The couple, who married in 2005, frequently publicly supported each other. In a Vogue magazine article, the couple described how they first met as youngsters, when Sophie was in the same elementary school as the future politician’s brother, and then again in 2003 at a Montreal charity event. A few months later, the two went out to dinner, and towards the end, he remarked to Vogue, “I’m 31 years old, and I’ve been waiting for you for 31 years.”

Trudeau will be the first prime minister since his father and mother divorced in 1977 to go through a divorce while still in government. According to the National Post, then-Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau’s wife Margaret moved to New York City with her husband, who was 29 years her senior, and three sons. Six years later, she filed for divorce.
