In a healthy marriage, spouses share each other’s joys and take pride in one another’s accomplishments. For instance, imagine a married woman whose horse makes it all the way to the Olympics. If her marriage is a good one, you’d expect her to watch and root along with her spouse.
Alas, Ann Romney won’t be experiencing such loving togetherness. Why not? Because Mitt has made his indifference quite clear, presumably for political reasons: Dressage is Ann’s thing, and he doesn’t plan to watch it.
“I have to tell you, this is Ann’s sport,” he said. “I’m not even sure which day the sport goes on. She will get the chance to see it, I will not be watching the event…”

What a strange way to treat
His fine wife. Should she skip his convention?
