Kathie Lee and Hoda were just talking about the Vows column in the New York Times. It caught the attention of several of my Facebook friends, too.
This couple were married to other people, fell in love, got divorced, and now are getting married to each other. Both couples had children. Spouses were hurt. Nothing new, just sad.
The reason that this column is gathering so much buzz is the language that the couple uses to justify their actions. They say that their relationship is a "gift." Their decision to break up their marriages was "brave." To stay in the previous marriages would have been "dishonest."
People get divorced and remarried all the time. This couple isn't particularly evil, but it is very strange that their sad affair would be confused with romance.
