Shortly following the article's publication, Riddell took to damage control, telling Forbes online "we did this because we wanted one honest account of how this happened for our sakes and for our kids sakes."
But now, it would appear that the groom is having some misgivings about the Times piece. "I think if we had an indication afterwards of the nerve it would have struck, we obviously would not have shared in any way publicly."
I get the sense that Partilla may not be as, erhm, committed to this as his bride. Recall from the original piece , Partilla "moved out of his home, reluctantly leaving his three children. But he returned only days later....then he boomeranged back and forth for six months."
He sounds like a rock.
