Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, have announced their separation after 18 years of marriage. This decision was made after "many meaningful and difficult conversations."
Both parties have signed a legal separation agreement, according to a statement from the prime minister's office. The couple tied the knot in 2005 and have three children: 15-year-old Xavier, 14-year-old Ella-Grace, and 9-year-old Hadrien.
Despite their separation, they remain a close-knit family, with Sophie and the prime minister committed to raising their kids in a safe, loving, and collaborative environment. In fact, the family will be spending time together on vacation starting next week.
Respecting their privacy during this time is kindly requested by the prime minister's office.
Interestingly, Justin Trudeau is not the first Canadian prime minister to announce a separation while in office. His father, Pierre Trudeau, also went through a separation from his wife Margaret in 1979, which eventually led to their divorce in 1984.
Justin Trudeau initially gained popularity and captured the attention of the public due to his connection with his father's legacy as a Liberal icon. However, after eight years in power, scandals, voter fatigue, and economic inflation have taken a toll on his popularity.
