Kate Langbroek’s passionate plea to women; “stop sleeping with married men”

Former Assistant Editor

In the wake of revelations about Barnaby Joyce‘s affair with a staff member, the Hit Network‘s Kate Langbroek has given her two cents on the broader issues.

Yesterday on Hughesy and Kate‘s national Drive show, Kate took aim at women knowingly sleeping with married men.

After reading a statement from Joyce’s wife, she warned that there was little to be gained for either party, and appealed to those women might think it’s a feminist act.

“Don’t get me wrong, I hold Barnaby to account for his own actions… but all I can do is speak on behalf of myself as a woman and to other women.

“You might think you are getting something out of it but you are not. You are getting so much pain and misery and bad juju.”

Playing devil’s advocate, Hughesy suggested that the staffer may not care because she was single.

“Not knowing someone’s wife is not an excuse,” continued Kate.

“If you want to sleep with a married man he has the choice to end that relationship and come to you unencumbered.

“People fall in love all the time and relationships are complicated but when you sleep with a married man you are a bad person. You can put whatever spin on it you want but you are a rotten person.

“Having an affair with a married man is not a feminist active. It is destructive.”

Powerful Statement

A very powerful statement from Kate. "Stop sleeping with married men." Do you agree?

Well , this just shows how insensitive Kate Langbroek is to the deeper issues surrounding people who have affairs. If she cared to do her research and consult with psychologists who have a qualified understanding of these matters, she may become a little more enlightened. Recent research suggest that the marital situation may have little to do with the reason why people have affairs, and although no one is doubting the effect it may have on a marriage’ the overall view should not be reduced to the lowest common denominators perspective of “cheating on your partner” Its just way more complex than that. Shame on you Kate for a cheap shot for ratings

Thank you Kate! I am a woman who was cheated on by her husband, he also cheated on our young children!! The on going repercussions of his affair on myself & our children is devastating & I would guarantee the life of the woman involved has not changed one bit. Trust me, I hold him accountable for his actions – but her, that woman – in her early 40’s never married, no children, no morals, no values, no understanding of what marriage & family is..no soul. I shed tears often, I am forever changed, sad, broken..I get up everyday & get on w life but I am no longer me – all because some random woman thought it might be fun to do this with my husband. My life has changed, my children’s lives & the family life they deserved has been ripped out from beneath them.. HER – she gets up to do it all again to another woman & family, she gets to walk away, no psychologist fees-NOTHING!
Thank you Kate!

Totally agree! It creates enormous destruction in a family and leaves people’s lives shattered.

Spot on Kate. I won’t comment on Joyce’s situation directly because I don’t know the details but I can speak from my personal experience and share my views. I believe the man is ultimately responsible for his own actions however what kind of woman knowingly does this to another woman? They clearly have no empathy for how they would feel if the situation was reversed. This happened in my past and it destroyed my family. The woman, who ironically was already a mother and should have known better, didn’t care about anyone but herself. She pursued my father relentlessly until my mother finally said ‘no more’ and my father went back to the other woman rather than being alone. Ruined a family but hey, at least she got what she wanted.
