Left Mocks Mike Pence for Guardrails Protecting His Marriage

Maggie Gallagher explains “For the last ten hours, I’ve been fighting off liberals on my Twitter account outraged that Mike Pence tries to protect his marriage by not dining with women alone. They have this theory that it somehow disadvantages his women employees. I’m guessing in reality the women who work for him are grateful to have a boss who doesn’t hit on them. It’s not that hard to leave a door open or invite a colleague in” (National Pulse).  From Katie Pavlich: Men in general, but especially powerful men in public positions, should respect and learn from Pence’s boundaries. This doesn’t mean they have to make the same decisions about how to handle professional situations, but understanding why Pence behaves the way he does is helpful with navigation. He has enormous respect for his wife and the women he works with, which is why he chooses not to put any of them into a position that could be perceived as compromising (Townhall).  David French explains why Christian men do this (National Review).  From Mollie Hemmingway: All these people mocking Pence for the protections he puts on his behavior must not know the people I know or suffer the temptations I face. They must not read the headlines about marriages ending due to infidelity. I have far too many friends who found their inhibitions lowered by alcohol and distance from a spouse. The end result of their lapse in judgment has in some cases been the destruction of their marriage (The Federalist). A look at some of the crazy reactions from the left (IJR). From Jonah Goldberg: It’s a very strange place we’ve found ourselves in when elites say we have no right to judge adultery, but we have every right to judge couples who take steps to avoid it (Townhall).
