He was refreshingly honest - he knew that as a famous and wealthy person, there would be an endless supply of women for him anywhere the Royals traveled, and the temptation to stray from marital fidelity would be too great. So he stayed single and played the field in his younger days, while he could still enjoy that aspect of life, and waited until the end of his career to settle down, when he thought his marriage might have a fighting chance.
The Tiger Woods fiasco is a reminder to us that these athletes are not like the rest of us and have all kinds of opportunities to stray. Given Brett's comments I'm led to believe this sort of thing happens a lot.
Brett's choice to wait to get married is obviously of combination of "hey, I don't want to stray" and "hey, look at all these available women, I might have some fun for the next 20 years."
Maybe if I "owned several IT businesses" women would be flocking to me like I was Matt Kemp, but that's not a very common scenario.
Actually, I totally agree with Crispix. Professional athletes are in a position where they make huge amounts of money and spend half their life traveling, and a sizable portion of the women they meet are willing to sleep with them immediately. That's not a scenario that many of us live in.
That makes it easier for them to cheat, but not it's not night and day.
Judging from the level of intellect inherent on this site, I would guess that many of us are over 30, white collar workers in industries with plenty of attractive, single, well educated women. The opportunities are always there.
I'm 47, married 21 years and own several IT businesses. I work with many single women aged 30-40 and the opportunities are fairly numerous if one were so inclined.
