Lively crowd questions whether 'Good Wife' is extinct

A reading and signing of "Why They Stay" drew a crowd of 45 people on a thunderous Tuesday evening of July 11.

The well-informed crowd seemed to believe that our culture is moving away from questions about a politician's fidelity in marriage. Several said they would be surprised to see a betrayed "Good Wife" stand up for her husband in public in the future.

They cited President Donald Trump's ascendancy -- a man who's been married three times and hasn't denied cheating on his wives. The audience also raised the point that women are running for political office vigorously now. They're taking the driver's seat.

Is it wishful thinking that we're putting this in the past: our politics of the betrayed wife putting on an ashen face to save her husband's political chances? Time will tell.
