Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives

By Anne Michaud

General non-fiction, Biography & memoir | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


Published in March 2017, Why They Stay is about the lives of politically married women who have stood by their men after sex scandals. It covers Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Silda Wall Spitzer, Huma Abedin Weiner and several others. Author Helaine Olen says: "Marriage is a mysterious thing and political unions are even more so. In the engrossing and important Why They Stay Anne Michaud peers into the heart of some of the most famously troubled political marriages of the past 100 years in an attempt to understand why accomplished women ranging from Hillary Clinton to Silda Spitzer put up with men many others would have quickly kicked to the curb. Her answers will no doubt influence how we think about these scandals going forward -- not to mention the ones still to come."
