Their marriage has become the subject of intense speculation and scrutiny amid an embarrassing online sex scandal. Now, Representative Anthony D. Weiner and Huma Abedin are about to make news of a different kind: they are expecting their first child.
Ms. Abedin, 35, is in the early stages of pregnancy, according to three people with knowledge of the situation. The pregnancy, which the couple has disclosed to close friends and family, adds a new dimension to questions about the future of their marriage.
Mr. Weiner, 46, who has admitted to engaging in salacious online conversations with at least six women over the last few years, has declared that he and his wife have no intention of splitting up, even though some of the exchanges occurred during their marriage.
66. Weiner posts are taking up way too much space at DU. But will comment.
Very much her business and, unlikely, but maybe she knew and did not care.
If she knew beforehand and was OK -- I could not live this --, fine. Otherwise, I find Weiner creepy and far beyond my (what many would consider Atheist) limits would be able to maintain in a committed relationship, much less one with biological children.
This is my first Wiener post.
Weiner posts are taking up way too much space at DU.
64. Do you think slamming her husband online will help
her mental health? We know nothing about their relationship. Not that that will stop people from judging it.
I hope they remain happily married and that they can get on with their lives without Peeping Toms peering in their windows, virtually or otherwise.
I also hope he remains in Congress and I feel certain the people of NY will reelect him as the American people tend to not particularly like witch hunts as the Clinton and Rangel episodes demonstrated.
If she loves her husband, nothing would hurt her more than to see some of the comments on the left about him.
(CNN)- Embattled Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner called former President Bill Clinton Monday to express regret for his actions, CNN has confirmed.
A source familiar with the call would not characterize it in more detail and called it a private conversation.
Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, serves as Secretary Hillary Clinton's chief-of-staff and is well-liked in Democratic circles. The former president officiated at the couple's wedding, and he and the Secretary of State have been extremely close with Huma for years.
Democratic sources say Weiner has made many calls to colleagues and supporters over the last few days. At the same time, pressure has been building for the congressman to resign.
should be able to counsel them well... :evilgrin: I hope they help him hang on. But I would like to see his wife ask him to get into counseling immediately. Sex addiction can be helped. And contrary to logic, he can still be very much in love with his wife even while he goes in for online flashing.
Times have changed and we have to realize everything we do online, all emails, etc are there forever even if deleted.
So unless society at large expects perfection from all of its people stuff will get out. As long as it doesnt affect the job i am ok with him staying. Now if he sits at his office on my dime and spent most of the day with it i would have a problem.
Same goes for repubs. The problem is basically with them that they vote and preach against the very thing they are doing.
Most folks are acting like Huma is a naive wife that has thin-skin. I think she is not. She has had to deal with bad press in the past and I'm sure she learned from the experience. I believe she will be just fine this time.
It would be hard enough to deal with what her husband did, but adding the prego hormones and possible morning sickness at the same time??? That f'ing sucks! I don't care if she stays or goes. Either way, I hope she finds her happy.
