    It's really a shocking video knowing what we now know. She talks about honor and integrity and leadership and her own ambitions to be an ambassador. It seems she could have had an amazing future. Maybe she still can? I have this bourgeois notion of fidelity within a marriage, while maintaining the position that we aren't monogamous by nature. So there's an inherent conflict in relationships (married or not) where at least one person has an expectation that there will be loyalty, physical and mental, and there have been promises made that aren't kept. What I'm trying to say is that if you commit to monogamy, you should do your best to maintain it, and if you can't, recognize the new reality and get yourself out of the committed relationship rather than be lying and conniving and all the other hurtful behaviors. If either one of these two had been honest with themselves and the people in their worlds, they could have extracted themselves from their committed relationships and begun their own out in the open. But really, I can't say I'm sorry to see Petraeus go.
