The Words of a Philanderess
Christina Aguilera gave an interview with People to discuss why she filed for divorce from Jordan Bratman.
“Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me.” Note the lack of agency there. Make no mistake. These are the words of a philanderess.
About Matthew Rutler, Christina’s new beau, she says, “He's the kind of person you could spend hours with on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it's daylight.”
Well that fits. Not the Yoda-like syntax, but the light it sheds on why things were so tense with Jordan. People tend to get testy when their spouses neglect them to talk on the phone all night with someone else! It’s unhealthy for your marriage and likely to make your husband unhappy. And it’s likely to make you unhappy when your unhappy husband confronts you with your behavior and its unhealthy effect on your marriage.
