When the Eliot Spitzer scandal hit six years ago it was a real shock.  During the press conference his wife was right by his side.  Many wondered how she could "stand by her man" after the revelations of him cheating with high priced hookers.  The Spitzer's filed for divorce on Tuesday, ending their 26 year marriage.  Eliot has recently been seen in public with his much younger girlfriend.  None of us will really know what went on with Spitzer and his wife after the scandal broke.  It's not really our business.  They did appear to want to keep their family together, but somethings just can't be overcome.  I will say his ex-wife Silda was extremely dignified in the face of this heartbreak and humiliation.  For that she should have our respect and well wishes.
