On a more serious note, character and ideas are two different things. A woman who was married to a smoking, drinking, cheating, gambling abuser may indeed be bitter. Does that nullify her statement that cheating is wrong? And if she's also against gambling and you're not, doesn't it make more sense to discuss the idea of gambling rather than call her bitter?

Her character has no bearing whatsoever on the ideas of cheating and gambling.

ETA: just to be clear, my point is: let's stick to ideas.
