Sorry CNN I never once thought this was a love story. Story of dependency and exploitation yes.
As you may recalll MK in 1996 was a married woman of four when she had sex with her 13 year old student named Vili. Iirc her sentence was suspended. She was then caught having sex in her car. She then went to prison for seven years and she was pregnant with his child. In the second half of 90s this was a big story. Now in 2005 she got out. They married. It would appear during his teen years through early 20s he was totally devoted to her. Which to me screams dependence on her emotionally.
Now he would be 34 (maybe 33 but good chance 34) they are divorcing which to me is ironic since this would have been her age when this crap started.
I am sorry but to me this is about time. Yes he married her when he was an adult I though cannot help but wonder if the emotional ties he developed at 13 were still there. Love? No. Abuse and exploitation yes. I still cannot grasp why he waited all those years while she was in prison. Having a child with her never seemed reason enough. I can only think there was a dependency that formed.
I just hope he is finally free of her. She sexually abused him and created a dependency on her (at least the dependency is my only theory).
I always felt sorry for her four children she had when this started. I would think her kids probably vacillate from loving her to hating her with each moment.
His parents I imagine its been 21 years of rage against her. If I was his father I cannot picture myself not being in a state of rage and hatred for her.
I also doubt if the genders were reversed CNN would ever refer to this as a love story.
