An outsider cannot possibly know why another person's spouse has conducted a clandestine relationship. Plenty of betrayed spouses are attractive, talented people who go on to form new and long-lasting relationships with other attractive, talented people. They certainly never "dwindled" into victimhood. Whether or not she sticks with her husband I don't see how Helen Pennant-Rea has "dwindled" either.
