Allan Shackelford, 62, an attorney, who met Lundquist while consulting at a college where she worked, said on a newspaper message board that the marriage was over long ago. Lundquist, 49, who filed an appeal, didn't address guilt but says in court documents that she believes $1 is fair. (Both declined comment; public records show they left North Carolina and now both live in Aurora, N.Y.) But money was never the goal, says Cynthia: "I don't want other women out there thinking about cheating with someone they know is married." Besides, she adds, "I would much rather be with my husband today and have our marriage the way it was than have $9 million."
