Robin Wright Penn: The erstwhile Princess Buttercup deserves a medal, or perhaps some sort of battlefield promotion, for staying married to Sean Penn as long as she has (thirteen years and counting, if they reconcile again). The couple filed for divorce last month for the third time in as many years; their relationship, which produced two children, has been dogged by rumors that Sean has had flings with Jewel, Kate Moss, Natalie Portman and Sienna Miller. And at this year's Oscars, when he won his second Best Actor trophy for Milk, Sean neglected to thank Robin for, you know, not dumping his ass. That must take super-human patience, but it appears even Robin's supply has run out. Should You Tell A Friend Her Husband Is Cheating?
Elizabeth Edwards: Elizabeth and John Edwards had one of the sweetest love stories in politics—law-school sweethearts, their marriage survived the death of a beloved son and a run for president. They celebrated their anniversary every year with dinner at Wendy's, and she still wore the $11 ring he bought her in 1977, even after he became a wealthy personal-injury lawyer.

If there is such a thing as karma, John will be reborn as an intestinal parasite. Why Powerful Men Cheat

Jerry Hall: Mick Jagger is a dog. An iconic rock hero dog, but still a dog. Which is why no one should have been surprised when, despite being in a fifteen-year relationship with Jerry Hall that had produced four children, Mick knocked up a Brazilian model and then swindled Jerry out of half his fortune by successfully claiming that their Bali wedding was not legal. Jerry went on to star in the VH1 reality series Kept, on which she looked for a boytoy, while Mick kept on collecting knickers and breaking hearts. You have to admire his tenacity, but we'd rather have a cocktail with her.
