This is a lot like the goings on between randy Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and his wife Veronica Lario. Back in 2007, she forced him to make a public apology over his flirting. He did so. More recently, he has demanded that she apologize to him for publicly complaining about his dalliances with young women.
Both these cases reveal that marriages are as much - if not more - about power as they are about love.
