Have to watch those biographers. The same thing happened to Jack Welsh at GE. Boffing with a younger woman.
Petraeus married his wife right after West Point. She was the daughter of the Superintendant of the Academy. Hmmm. Not bad for assignments and growth opportunity. Not exactly Nicole Kidman. After 38 years she didn't do her best to continue to appeal to him obviously.
Stunningly bad judgement.
