Why is marriage in politics such a big deal in the US?

Disclaimer: While this thread is seemingly about politics, it's actually about the ethics in the USA.

Ok so, with the whole CIA/Prataeus thing going through the news (yeah, we heard of that. The chief of the CIA is kinda a big-ish enough deal),
I was wondering, what exactly has this to do with his capabilities to do the job? From all I heard, he was good at it and didn't really do anything wrong.

Further, the media always says how a presidential candidate is required to have a nice little (hetero) family if he even wants a chance at getting into the primaries.

I could make more examples, but I think you get the overall picture. My question here is, why is this such a big deal. For example, our current Secretary of State is living in a gay partnership, and nobody really cares.
Merkel is in her second marriage. Nobody even knows that, I had too look it up.

What's up with that? Thanks for explanations.

Because the logic goes like this, if one is faithful to his wife, he will be faithful to his country.
I dont like it and quite frankly i agree with you. He cheated on his wife. Wth does that have to do with his ability to run a mission in iran?

And it could go deeper than that. I dont know what you guys know about obamas involvement in bengazi, but from what i know obama watch those people die when he could have sent in reinforcements. Petraus was scheduled to testify about bengazi like 5 days after he resigned. So it could be that he quit to save obamas ass

Actual France president (Mr.Hollande) is the first president in France history (according to media ... ) who was not married when elected.
It seems like a big deal for a lot of people still I can't understand why ... And somewhat don't really care, till the man do the job.
So yeah : what the hype with not being married while being an official ?

Quotes of wisdom (maybe)


I'm a battlefield player, good sir. I don't play metro.

PC is no longer PC master race. It's PC mustard race, because consoles need to ketchup :'D

DICE gave so much into making commander better, but lemmings be lemmings I guess.

As a good guy that don't want to use overly glitched weapons, I'll quit using the MTAR and switch to the ACWR until it's fixed

The world needs more people like you


+1, I think we're all in agreement that more MrT3as would be an awesome thing :love:
Although if that was the case they'd use up so much of the world's awesome that there'd be none left for the rest of us! :D

yes, I know, I'm a big-ass hypocrite

That was actually on the daily show.
Him quitting has nothing to do with his ability and obligation to testify.

They went through 2 other conspiracy theories as well. It just comes down to the fact that having an affair as a married figure of popularity in the public service seems not acceptable.
Everyone is saying how his entire political carrier is at an end, even though there was talk about him being a possibly presidential candidate somewhere down the line.

They just like to stick their noses where they don't belong.. Just like all Hollywood marriages.. To the wannabe spies: Seriously, it has absolutely nothing to do with you so it's none of your fucking business.

Seems to be extra interesting to women for some reason... I actually caught my mother doing a tax check on the house at the end of our street just because she was "curious who lived there" (since she had already stalked the phone book and only found the number of an old lady yet she had seen an old man there as well)

Wtf?

If he goes off the grid for a year or two then comes back, possibly after working it out with his wife, no one will care.
I mean newt gingrich almost got the gop nomination and hes been married like 3 times.
