Huma Calls Off Divorce From Anthony Weiner – Preserving Spousal Privilege?

Huma Abedin has cancelled her plans to divorce her disgraced husband Anthony Weiner. This has one very convenient explanation. Spouses can’t be called upon to testify against one another.

The New York Post reports:

Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner withdraw their divorce

Say it ain’t so, Huma.

Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her jailed sext-a-holic hubby, Anthony Weiner, have withdrawn their pending divorce case, The Post has learned.

Abedin was scheduled to appear in Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday afternoon for a compliance conference in their contested divorce. Instead, one of her attorneys submitted paperwork signed by both parties agreeing to end the case, a court source told The Post.

The judge announced from the bench that the case was “discontinued.”

Abedin’s lawyer, Charles Miller, told The Post, “In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have decided to attempt to reach a settlement swiftly and privately.”

But a family law expert said Abedin and Weiner would still have to file for divorce in court if they want their settlement to be legally binding.

Is there something coming down the road that we don’t know about? Some sordid detail that hasn’t yet been made public? Stay tuned.
