Shitty Husband Pickers, Unite!
By Jeannie O'Conor

Are you a shitty husband picker, like me? If so, take heart, and wear that badge proudly, my sister, for you are in good company!

Me: God, my husband is such an asshole. I hate him! But I am too embarrassed to get divorced, again, because everyone will think I am such a shitty husband picker.

My sister: Guess what- we are ALL shitty husband pickers! Even Mom, even Grandmom…only person exempt will be Mrs. [my son's name]. Go ahead and name someone who's NOT a SHP. Not Sandra Bullock or Bonnie Raitt or Princess Di. Nope can't.

Me: Huh. Maybe you're right.

My sister: Sometimes the mere act of marrying an überfrau can threaten a borderline case and push him into assholism, in a Newtonian reaction. And how about:

  • Hillary Clinton
  • Tina Turner
  • Jackie Kennedy
  • Ethel Kennedy
  • Mia Farrow
  • Halle Berry
  • Michele Edwards
  • Elin Woods
  • Téa Leoni
  • Silda Spitzer

And the Shitty Husband Picking Hall of Fame:

  • Nicole Brown-Simpson
  • Anne Boleyn
  • Mary Jo Buttafuoco

Ich bin ein Shitty Husband Picker.

Only person exempt will be Mrs Harry OConor
