Megyn Kelly claimed that if she had an option, she would rather see her husband have a one-night fling with a different woman than watch him develop an emotional attachment and “sit and cry” with her.
The subject came up when the “The Megyn Kelly Show” host on SiriusXM was talking about rumors that Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, were getting a divorce soon.
The couple reportedly had a “epic argument” after hiring divorce attorneys, according to a Page Six exclusive report, which was sparked by Bündchen’s alleged discontentment with Brady’s choice to play another season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Saad added from the perspective of “evolutionary psychology,” women “get more triggered and more angry and more jealous by emotional infidelity rather than sexual infidelity.”
“It doesn’t mean that they’re happy if their man sleeps around with other women,” Saad added. “But if he develops an emotional, platonic bond with another woman … that might actually be a greater precursor of them splitting because emotional infidelity is the greatest threat to a woman’s interest.”
“I can see that,” Kelly responded. “I’m thinking about my own husband — I’d much rather he have a one-night stand with a woman than sit and cry with her.”
Since 2008, Kelly has been married to the author of three books and former cybersecurity CEO Doug Brunt. Kelly didn’t go into further detail. Three kids were born to the couple.
According to Saad, the two prime reasons for couples’ split are “financial conflict” and “infidelity.”
“Infidelity is much more of a death blow [to the relationship] if a woman cheats on a man than vice versa — not because of the patriarchy but because when a woman cheats on a guy, it triggers paternity uncertainty from an evolutionary perspective,” according to Saad.
“Whereas when a man cheats on a woman, it’s not quite the same thing.”
