I probably didn't express myself very well there. I don't think she deserved or expected it and, yes, one should live up to ones vows. Been there too.
I just don't think any of us can even begin to conceive what that kind of life is like. Its like a movie star, sports star, or rock star. Absolutely stunning women, like runway models or Playboy Bunnies, make themselves completely available. I'd like to think of myself as a fairly moral person, but I know if I were put in those kinds of situations, no matter how well-intentioned and devoted of a husband I was, I'm sure I'd have weak moments eventually.
Not that this is an excuse or a reason why it is OK to do. It may be a very human thing, but it is always wrong no matter how you look at it. But anyone getting themselves into relationships with those kinds of guys, be it NBA, NFL, MLB, PGA, whatever, they know that these kinds of issues will eventually come into play and they will have to deal with it. If it doesn't happen, then more power to them and I tip my cap to the strength of their relationships and character. But I think the former is more common than the latter.
