    Sorry I have no sympathy for her at all. Clouded judgement or not she was a parent also. How would she feel if her partner had done that to her being a Mother?

    She knew about Allison and spat the dummy like a petulant child when she didn't get her way. Disgusting.

    There doesn't seem to be a cemetery at St. Paul's, anyone know where she is, if I do go up for the catchup I'd like to visit her grave and give her my love and respect.

    Sorry but I respectfully disagree that she is 50% responsible for the daughters no longer having their mother. That's unfair as that's 100% GBC. When people have affairs either the affair breaks up or the marriage breaks up. They're the normal results and the ones she'd have expected. In either case the kids still get to see both parents. It is not normal for one to take the other's life. If GBC killed his wife to be with TM that is completely GBC's responsibility and not hers.

    Maybe TM had both the guilty and not guilty scenarios given to her to respond to so that the producers could use the appropriate one when it aired after the verdict.

    Well, i've certainly been in Allison's shoes - not with such a diabolical excuse for a man, but mine did have a lengthy affair with a work colleague under my nose (we worked on the same floor, so I would go downstairs to see them having coffee together).

    Do I blame the woman? no. She was looking for love, and he was obviously giving off vibes that he was available. I accept that not everyone has the same views on the sanctity of marriage. Was I hurt? damned right I was...cried for 2 years. Was our marriage in trouble....truthfully? yes. But of course I thought we could turn it around. Counselling (which he hated), holidays together, quality time.....no use. he fell in love, married her and they have been together ever since. And all is forgiven and we are quite good friends.

    Both T mcH and GBC were doing the wrong thing, but where I have MORE respect for TMcH is that she had the guts to leave the marriage and not keep stringing her husband along. Someone had a little cartoon of GBC juggling his balls....I say "what balls?". He has peanuts!!!! if that.

    Hi Aussie-expat.sg

    I agree it's somewhat of a 'credit' to TM to have been honest with her partner/family/children that she was choosing GBC full time not them.

    I think possibly the/one major difference - 'advantage' (?) - TM had was that she could financially afford to make this massive change to her's, her twin boys' and her (ex) partner's lives.

    GBC simply could not financially afford to make the change - for himself (I don't think he would worry how him leaving Allison and their three girls would be affected by his choice; seemingly TM 'manned up' and dealt with this at her end)

    GBC just couldn't financially afford to do it for himself. He'd have sought his parents' advice for sure. jmo

    Remember he met TM in selling one of her properties and it's likely his attraction to her (money/position/choices/power) began here.

    He was attracted to TM having every potential for future that he didn't have.

    At the end of the day GBC took a murderous attempt at catching up to the position TM was in (superior to him - foot loose and fancy free, week-on-week-off with the kids sorted, apartment sorted, no debt, $100K job) Most likely put poor ol' GBC to shame!

    Now look where they've both ended up

    TM : flat broke, lost her apartment, sold herself to the planet for her sordid story that her two boys will have to deal with all their lives and single-unemployed/able half-time 'mum' (maybe that will change too)

    GBC : the clink, on medication, fighting for an appeal, separated from 'Mummy and Daddy', flat broke, unemployed and not selling an international TV interview, non-residential father... the list of 'down-grades' goes on....

    Does anyone wonder if Allison and GBC's girls will apply to change their names by de poll once they're of age and choose to each of them for themselves?

    Can Allison's surname be changed by de poll posthumously?

    Marly - You had me very worried for a moment. At first I thought that you were announcing that you are leaving Websleuths, which would be an enormous loss to WSs and all your followers including this one.

    But, fortunately, I wasn't speed reading as I have to sometimes, and read the rest of your post.

    Very glad you're not leaving us.

    I notice there has been very little mention of Ian Walton lately. I know he was in court with the BCs early on in the trial. Perhaps he has gone back to Townsville. I think he is probably embarrassed about his "all will come out" speech - it all did come out, but probably not what he was expecting!

    Thankyou for this link, I had missed this article, and just was able to find the profile for the new agency and easy to see what her new name is under "my team"
    Listing bedsits for rent is way off selling elite properties in Brisbane's north, oh well, this is a good example of how actions can bite you over and over... My life value is " do unto others as you would have them do unto you" if you follow that, you can never go wrong..

    I think it is normal for those who preach in any form to take it to all levels of their life....

    You can never know what the inside of anyone else's marriage is like though. We don't know why she wasn't happy with him.

    Totally agree Cattail. Many of my friends couldn't understand why my ex chose the other woman over me....I have to tell you i'm much easier to live with...he even told me so.
    But i think that when people find each other it is often a case of someone filling a hole in you...and I couldn't fill that for my ex. He was WAY more ambitious than I was because I was more focused on family. He needed fame, his name in the papers, the community looking up to him, all that stuff. I'm not belittling that...his Dad had exactly the same need. Can't tell you how many community newspaper clipplings we were sent! I wasn't focused on making all that happen - and I realised that much further down the track in my recovery from the breakup. So we can't know what TMcH and GBC found in each other and we don't know what was missing in their lives.

    Where is his 'All will come out" speech. I have never seen him speak out. He is known to be a very sincere and caring person.I thought it was Olivia who said "the truth would come out. " And of course it has.
