When I first saw the headline on the Internet, I thought I was being “Punk’d.”
Yes, Drew Peterson is engaged. Remember him? He’s the former cop from Illinois whose wife vanished last year. He’s been in People and on Dr. Phil, two staples in my household, so I’m familiar with his case.
There are no details about his fiancee other than she’s young (23) and lives about 15 minutes away from Mr. Peterson.
Since you’ve probably been out getting those last-minute holiday gifts under the tree, let me refresh your memory. The dude has been married not once, not twice, but four times. He cheated on wife #1. He started dating wife #3 while still married to wife #2. Then wife #3 dies in the bathtub, her death recently being re-classified as a homicide. And now wife #4 has gone missing, and he’s a suspect.
If you think this gentleman would be a good catch, raise your hand. I didn’t see any up.
I have no idea whether or not Drew was involved in his wife’s disappearance, and no charges have been filed. But, he’s had been three other marriages that didn’t end well. Isn’t the best predictor of future behavior past behavior?
Perhaps I’m getting pickier as I’m getting older, but when I think about a potential mate, infidelity and disappearing spouses aren’t desirable traits.
Are women so afraid to be alone they will date and/or settle for people with questionable backgrounds? On the flip side, can people change? Could marriage #5 be the “happily ever after” for Drew Peterson and his wife-to-be?
