They say that love is blind and Philip Markoff’s fiancee’, Megan McAllister, is probably the most classic case of this that I’ve heard of recently. Her latest statement: “To me and my family, he is a loving and caring person, and in the eyes of the law and the Constitution, he is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The accused “Craigslist Killer” is being charged with some pretty terrifying things. Surely she was devastated when she learned about the allegations and the evidence that was found in the home that they shared. Although she has made public statements in support of Markoff, I really wonder what she is thinking about. Is she reflecting back on what she overlooked or didn’t see? Were there signs that she could have caught?
We have all heard of “ride or die” in songs and used in our dating lexicon, but does it mean that love is blind?
What would you do if someone you were dating was accused or charged with a crime? Would your first thought be to break up with them immediately? What do you think of Megan McAllister’s support of her man? Is that admirable or delusional?
