Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, have announced that they are separating after 18 years of marriage.
The couple released a joint statement on Wednesday, saying that they had “made the difficult decision to separate.” They said that they would continue to be “loving parents” to their three children, Xavier, Ella-Grace, and Hadrien.
“We are committed to working together to ensure our children continue to have a happy and stable home,” the statement said.
The Trudeaus met in 2003 when Sophie was a TV personality and Justin was a rising star in the Liberal Party. They were married in 2005 and have three children together.
Justin Trudeau has been Prime Minister of Canada since 2015. He is the second-youngest person to ever hold the office.
The news of the Trudeaus’ separation has come as a surprise to many people. The couple had always appeared to be happily married.
In their statement, the Trudeaus said that they had “come to this decision through mutual respect and understanding.” They said that they would continue to “support each other” and that they would “always be family.”
The news of the Trudeaus’ separation has sparked a lot of discussion on social media. Some people have expressed their sadness, while others have said that they are not surprised.
The Trudeaus’ separation is a reminder that even the most successful and seemingly happy couples can face challenges in their relationships. It is also a reminder that even when couples separate, they can still be loving parents and supportive friends.
