ITALY: Italian president Berlusconi's glamorous divorce and life-style intrigues Italians

I was just reading up on the latest on Silvio Berlusconi’s divorce. I would have thought by now there would have been all this backlash and that the very “Catholic” Italian society would have turned on him and sunk his poll numbers. But no. According to this article from Reuters I just read, “[Berlusconi’s] ¬†glamorous lifestyle remains aspirational for many Italians, while the Catholic country’s tough divorce laws have fostered a public culture more tolerant of infidelity.” Well, at least they are not hypocrites.
