So Larry King has done it again. Wife number 7 bites the dust. Is he becoming the Liz Taylor of our time. Its a very perplexing situation.
Larry King is the dichotomy of men. Most women would love to have a husband who listens to what they have to say, makes them feel important. Larry King has built an empire of a career as first a radio talk show call in host and writer and now, for the last 25 years or so, the King of the interview talk show hosts. Mainly, because he is a great listener, he doesn't try to be the star or make it about him or how much he knows or be cute funny like a lot of interviewers do today. He just asks the questions that you or I would ask and lets the guest answer and tell their story or give their thoughts and he doesn't judge them.
Sounds like the dream husband, doesn't it. My opinion, not really. Its in fact just a dream fantasy, and like most dream fantasies, it doesn't work in reality.
Most of us veteran husbands learned early in the marriage that we can only listen to gossip, complaining, whining and bitching about this and that for so long until we basically tell them to shut up without actually saying that. When that skill is acquired, an understanding is formed between the couple, in that you know and I know we can only listen to so much before we will tune you out, so don't cross that line. And don't get me wrong, it goes both ways.
It sounds cold, but it can only work that way, otherwise, at some point, the love and the initial like will wear off and then you get that phrase you often hear "irreconcilable differences".
In reading the news about Larry and his 7th wife, they cited "irreconcilable differences" as the cause for the breakup of the marriage.
It's the only explanation I can figure on.
