When Elites Give Up on Marriage


David Cameron, the British prime minister, is laudably seeking to uphold marriage as key to a stable society in a speech today.

Meanwhile his Energy Secretary Chris Huhne "is engaged in a bitter divorce from his estranged wife Vicky Pryce, who has five children including three with Mr Huhne, after he left her for his bisexual lover."

Now there's a complex new family form.

update -- from a reader: Wikipedia confirms the less wacky reading of the sentence. i.e., that Ms. Pryce (nee Courmouzis) had two children during her marriage to her first husband, and then three more following her divorce from Mr. Pryce and subsequent marriage to Mr. Huhne.
