The Sanford Scandal and the Art of Forgiveness

Friday, July 03, 2009

When South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford gave his emotional confession last week – saying he was in love with a woman in Argentina – his wife, Jenny, was noticeably absent from his side. Yesterday, though, she said that her husband’s actions were “inexcusable,” but that she is willing to forgive him. To discuss whether the Sanfords' relationship can be salvaged, The Takeaway talks to Mira Kirshenbaum, couples' therapist and author of When Good People Have Affairs: Inside the Hearts & Minds of People in Two Relationships, which is coming out this month. She's also the Clinical Director of the Chestnut Hill Institute of Boston.
