Andrei Kirilenko is the newest addition to the Brooklyn Nets, a team that has spent the off-season stacking itself with new and promising players. Kirilenko left the Minnesota Timberwolves for the Nets, but will experience a steep pay cut from $10 million last year to $3.18 million a year, New York magazine reported. Unfortunately, Kirilenko left the Timberwolves before he realized that nobody would give him a better offer. All of this is well and good, but the really interesting thing about Kirilenko has less to do with his yearly pay or which team he’s playing for and more to do with his relationship with his wife.

Raped 14-Year-Old Girl Charged With Adultery, Lashed To Death

A 14-year-old girl in Bangladesh, who was raped by her cousin, was sentenced to 101 lashes for “adultery” and died. Hena Akhter from rural Shariatpur was the fifth child of a day laborer and his wife. An older male cousin — who was forced to marry his wife because he had raped her 15 years ago — returned from working abroad a year ago and began harassing Hena on her way to and from school. Her parents complained to village elders and the cousin was told to pay $1,000. However, because the cousin was the son of Hena’s father’s older brother, Hena’s father was asked to let the matter drop. Then Hena was walking back from an outdoor toilet one winter night when her cousin allegedly grabbed her, gagged her with a cloth and raped her. The cousin’s wife discovered Hena being sexually assaulted and beat her as well.

But no, they didn’t call it “rape.” They called it “adultery.” Keep reading »

In a recent piece on The Good Men Project about the double standard regarding adultery, Tom Matlack asks, “When was the last time a woman got dragged through the mud for cheating?”

I offer a slightly different question: When was the last time a woman was exposed for cheating—and the story wasn’t crafted around a narrative of love? Keep reading »

At The Boys’ Club: He’s Still Married

Hey Doc,

I’m really clueless as to what I should do about the situation I’m in.

I was with Kayla for over one month. We had an OK time, we enjoyed each others’ company, and we both said “I love you” to each other. She was my second girlfriend, while I’m Kayla’s first boyfriend. We talked about my ex. Kayla was shocked that I was in a seven-plus-year relationship that I ended not too long ago, but she was able to handle this part of my past and we got closer. She told me that at least we were sharing, which helps to build intimacy.

Well, the bad news is that I’m actually married to my ex. Read more Keep reading »

My Husband The Sex Addict

When I mustered the courage to ask my husband of 16 years if he was having an affair, he looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, “It was just an escape. It will be over with one phone call. You and I are still going to grow old together.” I accepted this explanation. He was crying, for God’s sakes. And then there was that line about love in our retirement years. The performance was totally believable. Keep reading »
