It’d be something if they did, though, wouldn’t it? Imagine loving someone so much that you take them back them after they got busted sexting teenagers and cost your boss the presidency in the process.
That’d be a love story for the ages.
But no, despite the buzz around the New York Post’s story, “Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner call off divorce,” the truth is more mundane. They’re not calling off the divorce, they’re merely settling it out of court to spare their young son some future agony.
Huma Abedin and convicted perv Anthony Weiner agreed Wednesday to finalize their divorce out of court, seeking to protect their 6-year-old son from an embarrassing public separation…
“In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have decided to finalize their divorce swiftly and privately,” Abedin attorney Charles Miller said in a statement.
The judge confirmed from the bench that the case had been discontinued.
If they’d stuck it out in court, it would have been a tabloid sh*tshow:
They have not called off their divorce. She’s protecting her son. The judge was having Anthony appear in court today via Skype and Huma understandably doesn’t want this private matter handled publicly. They are handling this matter in a private settlement. https://t.co/Ue5GUGkYml

Why would either of them want to be married at this point? Huma’s just 41 years old, still a well-connected princess of ClintonWorld, and a figure of some sympathy on the left given what Weiner’s done to her and her son. She’ll probably be chief of staff to President Chelsea someday if she sheds the 150 pounds of heavy-breathing spousal dead weight she’s currently carrying.
And Weiner? Once he’s out of prison, he’ll be sexting again. The behavior’s obviously compulsive; there’s no way he would have continued it after being busted by Andrew Breitbart if he had any control over it. As a newly single man, he’ll be free to send as many “a/s/l” chatroom messages at three in the morning as he likes. So long as he stays out of the “Under 18” chatrooms, of course. We’ll see.
Exit question: How long before the president tweets something congratulating Huma for dumping the “pervert loser” or whatever? Over/under is four hours.
