"I can't imagine that she saw any of this coming. Because she would have taken those kids and ran."
A quote from Melissa Hanson, a home-town friend of Tara's, in the linked article.
There's lots of fodder in this article for those who want to warn young girls off such relationships.
I'm sure there were a lot of things, over the years, that gave Tara a bad feeling about her marriage and her husband, but she did not think it would go so far.
It really comes back to Rule #1, doesn't it?
"FIRST LIE, SAY GOODBYE.*"
Of course, this only works if you remove the blinders and RECOGNIZE the lie.
