The Spy That Divorced Me: the Very High Divorce Rates of Spies


Sun, Mar 18th, 2012 21:00 by capnasty NEWS

Spies: they're always portrayed as the poster child of smarts, hotness and skill -- especially when it comes to seducing the opposite sex.

Reportedly, however, marrying a spy only brings an inevitable divorce: the spy can't explain to the spouse what they do for a living. And when the spouse finds secret bank accounts or discovers the spy's unusual activities, it raises the suspicion of affairs.

The Fredericksburg woman divorcing her husband laid out all the messy details, including the most secret of them all. Her husband, she wrote in now-sealed court documents, is a covert operations officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. His CIA job, she said, poisoned their five-year-old marriage.

"[He] used me and our daughter . . . to run cover for his undercover operations . . . I never felt safe, never knew who people were or why they were interested in us or why they were photographing us," wrote the woman, who is in her 30s, in December. "As a result of [his] different assignments I never had a good support network of people I could trust or rely on to help out." And, she claimed, her spy-husband had little interest in household chores. "[He] never so much as washed or folded a load of laundry, swept or mopped one floor, or changed one dirty diaper."
