It was only a matter of time…
Anthony Weiner's sexting has officially cost him his marriage. Huma Abedin has filed for divorce from her estranged husband whom she wed in 2010. This divorce comes shortly after the former Congressman pleaded guilty to having an inappropriate online relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

According to the New York Post, Huma expects to receive full custody of the couple’s only child, five-year-old Jordan, and is expecting no fight over the couple’s assets because of her ex’s impending status as a sex offender.

“She could run to family court and file a petition [attempting to limit his access] immediately,” lawyer Israel Fried told the news outlet. “She could also seek an order of protection.”
Other lawyers chimed in saying that Huma definitely “has a leg up” over her Anthony.

On Friday, May 19, Anthony, 52, appeared in court to talk about his sordid past with sexting. “I have a sickness but I do not have an excuse,” he said to the judge. He is facing up to 10 years in prison for his inappropriate interaction with a young teen girl.
Though the couple has been estranged separated since August, reports surfaced back in March alleging that the high-profile duo was giving their relationship another shot.
“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” a source told the New York Post. “He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the [Irving Place apartment] they share. . . If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn. Both [his and her] families are hoping they will reconcile.”
Well, it looks like some things just can’t be fixed.
