Sex and the City fans across the globe might be shocked by the claim that hubby Matthew Broderick cheated on his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, but it comes as no surprise to one expert who says there are huge parallels between this alleged betrayal and the Christie Brinkley divorce.
“The male ego is huge yet fragile: Few men can handle a woman who has more power, more money and more fame than them” says Patrick Wanis PhD, Human Behavior Expert and Celebrity Life Coach. “While Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker might have been New York’s favorite couple and a powerful one at that, Parker is the face of New York and is much more popular and influential than husband Broderick. Men who marry women who are tremendously successful often feel emasculated. Society has written the script that the man is the financial provider and the woman is supposed to be subservient, serve him and depend on him. Today, in the 21st century, the roles are changing but the effect is still destructive for the male ego and the men seek sexual conquest as a way to reclaim their power.”
“And they often try to reclaim their power by cheating with a younger woman. Christie Brinkley’s husband Peter Cook did it with an 18 year old and Shania Twain’s husband did it with a woman 22 years younger than him. And unfortunately, there are too many young women who seek the taste of power, the thrill and the fantasy of trysts with a famous, rich, powerful man.”
“Also, most Hollywood couples average 1.5 years together while Broderick and Parker succeeded with 11 years thus far, but strong personalities and pressure filming and being apart always take their toll. Parker has admitted that their marriage has had many ups and downs, describing their marriage as ‘treacherous train rides’ and wonders if Broderick regrets marrying her but clashes and unhappiness within a marriage never condone cheating, betrayal or public humiliation. Instant gratification in this case is a very selfish and hurtful act” concludes Wanis.
