The lady who stood by Lou Vincent
Susie Markham has been by Lou Vincent's side through his darkest moments and continues to do so following his candid confession to cheating. Vincent's partner talks to Andrew Alderson of the New Zealand Herald on their life together, Vincent's battles with depression and the sacrifices she has made for the sake of his rehabilitation.
"I had a decision to make but nothing shocked me with Lou. That might sound crazy but the reason is: I really get him. When I met him he was all over the place. It made me dizzy. The first meal we had out together he'd got the bill before I'd finished eating. He was stressed, drank a lot and often cried."
