Repulsive "Wifely Expectations" pact emerges in Iowa kidnap case
FEBRUARY 17--This country, as you know, is filled with the deranged. And then there's Travis Frey, a 33-year-old Iowa man who is facing charges that he tried to kidnap his own wife (not to mention a separate child pornography rap). Frey, prosecutors contend, apparently is a rather demanding guy. In fact, he actually drew up a bizarre four-page marriage document--a "Contract of Wifely Expectations"--that sought to establish guidelines for his spouse in terms of hygiene, clothing, and sexual activities. In return for fulfilling certain requirements, Frey (pictured right) offered "Good Behavior Days," or GBDs. Each GBD, Frey wrote, could be redeemed by his wife to "get out of doing the things" he requested daily. A copy of the proposed contract, which Frey's wife never signed and later provided to cops, can be found below. While we normally point out the highlights of most documents, there are so many in this demented, and very graphic, contract, we really can't do it justice. So set aside ten minutes--and prepare to be repulsed. (4 pages)
I'd say this surprised me, but I work at home.
This was today's Dr. Phil
Dr. Phil revisits the topic of what makes a good wife. Grant and Kelly first appeared on the show because Grant expected his wife to live up to his demanding standards. He wanted a cleaner house, better meals and a sexier spouse. After seven years, his constant criticism and disappointment had her ready to throw in the towel on trying to become the "perfect wife." Dr. Phil’s first talk with Grant and Kelly caused quite a stir as thousands of viewers wrote in choosing sides. How are Grant and Kelly now? Has Grant abandoned his critical ways and his expectation of having a Stepford wife? And why is he no longer wearing his wedding ring?It turns out that he's still the raging asshole he was before, actually, but you can see the clips. I specifically watched this show because of the idiot in the Smoking Gun.
He's an electrical engineer and he wants to fix his wife like a circuit board. The guy had seven cards of things she needed to do. Seven.
Divorce Court is also good for lists from spouses.
In short, if some asshole doesn't crawl across my TV screen with a list for their spouse to follow I must be watching the History Channel or HGTV.
Because the guy on Dr. Phil deserved to see his wife fucking Clive Owen while he was having his testicles shocked. His wife was crying on TV as she spoke and he was pissed that she wasn't perfect.
I mean, the guy makes Dick Cheney look sympathetic. He wanted the broom handles at 90 degrees, not 45. They didn't do that shit to my father at MCRD Parris Island in the 50's and recruits died there. He would rate her meals, A, B, or C. Sometimes, he would eat out and then come home after she cooked and he knew she was cooking. He stopped wearing his wedding ring because she wasn't perfect.
The shitty part is that she couldn't see that his behavior was cruel in the Giuliani sense, just above a wild animal. Making a woman cry is bad as is, but on TV?
So that list by the nut in Iowa is as common as a TV show.
