needs to worry.

I think a lot of it's down to insecurity and needing to prove worth to themselves. That's why it happens over and over.

Life can be complicated enough with 1 woman though, can't it?

So he was at home with the kids and was going to have sex with another woman? Great parenting!

Medbh... (a) he may have been talking to his kids on the phone, they could have been with their mother in Australia; (b) he may not have been going to have sex with another woman. Who can say for sure, on the facts. Although it is a certainty he was using his dick to send the text message.

Holy peelfree marmalade, your 'flexible' typing is better than my digit based typing. A true talent Conan, you must be proud.
Proud and suspiciously limber.

"the back door is open"?!?

I don't get it either. I have no time for messing around, i.e. no respect for people who do it ( no time to do it either :-) ) People I've seen who do it seem to make a habit of it. The wives believe them all the time. we might scorn them, but hey, I don't want to walk in those shoes.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

Me neither. I don't even scorn them. I just wonder why in the world they don't run the fuckers over.

Finn, I imagine it's a cricket thing, you know, sticky wickets and all that?
