The Brokeback Wives

Jim & Dina Mcgreevey

Always seemingly late in the game, The New York Times is only now focusing on straight women married to gay men. Did these reporters screen Brokeback Mountain only yesterday?

The article mentions Jim McGreevey and his wife as well as Rock Hudson’s sham of a marriage. But we thought the most interesting part was this mention about a husband and wife team who stay together solely for companionship reasons.

She has known that although she and her husband are sexually active together, his erotic desires otherwise focus almost exclusively on men. “It’s not easy, but I truly do love him,” Mrs. Cormack said.

Mr. Cormack is now involved with another married gay man, and Mrs. Cormack has had extramarital relationships.

Someone please forward a copy of this article to Katie Holmes.
