NBA player's wife lets him cheat once per year

Did a search and didn't see this. Not sure if it belongs in Other. Thought it might since it falls somewhere between Mature and Sports.

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/moore/...tml?source=rss

Quote:
What would you do if your spouse offered you a free pass to be unfaithful once a year?

It's a great hypothetical, but even more interesting for Andrei Kirilenko -- because that's what his wife has done.

In this month's ESPN The Magazine, the Utah Jazz forward's wife of six years, former Russian pop star Masha Lopatova, said she would allow him to be annually unfaithful. Part of her rationale: if a person is deprived of something, he will crave it even more.

"It's the same way raising children," she told the Salt Lake Tribune. "If I tell my child, 'No pizza, no pizza, no pizza,' what does he want more than anything? Pizza."

Utah was in town Sunday night to play the Sonics, which meant Kirilenko was here, which meant the Go 2 Guy was front and center asking every question I could think of about the pros and cons of consensual infidelity.

And I'll be darned if I can come up with a con, though the unenlightened Go 2 Wife is on record as saying: "No pizza for you."

Kirilenko told the magazine he didn't plan to take his wife up on her offer, which is noble but too bad, really, for those of us who would like to live vicariously through him.

Kirilenko said this wouldn't be a hot topic in his native Russia, that it's just one of many things he and his wife have talked about to "live happily for a long, long time" (or one night a year, anyway).

Acting on temptation is one of many reasons why marriages split up, Kirilenko said, thus the reason his wife made the offer.

"Just to offer it doesn't mean something happens," he said.

Kirilenko is amused by the line of questioning, saying, "Sex sells more than anything." But it's more than that, it's a wife saying it's OK to cheat, and it happened in Salt Lake City of all places.

"I don't think they approve of this kind of thing in the Bible," I said.

"I don't think it's something for the Bible," he said, his English somewhat broken as opposed to my comprehension, which is completely broken.

"In Russia, this is not a big deal," he said. "A big deal is keeping your family. America, how you say, is a puritan country."

Kirilenko, 25, and Lopatova have a 4-year-old son, Theodore. Naturally I pictured little Teddy asking: "Where's Daddy?" on the night in question and wondering what Mommy's answer would be.

Asked if he really felt the offer would improve his marriage, Kirilenko said: "Definitely. This is an example of what works for somebody but doesn't work for everybody."

It drew all kinds of reaction in the Sonics' locker room.

"If you give a kid pizza, he might want a different kind of pizza," said Nick Collison. "It might get worse."

Collison showed the Kirilenko article to his girlfriend and "she instantly got mad at me. Her defenses came up and all of a sudden she was in a bad mood. I know not to ask for anything like that."

Ray Allen said the Kirilenkos have their own personal relationship, and he respects them for that.

"I appreciate her willingness to bend and not conform to the regular rules," he said.

Allen said his fiancé is open-minded, but he won't ask, saying: "She definitely would not want to see me with another woman."

Between smiles, a single Earl Watson said: "Whatever works for your marriage. European mentality is way different from American mentality."

If he does get married someday, he won't bring it up. "I wouldn't want to come to work with handprints all over my cheeks," Watson said.

Echoing Collison, Mikki Moore and Chris Wilcox intimated that one piece of pizza could lead to wanting the whole parlor.

The Sonics also said it's a one-way street, not wanting to make the same offer to the women in their lives.

"Hell no!" Moore said. "As soon as she gives you something, you've gotta give her something, and I ain't."
One article I read stated that Kirilenko has been kicked out of the NBA Player's Association on general principle.

dude, they're Russian
Fidelity from Russian guys is something that i've been curious to see but haven't so far.
The mentality is way different.

As Dan Patrick said: "Would you take this offer? Think carefully before you answer. It's a trick!"

It probably isn't nearly as fun to cheat when you know that she knows and you have to go home and see her.

Anyone thinking of the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme where Larry can have sex with another woman once before their 10th anniversary? I think it was 10.

I guess if it works for them, go for it. I wouldn't do it if my girlfriend offered, and I wouldn't want her to if the opposite was available.

Well that's a given. Men should have the right to do it with whomever they like, but women should always have to stay monogamous.

What's the point of being a pro athlete (or a rock star or a politician) if you don't enjoy the groupies? I think most athletes' wives understand this.

Eh? That's not what I said.

If my girlfriend gave me the option, I wouldn't take her up on it.

If others have no problem with it, good for them.

It is possible some men actually care about being in a committed relationship, and it isn't a boobie prize?
