A friend sent me this. It's the marriage certificate of Robert Baker and Judyth Vary Baker. Note the date: May 2, 1963. 

That was after Judyth supposedly met and fell in love with Oswald, whom she met in late April. So, she married Baker AFTER meeting Oswald. And, right after the wedding, she supposedly went right back to her romance with Oswald in their Summer of Love. 

But, what about her honeymoon with Baker? And if there was no honeymoon, what about the honeymoon period? 

I know that people can cheat on their spouses, but how likely are they to do it in the immediate context of their wedding? Aren't emotions and commitments riding high for the person that you're marrying?   

I am reminded of the movie The Heartbreak Kid, and I am referring to the original starring Charles Grodin, not the remake starring Ben Stiller. In it, Charles Groden gets married to his longtime girlfriend, but they really didn't know each other that well. And when they drive down to Florida from New York for their honeymoon, he discovers that he really doesn't like her; that she irritates him; that she gets on his nerves. And then when they get to Florida, she incurs a severe sunburn right away, which he warned her about, and that only makes him more upset. And so he goes to the beach by himself, and there he meets Cybill Shepherd, and he falls madly in love.  

Now, that is fiction, and it's also comedy, but it actually has more credibility than Judyth's story. What if they made it that Grodin's character meets and falls in love with Shepherd but then goes through with marrying his irritating girlfriend anyway? Who would believe that? Even in the context of fiction and comedy you wouldn't believe it, never mind in real life. 

Why would Judyth marry Baker if she had just fallen madly in love with Oswald?

I said: Why would Judyth marry Baker if she had just fallen madly, passionately in love with Oswald? 

So, Judyth has begun this passionate romance with Oswald in late April, but she marries Robert Baker anyway in early May. And Robert Baker has no clue about it, not before and not after their wedding. She was never the least bit distant or aloof or emotionally unavailable to him, in person or on the phone. She hid her true feelings perfectly. It was like she was an Academy Award winning actress.  

And likewise, Oswald was in the throes of passion with Judyth but going home to Marina every evening, and he too was perfect at hiding his feelings and fooling his spouse.  Marina had no clue. He too was a great actor. 

If a story is too incredible to believe, you don't believe it. It's not hard to do. You just say: "I don't buy it." And anybody who buys Judyth's yarns is really gullible. We are talking about the outer limits of gullibility.
