This. story. is. sick.
A man in Ottawa City, Kansas, Weldon Padgett, repeatedly raped his wife. He drugged her red-wine and had sex with her while she was unconscious.
Padgett’s wife said her memory problems began in 2006 and she eventually linked the memory lapses and blackouts to drinks, usually wine, that her husband gave her. She said she would often wake up after drinking the beverages and find evidence that she had had sex, although she didn’t remember. When she confronted her husband with her suspicions, he said he was concerned for her mental health.
Ah nice. Make your wife think she's got mental problems. Fortunately the wife was smart.
Padgett's wife pretended to drink a beverage that she suspected was tampered with and then acted like she passed out. She said her husband then had sex with her, although she had refused to have sex earlier that night.
Another kicker... the bond on this man has been increased 10K because he had the audacity to send her CHILDREN over to give her a "Mother's Day" gift. Guess what it was? A bottle of red wine. Can we say sociopath?
Now after all this you wouldn't think it could get any worse. BUT IT DOES. The online article opened a comment field.
Where gems like this surface:
It sounds to me like this uptight, hands-off, ultra-conservative may have run his name through the mud to ensure she still could have drained him of every penny.
Sounds like she was a very bitter person. If she was so unhappy in the marriage that she wanted no part of sex, they should have divorced when that lightbulb illuminated itself over her head....
Granted, he was wrong to drug her, but she was withholding marital relations. Either way, he was going to get screwed.
Shame on him for being an idiot with drugging her, if he did it. But shame on her for withholding relations and not just asking for a divorce, long before this occurred, so they might both move on.
She should be prosecuted for violating her marriage vows..
There's many, MANY more.
Is it possible to throw up and cry at the same time? Victim blaming has hit an all new low.
