Is it just me, or do you find it sort of ironic too that it seems no one had a problem with Pat divorcing, but all hell broke loose when Joan wanted to?

Mmmh I had never even thought about it but now that you’re mentioning it, you’re right ! I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that Pat was a woman. She was not running for office like her brothers were. The MAIN worry when Pat divorced Peter was how would the Lawford divorce affect JFK ? Like it wasn’t even about Pat… Joan was not a Kennedy by birth. The main concern in the whole affair was how would this affect Ted’s political career ? It was not even about emotions, only about appearances - as it often was in the Kennedy family. Joan deplored how Ted didn’t even say “I love you” or anything like that in order to keep her. Instead, he tried to bribe her with money, properties, etc. - saying she could have affairs and a whole other life on the side. His presidential campaign had failed in 1980 but he didn’t know if he would run later on. So I’m pretty sure that was a concern for him in the divorce. What’s more, Peter Lawford never fit into the Kennedy family. Joe Kennedy never liked him. So I guess the family was happy to get rid of him, in some way. Pat was never in the spotlight like Ted (and consequently, Joan) was. And a man’s career, in the Kennedy family, went before anything else, it seems.

Okay so I know this is only a 1970 “article” from the National Enquirer but sometimes I really wonder if Joan thought of divorcing Ted after the whole Chappaquiddick thing. I know she said no publicly but hey, she might’ve thought otherwise… Especially since she felt like you always had to follow the crowd in that family.
