South Carolina Guv's Wife -- Outta the House!

6/24/2009 6:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark SanfordThe wife of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford told her husband "to leave two weeks ago."

Jenny Sanford says when she found out about her husband's infidelity she "worked immediately to first seek reconciliation through forgiveness." At a point, however, she says "to look my sons in the eyes and maintain my dignity, self-respect, and my basic sense of right and wrong, I therefore asked my husband to leave two weeks ago."

She says she asked the Guv not to contact the family during the separation. She says she had no idea where he was the past week.

We can assume it didn't help things when she found out he was in Argentina with his mistress.

One thing we can't figure out ... if they live in the Governor's mansion, how can she make him move?

As a blue collar worker, you did not call in you will be FIRED!!!! So what is the DIFFERENCE!!! He DID NOT call in for 7 DAYS- that is the GROUNDS FOR TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT!!!! My hats off too his wife, Jenny because it takes a STRONG woman to try to love a man that DOES NOT LOVE you and OPENLY giving messages to his "lover" in Argentina that "You will ALWAYS be his soulmate" and even though he WILL "TRY"( but does not love her) and always LOVE MARIA, because she looks at the media coverage of him. Since he cannot call her, text her, or visit her, this is a way he is letting her know his affections PUBLICLY!! WHAT A SHAME TO THE CHILDREN, WIFE AND SC RESIDENTS!!! REPUBLICIANS WAKE UP!!!!

The same thing happened in Nevada. Governor Gibbons cheated on his wife, then he moved out of the Governor's mansion while she stayed. Crazy. But none of this would have happened to either governor if they just would have kept their pants on!

Only marry foreign women    

Dating or being married to an American woman is like driving a beat-up Ford Escort. If you are only used to driving a beat-up Ford Escort, then you have no idea what it feels like when you drive a Bentley or Ferrari. You need to at least test-drive a Ferrari, so you'll have a reference point on what a real car feels like.

Only marry foreign women    

Since I've been traveling overseas I have met many nice Japanese, Russian, and Spanish women. I can tell you this....the women are so much better. I want a lady that, when I get home from work, would rather kiss me than scream at me for some trivial reason like I didn't mow the lawn. I can do without the nagging thanks. To all my fellow American men... American women are easily replaceable...go Asian, or Russian, even European (except British, Italian, and French women) and you can't go wrong. Experience is the best teacher.
