The Freaker Of The Spouse - The Republican Clown Show Rolls On….
In a Nightline interview airing Thursday, Newt’s Ex, Marianne Gingrich, tells ABC’s Brian Ross that while she was married to Newt, he asked for her blessing in continuing his affair with Callista.
GINGRICH: I said to him, we’ve been married a long time. And he said, yes, but you want me all to yourself. Callista doesn’t care what I do.
ROSS: What was he saying to you, do you think?
GINGRICH: He was asking to have an open marriage, and I refused.
ROSS: He wanted an open marriage.
GINGRICH: Yeah, that I accept the fact that he has somebody else in his life.
ROSS: And you said?
GINGRICH: No. No. That is not a marriage.
Open marriage describes as an arrangement in which both partners are free to have sex with others. Communication and honesty — before engaging in traditional sorts of infidelity — are generally considered key.
Columnist Dan Savage called Newt out on his retroactive open marriage request.
"Technically you’re not asking your wife for an open marriage if you’ve already been fucking another woman for six years," he wrote on his blog. “You’re presenting your wife with an ultimatum. That doesn’t make you a proponent of open marriage, Newt, it makes you a CPOS (Complete Pile Of Shit ).”
