South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford says her husband's affair with an Argentine woman broke a trust that he must earn back _ first from his family, then his constituents. She says she is willing to forgive his "inexcusable" behavior and give him another chance, but that reconciliation takes time and it won't be easy. Her statement Thursday was the first since Gov. Mark Sanford told The Associated Press earlier in the week that his mistress, Maria Belen Chapur, is his soul mate but he is trying to fall back in love with his wife of 20 years. "Mark has stated that his intent and determination is to save our marriage, and to make amends to the people of South Carolina. I hope he can make good on those intentions," Jenny Sanford said. She said her husband showed a lack of judgment in his actions and "it is up to the people and elected officials of South Carolina to decide whether they will give Mark another chance as well." However, she said, "his far more egregious offenses were committed against God, the institutions of marriage and family, our boys and me." -MEG KINNARD Associated Press
