QUOTE........Think about this sad fact; EVERYTHING YOU SAY TO YOUR WIFE OR DO IN THE PRESENCE OF YOUR WIFE even in the most intimate moments MAY BE USED AGAINST YOU IN COURT........
Yes this is true. Additionally note that in many or most areas spouses cannot be called as witnesses against the other spouse who is a defendant of some sort. This is called SPOUSAL PRIVELGE.
Yet in family court a remarkably unreliable witness with huge conflicts of interests (especially if female) is the norm. And things that person insisted you do for them are later held against the other person.
I recall reading a story in Alec Baldwin's book where the wife pleaded with her husband to deal with a guy who kept bothering her at a restaurant. He did and there were words. But the wife was happy that the other guy was gone. Come the divorce and suddenly this event became an example of the man's out of control temper.
Notice how he alleges that Basinger "demanded" Baldwin "go after" this guy who was "bothering" her. I believe through my own experience dealing with a man similar to Baldwin (in psychological behavior - definitely not intelligence level - which is not saying much for either party), I can surmise what exactly took place on this fateful night. Basinger and Baldwin were quite probably enjoying an evening out, and a fan wanted Basinger's attention. basinger quite probably would have signed an outograph or posed for a picture to appease the fan, but Baldwin would have no part of this. How dare anyone speak to "his" woman, no matter that she was and is in the public eye? So he "chose" to stand up to this man and get "mouthy". We have yet to hear Basinger's side to this issue. And quite probably never will, since she is a lady in all ways and would much rather protect the child and "move on". Oink Stan..............soooooooooooooooooooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyy
