Anthony Weiner Anthony Weiner, 48, resigned in disgrace from Congress in 2011 for exposing himself to women on Twitter. In a digital era that makes explicit flirting easy, the nature of cheating might need to be redefined.
This week, two years later, a gossip website revealed texts he allegedly shared with a 22-year-old woman after he had left Congress. Weiner’s behavior has made him this issue’s unwitting poster boy.
But if it did happen to you, how on earth would you deal with it? Because these are virtual relationships, it is hard to tell if you dealing with an online affair or your very own sexting scandal. With an online affair, this attempt usually leads to the search for greater privacy and secrecy surrounding their mobile or computer usage.
The spouse may use the tablet only in a secluded corner of a locked study, the spouse may change the password, or cloak all his or her online activities in secrecy.
Weiner’s repeated behaviors might be a sign of a sexual addiction, which might be why his wife is staying by his side. He left Congress in disgrace after being pressured to step down due to a sexting scandal in 2011.
