Mark Sanford will return to South Carolina on Sunday after spending the weekend with his family in Florida."]COLUMBIA, South Carolina (CNN) - Gov. Mark Sanford will return to South Carolina on Sunday after spending two days with his wife and four boys in Florida, according to his office.
Sanford departed Columbia on Friday.
The visit marked the first time Sanford has seen his wife in person since he revealed to the Associated Press that his mistress is a “soul mate” and that he had “crossed lines” with other women.
Jenny Sanford released a statement Thursday calling Sanford’s actions “inexcusable,” but she left the door open to reconciling with her husband.
“The real issue now is one of forgiveness,” she said. “I am willing to forgive Mark for his actions.”
