Wife: "I have forgiven him"

ALTHOUGH her husband cheated on her and "married" another woman behind her back, she has forgiven him.

Madam Frances Pang Yoke Khoon, 34, even wrote a letter to help him plead for leniency.

The one-page letter was tendered to the court as part of his mitigation.

In it, she said that her husband, Raymond Wee Kian Seng, had broken the law in an act of folly and that he had "nothing to gain" from the whole incident.

Madam Pang wrote: "Sadly, things turned out this way. I am also partly to be blamed.

"...a happy relationship takes two parties to build.

Likewise, a ruined relationship takes two parties to destroy."

Blames herself

Madam Pang married Wee on Dec 9, 2004. She said she blames herself for not agreeing to a divorce.

She said: "Before everything (went) so wrong, Raymond did request for a divorce but twice I rejected him as I felt that the issue between us has not gone to the (stage) of divorce yet."

Madam Pang added that her husband was a good man and she knew that it was his fault for having an affair.

But she said that instead of insisting on a divorce, he had given her time to think about it.

"Thinking back, if I (had) agreed to his request (for a) divorce, probably things will not turn out this way," Madam Pang said.

"...Most importantly, I have forgiven him."

i have a different point of view about this

i feel this 'affair' should be allowed to play out, say another 3 years, maybe even 10. it will be better if theres kids, one on each side of the boat. hopefully things turn times become bad, all three start tussling with each other.

this is the only way all three will see themselves in clearer light (not to mention its good ref for desperate single females out there). currently any bystanders intending to break up the 'party' out of goodwill will only be met with utmost resistance because its human nature to be defensive and they will carry on this thing, all the more feeling distinguished from public opinion, in fact all three might even feel public dis-approval inadvertently exonerated their actions - they are proud they are in love..unlike many others who arent .....

All cheating men deserve to be punished heavily.

They should appreciate their wives for forgiving them for the disrespect, betrayal and humiliation of their adultery.

The gal also is as though she very ugly looking ro desperate or nobody wants. I think she deserve a better man than this guy who did nothing but conned her out of everything.

She needs to open up her eyes and re-think properly!

Siao ley!

He's a cheat and a 'cheapo'. He couldn't even pay for his wedding dinner and his 'new' stupid wife still stand up for him. I feel sorry for her parents.

LOL, the three deserve each other. Had he really wanted to marry his mistress, he should have been honest to tell her his marital status and told her to wait for him to get a divorce.

So what if he were a good man? He had an affair and didn't tell his wife the truth about him needing to marry desperately, yet, his foolish wife forgave him because she felt she was partly to be blamed for stalling on their divorce!
