COLUMBIA, S.C., Aug. 18 (UPI) -- South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has "issues" he needs to work on to save his marriage, his estranged wife told Vogue magazine.

Jenny Sanford, who retreated to the family's beach house on Sullivan's Island, S.C., with her four sons after the governor's extramarital affair surfaced publicly, told the magazine her husband is going through a midlife crisis, the magazine reported on its Web site Tuesday.

"I think my husband has got some issues that he needs to work on, about happiness and what happiness means," she told Vogue. "You wish it wouldn't come to a crisis like this, but I think when a lot of men get to this midpoint in life, they start asking questions that they probably should have asked a long time ago."

Mark Sanford, a Republican who campaigned on traditional family values, was forced to admit he was visiting a lover in Argentina during a period this year when his whereabouts were unknown, even to his staff. His wife said he was "obsessed" with the woman.

"I have learned that these affairs are almost like an addiction to alcohol or pornography," Jenny Sanford told Vogue. "They just can't break away from them."
