Other than the old chestnut that Elizabeth Edwards has continuously played (her cancer), what responsibility does Elizabeth herself acknowledge and take for John Edwards tossing her and her children under the bus, getting a mistress and fathering a love child which pretty much severed his previous ties and connections with Elizabeth Edwards?

Is there any story here Larry King other than Elizabeth Edwards playing the sympathy card?

Elizabeth you are a beautiful human being. I have been through a lot of what you have. The pain in insurmountable to those of us that have been in this position. There is no reason to defend him. You are beautiful. When you leave this world you will leave a legacy of integrity and respect.. This other woman, I am sorry to say, and your husband will be remembered for nothing good. I must say this, for our moral lives do determine the legacy we leave to others on this earth..

I would love to see you stop defending him.. He never deserved you. To me you are a real woman and not a worthless one such as the one he has been involved with. I admire you so much.. Stand up for YOU.... Your name will always be remembered to others with love. Most of all to your children as one of morality and love and honesty... What a legacy to leave... Bless you dear one..... xxx Sheila

Elizabeth Edwards. YES, you should divorce your so call husband. Once a betrayal, theres no trust in one another. No matter how hard you try, this was already a negative situation on Johns behalf. These
men who think with theredick below, instead of there heart. NO, you did not do anything wrong. We all go thru obticles and sometimes you have to sit back and let destiny take its course. Your a very strong women. You have your dignity, you have respect for yourself, never look back. There is gift to every loss. It's time for you to move-on with your beautiful children. I want GOD to keep you alive for many years to come. To accomplish every wishgranted for you before the end is near. God bless you.

The only reason a woman is able to justify an affair is because the husband having the affair, invalidates the spouse and makes her so insignificant to the mistess. The spouse usually devalues the wife so much and manages to make the mistress hate the wife. I am a woman and I feel that women who are married to men who have cheated are in such denial over how "wonderful" their relationships were with their husbands. If that were the case, they wouldn't be cheating and that's not necessarily the fault of the wife, but certainly the marriage can't be wonderful, if he's out there cheating. I always wonder how this other woman came about and ruined their marriage. If you're husband is cheating on you and got caught, chances are he cheated on you before and didn't get caught. Therefore, the only reason why the woman that was cheating with your husband "ruined your marriage" is because she got caught with him. The moment your husband goes out and sleeps with another woman, getting caught or not, he's devalued you and your marriage and he's abandoned you and your family. And HE has ruined your marriage and your family. In my opinion, the mistress is only another person caught up in the mess that the married couple create for themselves and then bring other people into.

Please Elzabeth don't justify or defend your husband what he has done is indefencible. He acted arogantly, callously and without the least regard for you or your children. What goes around comes around and the woman who helped break up your marriage will tire of him and move on to hurt someone else leaving him ruined and depleted. You just don't want him back ever. Let forgiveness come from God just let him know that he is out of your life for good and wish him well. Kharma will come to pass it is the natural response to good and evil.

If you have to work so hard on a relationship, it isn't working. When love flows, it flows effortlessly. If the relatioship had worked before, he probably wouldn't have had the relationship out of wedlock. It's high time you let this go and look forward to a new relationship. I wish you well.

Janice, you have a lot to learn about long term marriage and relationships. Every marriage has ups and downs. Every person has weak and strong moments. No doubt John made a huge mistake and is completely to blame for his actions but it could not be more clear this skank set out to get him, sleep with him the first night (within an hour!) went on to threaten him with disclosure, got herself pregnant, and made a sex tape for insurance. Yeah, he was part of it but it takes two.

How many women do you know would do those things to another woman in a long term marriage with young children and terminal cancer? This skank is a doozy, and a psycho.

Ivanka, how young are you? 30 year marriages are work, no matter how much love and devotion. You'll learn.

Right on Elizabeth – it was more about your husband than you. Every woman that has experienced what she has needs to hear that and feels uplifted by her spirit. Thank you.
