Hunter Biden leaves first wife and starts dating his brother's widow

And Joe Biden gives his blessing?

What about the wife and 3 children Hunter has left?

Is this a "damsel in distress?" Or just bonding over a shared loss?

It reminds me of the firefighters who left their families to marry the 9/11 widows they were assigned to help.

Re: Hunter Biden leaves first wife and starts dating his brother's widow

The thing that bugged me more about it was that it was reported in main stream media. It seems to me that all of them are private citizens now, right? I mean, that qualifies as front page news?

It says that Hunter's wife filed for divorce in July 2015 even though it hasn't gone through yet and they are still legally married. Two of Hunter's three children are adults. One of Beau's children is named Hunter.

That will certainly make for awkward family dinners. Cousins who are siblings? "Uncle Hunter, er, I mean, uh, Dad, pass the mashed potatoes?"

Re: Hunter Biden leaves first wife and starts dating his brother's widow

I remember hearing about the 911 Fire Fighters who left their wives for the widows. I had a difficult time believing it at the time. That was sad - really sad.

The 9/11 widow thing was very sad, Knot. I imagine being the Knight in Shining Armor is very intoxicating.

Re: Hunter Biden leaves first wife and starts dating his brother's widow

I have known a number of doctors who have left their good, stable spouses for a nurse or other employee who had a ton of personal problems. I think you are right about the Knight in Shining Armor.

Re: Hunter Biden leaves first wife and starts dating his brother's widow

I think White Knight Syndrome can be partly attributed to my ex's behaviour, that and narcissism. Some people need to be needed in order to exist.

Re: Hunter Biden leaves first wife and starts dating his brother's widow

Being needed can be a hassle - especially when it involves missing an episode of Judge Judy.

It's funny how people's brains work. ie... Knight in shining armor. Really? I wonder how many of them thought about what they did after the "You're my Hero" feeling went away?

May they pay alimony and lots of child support for years to come. Hope she was worth it.

Sad.

They go in search of their next damsel in distress! 🙄 I've been the damsel in distress (although I didn't realise it at the time) and now witnessed it 3x over!
