Can the career-oriented US ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy save her marriage with Edwin Schlossberg?
Caroline Kennedy has been battling multiple divorce rumors for years on end. Though Obama’s recent visit to Japan where he was spotted with the couple enjoying a sushi dinner at premiere restaurant might have helped put down many of these rumors, most tabloid editors are convinced that the couple is indeed headed for a divorce in the months to come.
They have already been living in separate homes for years now although this is the first time they will be adjusting to married life in separate countries.
The ageless and ever graceful, Caroline Kennedy, now 56, is the current United States’ ambassador to Japan and an accomplished diplomat as well. She’s the only surviving child of ex-US President John F. Kennedy and his First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy. Her husband, Edwin Schlossberg, now 68, is the founder of a reputed multi-disciplinary design firm based in New York and she has had three children with him.
Caroline and her husband, Ed Schlossberg, got married about 27 years ago in 1986 after dating for over half a decade and for the most part, their married life has been stable and happy. However, with the passage of time, the couple has been facing a host of marital troubles. In fact, they have been living apart for many years now. Her husband, Ed, has been living in Manhattan’s West Village while she herself used to stay in a Park Avenue mansion.
Moreover, Caroline’s appointment as the United States’ Ambassador to Japan in January this year has probably added to their marital strife. She received a high profile nomination from the President, Barack Obama himself last year for this post. Sources claim that Ed did not react well to this news and opted to remain in New York instead of following his wife to Japan. This move might have finally nudged their marriage to the brink of divorce.
A number of reports and sources have claimed that Schlossberg had been tiring of his career oriented wife who clearly prioritizes work over family. Moreover, following Caroline’s high-profile appointment as the 29th US Ambassador to Japan, she has been forced to relocate to Japan. Although her husband has continued to visit her in Japan, he’s probably not very happy about their state of affairs. Neither she nor her husband, have been willing to discuss the status of their marriage with the media. It may be premature to deduce that a divorce is on the cards; however such a deduction does not seem very improbable in light of recent events.
