The Truth Will Out

Now here's an interesting story which shows that James McGreevey needn't fear for company when it comes to entering into marriage fully aware of your homosexuality, and with no real intention of either staying faithful to your wife or coming clean with her and possibly ending the marriage.

To be honest, I can't help but feel contempt for people who use others as instruments of sexual camouflage; it would be one thing not to know where you really stand before entering wedlock, and it might still be pardonable as misplaced optimism to say "this is how I formerly was, but I'm done with that now", but to go into marriage with your eyes wide open about your preferences, and with every intention to betray someone who trusts you - that doesn't make you a "hero", but the worst sort of lowlife, or as they used to say once, a bounder.
