Though Huma Abedin filed papers to end her pending divorce case on Wednesday, this does not mean she is giving disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner yet another chance.
Page Six reported that Abedin and Weiner withdrew their pending divorce filing in a Manhattan court on Wednesday. According to the report, Abedin had originally been schedule to appear for a compliance conference in regard to the divorce, which was listed as contested. Instead, her attorney submitted a request, signed by both Abedin and Weiner, to end the pending divorce case.
But an attorney speaking on behalf of Abedin clarified to the New York Daily News that this does not mean the couple will stay married — just that the divorce proceedings will be handled privately.
The Daily News report notes that the couple can now re-file their divorce as uncontested.
Abedin filed for divorce in May, just after her sex offender husband admitted to engaging in illicit online behavior with a 15-year-old girl. In September, Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in jail for illicit online contact with a minor.
