Adultery is wrong.  It’s wrong if the couple is separated.  It’s wrong if there is or is not a law against it.  It’s wrong if there are or are not children.  It’s wrong on multiple levels.

  • It’s a breaking of a promise, a vow.
  • It’s sharing something that was meant to be specifically for the promised individual.
  • It violates a trust.
  • It can destroy a family.

In the case of Gov. Sanford, his position should not exempt him from the law, just as it should not have emboldened him to break it.  For in this case, Gov. Mark Sanford did break the law.

When the story first broke yesterday about Gov. Sanford of South Carolina being “out of pocket”1 I figured that this was possibly a case of someone that was trying to get away from the pressures of work and wanted to keep his location to himself as much as possible.

However, when we heard today that his wife and children had no idea where he had gone, my mind wondered if there was a chance that he was having an affair.  Turns out that unfortunately my hunch was right.

  1. They originally claimed that he was hiking the Appalachian Trail, but then they found out that he was actually in South America. []
