It has been reported that Mr Dominique Strauss Kahn claimed his wife supported him because she believes he is innocent. What does he really wants us to think about him?
Here is a little French film: L'Amour est aveugle (Love is blind)
There is an excellent book by Margaret Haffernan: Willful Blindness with many examples where people chose to ignore the wrong.
Women can have investment in being with a powerful men too, ambitions of their own etc. Mr Kahn knows that or perhaps, he chose not to see it.
So what is love? Is it like: "Oh, I love this cup of tea" followed by swallowing the tea.
