Although I believe the reports are a bunch of crap, lets just assume that Balthazar Getty is coming back to Los Angeles in an attempt to save his marriage, or more likely cut his financial losses. Would you take him back? I think I asked this question previously in the Ashley and Cheryl Cole situation but that was a one night thing once or twice.
This however is completely different. This is a guy who not only flaunted his affair, but did so in public, with nudity, and even flew to Italy where his wife had fled to, and then continued the affair in that country.
To me if you are Rosetta and you take Balthazar back what you are saying is that you are willing to be completely trampled in your life, have no self esteem and that Balthazar is free to do this as often as he pleases. Because you know that if she takes him back he will know that he can literally get away with anything. He could move Sienna into the house at this point and have sex with her every night because he didn't do much less and the wife took him back.
I equate this to the Robin Wright Penn situation. Sean Penn can now do literally anything he wants and know that Robin will take him back. So, why would a guy stop?
On the other hand you have four kids, but who wants their kids confused about why dad has so many sisters who visit and why he always sleeps with them and is taking naked photos with them. Plus there would be arguments and the kids would look down on their mother.
When Balthazar apologized for his actions it seemed like he wanted to leave the door open a crack, but I don't know if it was for personal or financial reasons. So, can you imagine any circumstance under which you would take him back. Castration?
