The institution of marriage as an essential building block of civil society is under cultural assault. No, I’m not talking about adultery, divorce rates nor same sex marriage. I’m talking about the marriage of George and Kellyanne Conway.
Assaulting marriage, any marriage, is expressly contrary to God’s will as described in Hebrews 13:4, which declares that marriage is to be upheld in honor among us all. So how do we rightly respond when a particular marriage is under public assault?
In brief, the president of the United States assaulted the husband of one his top aides on Twitter. President Trump has accused George Conway of being “VERY jealous of his wife’s success,” “a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell.”
Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before departing for Lima, Ohio on Wednesday, President Trump claimed he didn’t really know Mr. Conway then added, “He’s a wack job, there’s no question about it, but I really don’t know him. I think he’s doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful wife. Kellyanne is a wonderful woman, and I call him Mr. Kellyanne,” then reiterating, “The fact is that he’s doing a tremendous disservice to a wife and family. She’s a wonderful woman.”
Kellyanne Conway is the wife of George Conway. They have four children. She is also an aide to President Donald Trump. He is her boss and he is publicly denigrating her husband and attacking their marriage. Why? Because Mr. Conway is publicly calling the President’s mental fitness into question.
In interviews with The New York Times and The Washington Post on Tuesday, George Conway said he uses Twitter as an outlet for his frustrations so he doesn’t scream at his wife about all of it at home.
Grievances in marriage are real and sometimes we all take the frustrations of work home with us. No one involved in all this has clean hands. But who does the denigration of their marriage serve and how is the destruction of this one small society, the Conway family, serve the greater good?
