Would You Stay With Your Spouse If He Pulled a Sambora?

Bon Jovi guitarist and father, Richie Sambora was arrested Tuesday night in Laguna Hills for driving drunk while his ten-year-old daughter, Ava was a passenger in the car.

According to People:

The Bon Jovi guitarist was stopped around 10:52 p.m. after police said they spotted him weaving on the road, according Laguna Beach Police Sgt. Jason Kravetz tells PEOPLE. Sambora was driving a Hummer and was with his girlfriend, daughter Ava (whose mother is ex-wife Heather Locklear) and another unidentified juvenile girl.

Though Ava's mother, Heather Locklear and the rocker are divorced, would you be able to forgive your spouse for such an incredible lapse of good judgment?

Absolute deal breaker. My best-friend's sister was killed by a drunk-driver so he already knows how I detest drinking and driving. There's just no excuse for it. So to be doing it with my child in the car would be all she wrote.

As a long time Bon Jovi fan, it's sad to see that Sambora made such a ridiculous mistake. But, I really hope he goes to rehab and gets his life together for his daughter.

f*** no! Sorry for the cursing, but this story has me infuriated. I'm not a mother myself, but hey, he put his kid's life at risk! What would have happened if he got into a car accident??

I don't think I would leave my husband based on one act, no. I am probably in the minority. However, I would never let him drive the kids again. I would force him to go to rehab and get help. And, if he refused...THAT would be the deal breaker.

complete deal breaker and that child would never be a passenger in his car again, untill he installs one of those breathalizer thingees in the car where it wont start if you are drunk.

No, obviously. My husband knows the deal-breakers in our relationship, and being a drunk is one of them.
