Cynthia's Dinner Invitation To Cheating Lennon And Ono

JOHN LENNON's first wife CYNTHIA was so shocked when she caught her husband cheating on her with YOKO ONO, she invited the lovers out to dinner.

The late BEATLE's teenage sweetheart, who became his secret wife for six years at the height of Beatlesmania in the 1960s, had returned home early from a holiday in Greece when she encountered her husband and Ono, dressed in bath towels, in her conservatory.

She recalls, "I was so devastated... I felt as though I didn't even exist in this situation because they were so tightly knit. It was so obvious that they'd been up all night.

"I said the most stupid thing that I've ever said and I've regretted it ever since.

"I'd come back from holiday; I'd come from Greece to Rome and planned dinner in London - I thought that was a great idea. I came back with friends, got in, saw what was going on and I said, 'Do you fancy going out? We've had breakfast in Greece and lunch in Rome, do you fancy coming out for dinner in London?'

"Yoko didn't look at me and John said, 'No thanks.'"

I wish Cyn realized that her question to John and Yoko was clasic!I realize that under the circumstances a wife feels like a fool regardless of a very clever remark, in my opinion.I speak from experiance when I say this. No matter how wrong, sneaky, mean and slimey a cheating husband IS, unfortunately the wife feels twice as bad than the cheating spouse.At least that is how a trusting wife feels. Although peoplle who learn of the infidelity should think the cheater a snake in the grass. Often they feel the man did what he HAD to do.This is NOT the case when a WIFE is caught cheating on her husband. In those cases most people think the wife is a slut, ungrateful,heartless bitch.John Lennon was emotionaly retarted. He couldn't think of a propper way to tell his wife he wanted a divorce. He was unhappy in the relationship with Cyn before he allowed Yoko to shove herself down his throat.That is the problem. Cyn's self esteem plumaged. If a spouse tells their spouse as soon as they know they are ready to disolve the relationship they should be decent enough to be honest.Then they can give their spouse an opportunity to prepare for the future. Telling a spouse as soon as posible can avoid years wasted for the cheater and the spouse who has to begin life again, alone! The younger the rejected party is the better.With youth there is optimisim and an easier time adjusting to new , good possabilities in life.I still think the remark Cyn made was perfect!
