Mark Sanford Emails to Mistress Maria Belen Shapur Revealed; Jenny Sanford Kicks Him Out

by at . Comments

Jenny Sanford, the wife of embattled South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, told her husband "to leave two weeks ago," according to reports.

When she found out about his infidelity with Maria Belen Shapur, Jenny "worked immediately to first seek reconciliation through forgiveness."

At first.

Eventually, "to look my sons in the eyes and maintain my dignity, self-respect, and my basic sense of right and wrong, I asked my husband to leave."

Jenny says she asked Mark Sanford not to contact the family during their separation. She says she had no idea where he was the past week.

One can assume it didn't help when she found out he was having an affair in Argentina with his mistress after having gone off the grid for days.

Meanwhile, The State newspaper in S.C., which accosted Sanford at the Atlanta airport, thus blowing his Appalachian Trail hiking cover story and forcing him to admit his Argentine affair, has a series of emails between Sanford and his mistress.

The woman, identified as Maria Belen Shapur, refused to talk to one of the newspaper's reporters when approached at her home in Buenos Aires, but the governor's office doesn't dispute the content of the emails, which date back a year or so.

Warning: The emails after the jump are so cheesy, you may find yourself vomiting spontaneously, even if you are a loyal Days of Our Lives viewer.

Here's an excerpt of one Mark Sanford love email to Maria Belen Shapur:

"You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night's light - but hey, that would be going into sexual details..."

"While all the things above are all too true - at the same time we are in a hopelessly - or as you put it impossible - or how about combine and simply say hopelessly impossible situation of love. How in the world this lightening strike snuck up on us I am still not quite sure. As I have said to you before I certainly had a special feeling about you from the first time we met, but these feelings were contained and I genuinely enjoyed our special friendship and the comparing of all too many personal notes...

"I also suspect I feel a little vulnerable because this is ground I have never certainly never covered before - so if you have pearls of wisdom on how we figure all this out please let me know... In the meantime please sleep soundly knowing that despite the best efforts of my head my heart cries out for you, your voice, your body, the touch of your lips, the touch of your finger tips and an even deeper connection to your soul."

Ew! Unsubscribe! Come on Mark. Does a career in politics rot your brain? He and John Edwards and Eliot Spitzer need to form some kind of support group.

It's safe to say any presidential ambitions he may have had for 2012 are kaput. Below are pics of Mark with estranged wife Jenny Sanford and their four kids.

Hope Maria Belen Shapur and her magnificent body parts were worth losing this:

I thought it was VIRGINIA that was for lovers, not South Carolina! In any event, it's easy to confuse Appalachia with Argentina...they both have vast expanses of unexplored wilderness, like Sanford's soul. Here, this is a good lesson: http://www.zazzle.com/south_ca...

Please understand, I feel that love takes both partners - the man and the woman. However, I have met many women that say things like "he isn't getting any tonight", as if that is a threat, and then they are shocked when the man gets a mistress. My husband and I talk all the time. I know he can go online and get many women to be with him; therefore, I stay a part of his life so that he doesn't feel the need to look elsewhere. Mrs. Sanford told her husband to leave the house for 2 weeks, and then is surprised that he sought out another woman for companionship? If you know your man is good, then don't tell him to leave!

Infidelity invades marriages everyday and this situation is played out in the media due to Sanford's political office. People cheat on their spouses, men and women, for various reasons and it is a choice to do so. It is an act of their will. No one can blame the other spouse for infidelity, one action is not the reaction of the other. Sanford is sorry, only because he got caught, no other reasoning here, and he didn't stop seeing his mistress after his wife asked him to vacate their home to address this very issue. The Sanfords now must determine the course of their lives as married partners and as the parents of their children. They will always remain parents of their children, whether they can work through this affair remains to be seen.

I am not a man, I am a WOMAN - a HAPPILY MARRIED woman, who speaks to my husband daily about all aspects of our life together. We have regular relations and it is wonderful. I can't imagine spending time with anyone other than him. Then I see other women get married for reasons other than love, and they are surprised when things fail. Just because you are married with kids, that is no reason for you ladies to think you have your man trapped for life. Life is precious and women need to stop thinking they have the upper hand over their men. Love the men and do not take the love for granted!

A man does not have to be forced out to be with other woman...You said you always hear that wives of politicians become prima donnas and overbearing-how would you know? That statement is broad.....you can be a great, supporting, loving, and caring wife, but when a man what to cheat, he will regardless. He will find a way to do it without caring becasue at that moment all he is thinking about his hisself. Men of that caliber is selfish. They do not think about the consequences until after being caught......I feel as though if you are married and not happy, leave......most men in power think they can say and do whatever........

People should get married because they want to be together. When the love ends, it does no one any good if you dread coming home. It sure doesn't help the kids when they see two people who can't stand one another. Ladies, take time for your husbands. Don't think they want to come home and see you all homely. They don't care that you cleaned the house all day - take a shower and look nice for them! Think of ways to keep the spark alive! The men want to feel good and proud. If they are getting it at home, they will not look elsewhere!

Love Wins needs a wake up call. Men cheat. Period. They cheat, and the sooner women realize that, the less hurt they will be. They are just wired differently than women are. It doesn't matter if they are still married, or still in love with their wives, they cheat if given the opportunity. To men, it is just sex. Period. Just Sex. And they will say or do anything to have sex. Ladies, word of advise: expect it, it will happen eventually to each and every one of you. Because, after all, it is just sex.

It appears Mark was feeling love he obviously was not getting at home. You always hear that wives of politicians become prima donnas and overbearing - why would any man want to come home to that! Mrs Sanford and Kate (of 8) need to talk and figure out what changed about them that forced their husbands to go to other women. Based on the love email posted here, this guy seems to be a nice normal guy who just wanted to feel loved. A shame he had to fly to South America to find it!
