“Anger is a dangerous thing,” says Dr. Gregory Jantz, PhD.,author of numerous books including Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Your Anger and Moving Beyond Depression. “It can build up inside someone and eat away at the stable elements of their lives without them even knowing it.”
Refering to the case of Maria Shriver, former first lady of the state of California who discovered her husband had a child while being married to her, Jantz says, “she needs to choose a careful course in which she can balance expressing that anger and releasing it, but she must do so in a way that doesn’t have a negative impact on her life. It’s difficult for women in Shriver’s situation to prevent allowing an event like this to cast a pall over the rest of their lives and any future romantic relationships they may have.”
After 25 years of marriage, another couple taste the bitter moment of separation and smell divorce. “ My advice to Shriver is to cling to her inner strength and her resolve to move forward, and not to punish any future romantic partners for Schwarzenegger’s crimes. There is life beyond infidelity, and she needs to remember that and keep hope alive in her heart,” concluded Dr. Jantz.
