Imagine having a father who committed adultery on your mother with a famous movie star.
Must be horrible for them. The years of deceit, the lies, the guilt.
Nobody should glorify his behavior.
There is literally nothing traumatic about that. To normal people, it would be a complete non issue. You know, unless you're the sort who need a Safe Space or Crying Room or something.
You'd be fine with one of your parents cheating on the other while lying and keeping up appearances? Oh yeah, mom used to go bang dudes on the side...get real.

Fisher noted that Harrison's marriage to first wife Mary Marquardt did end in 1979, but 'for reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with me.'

we read that Ford took great care of his ex-wife as she suffered through MS, buying her a specially adapted house and paying all her medical bills:
Said Mary: "Harrison and I just grew apart. But we remained great
friends through the years. "He bought me this house and has been
incredibly supportive through my illness. We are family and he has
stuck by me through thick and thin.
"In this town, it is refreshing, if not unique. People want to hear
nasty things about people but Harrison has done all this and expected
And Ford has his regrets:
Said Ford: "Sometimes I've been a better actor than husband or father.
My greatest regret is the failure of my first marriage and the pain
that it caused. I made mistakes in my youth that I would rather not
admit to. I have changed."
Ford said he's happy he can now help Mary. "I've always tried to make
sure my family is properly provided for," he added.
In short, he's human. He was gifted with great looks and commendable great acting skills. He's used his time, treasure and talents for many good things. He had a few flings in his 30s. It's interesting to read his regrets now that he's in his 70s. Somehow I doubt in his heart of hearts that if he could set back time that he would chose to stay a monogamist, despite what he said above. I just think he would have been more mature and more discreet. I imagine that he'd also have gotten his second ex-wife to sign a prenup. His second divorce is one of the more costly ones in Hollywood history.
