NL- Gingrich wanted open marriage so he could continue to cheat on his second wife with her approval. She didn’t give it. Eventually he divorced # 2 and married his mistress. Mistress (wife #3) helped Gingrich convert to be a Catholic. What a GOOD Christian he is! lol
So, it seems that one part of that juicy ABC News “bombshell” interview with Marianne Gingrich concerns one of the “big ideas” that Newt Gingrich, hive of constant innovation, had during the period of time the former House Speaker was out of office: he wanted Marianne, his second wife, to enter into an “open marriage” arrangement, so that he could continue to consort with Callista Bisek. (You know, the third wife that introduced him to Catholicism.)
ABC’s Brian Ross interviewed Gingrich about the matter:
GINGRICH: I said to him, we’ve been married a long time. And he said, yes, but you want me all to yourself. Callista doesn’t care what I do.
ROSS: What was he saying to you, do you think?
GINGRICH: He was asking to have an open marriage, and I refused.
ROSS: He wanted an open marriage.
GINGRICH: Yeah, that I accept the fact that he has somebody else in his life.
ROSS: And you said?
GINGRICH: No. No. That is not a marriage.
