I just went and read the New Yorker article. What a waste of time. The author wrote the article based on a few photos snapped of Affleck. Someone could snap a photo of a senator blinking in Congress and say he was sleeping on the job, but it wouldn't make it true. You can't say anything about anyone just based on a few photos.

I think you are a bit obsessed with celebrities. OK, maybe I should say really obsessed.

I don't know what you're basing that statement on....

I believe Affleck is the only celebrity I've mentioned, because I've followed his & JG's story for forever. 

I've also mentioned Kate Spade, because IMO she was married to an MLCer, before her untimely death.

Two celebs in obvious MLC is germane to this site.  I'm not really obsessed with anyone actually.

Then you should know this is how Affleck acts. He has done the OW thing, the drink, the rehab before. The SNL presenter had been his mistress for years on end. Garner couldn't care less about it.

He either gets another woman or strippers when he wants to end/sabotage a relationship.

The tattoo is a bit MLC, but the rest of his behaviour is a pattern he has had for decades.

No MLCer that I know of goes to rehab because their spouse take them to. Good luck trying to take a MLCer to rehab or therapy.

I've also mentioned Kate Spade, because IMO she was married to an MLCer, before her untimely death.

Kate Spade had issues of her own.

No doubt.  She had depression, like I do.

But I see many parallels between her story, and my own.  And it makes me nuts when people try to attach everything to depression. 

I've taken Zoloft for 9 years.  But I was medicated, and thoughts of suicide were *never* there.

Enter: my horrendous MLC'er.  And turning our family upside-down was the straw that broke this camel's back.

I don't see MLC in her husband, but, who knows.

Still, only the person who took its own life is responsible for it. I understand that things/people can drive us to suicide - my maternal grandfather suffered from mental illness and took his life and my paternal aunt also suffered from mental illness and tried to take her life.

But, regardless of anything else, it were them who did it. My grandfather never seek help, a man of his time hardly would. My paternal aunt had a psychiatrist that only seemed to do more damage.

I also had a maternal great-aunt, grandmother's younger sister, who was schizophrenic. Mental illness runs in both sides of my family.

Depression does cause a lot of problems/is responsible for lots of things. Like MLC. Or suicide. Does a non-depressed person takes its own life? I really don't know, but I would say no.

Sure, MLC will make matters worst. But you are here.

The whole 90210 thing? Those were actors and actresses playing parts.

You don't get it, Goner.

I believed I was acting out the role of "Kelly Taylor" then - NOT Jennie Garth.

That enabled me to believe what I was doing was normal, and acceptable.  (Because if the exact same thing happened to them....how wrong could it really be?)

I am fully aware that it was twisted thinking.  I was not in a good place, at all.

No fault divorce likely to be ushered into UK law.......

Whilst I think the unreasonable behaviour clause should be removed - I still see nothing wrong with the two year separation before mutual divorce.  Perhaps 5 years without consent is too long but even so... it's very worrying.

This explains a lot.  When Boris started saying random, bizarre comments in interviews and then resigned from his various posts left right and centre I must admit I wondered if he was possibly MLC. 

Apparently he has been linked with 3 women including a much younger blonde!!

Nope, knew him a bit at Oxford - serially unfaithful narcissist man child if very entertaining dinner guest. Long history of screwing over friends, lovers, colleagues and political allies...not a man to even buy a used car from tbh.
