David Petraeus's wife is enraged that he cheated on her with his biographer Paula Broadwell after 37 years of marriage

Holly Petraeus has not been seen publicly since her husband resigned as the Director of the CIA but his former spokesman and family friend Ret. U.S. Army Col. Steve Boylan revealed the anger she is feeling.

"Well, as you can imagine, she's not exactly pleased right now," Boylan told Good Morning America revealing that the former CIA director told him that Holly was irate over the affair with Broadwell.

"In a conversation with David Petraeus this weekend, he said that, 'Furious would be an understatement.' And I think anyone that's been put in that situation would probably agree. He deeply hurt the family."

Boylan also gave a timeline of the affair Petraeus had with Broadwell, saying that the relationship began several months after his retirement from the Army in August 2011 and ended four months ago.

He said Petreaus recognizes the magnitude of his indiscretion.

"He had a huge job and he felt he was doing great work and that is all gone now."

Petraeus knows "this was poor judgment on his part. It was a colossal mistake. ... He's acknowledged that," Boylan said.
