Married For Over A Decade, Kerry Kennedy And Governor Andrew Cuomo: Failed Because Of Betrayal?
Kerry Kennedy's marriage did not go well even after a decade of married life!
The Human rights activist was married to the American politician who is serving as the 56th and current governor of New York. Cuomo offered Kennedy a diamond ring on Valentine's day in 1990 after being together for about two years.
The couple married on 9 June 1990 that had two of America's powerful political families in Cathedral of St.Matthew which is a Catholic church about half a mile distance from the White House.
The bride walked down the aisle alone as her late father was no more with them initially. The guests included Mayor David N. Dinkins, newspaper columnists Jimmy Breslin and Art Buchwald and filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola which also included a swarm of photographers.
Kennedy wore a gleaming silk, a Scaasi-designed dress, a beautiful neckline, a voluminous skirt with a cathedral train ornamented with silver bugle beads, crystals, and hearts of pearl.
The maids of honor at the wedding were the bride's younger sister, Rory Kennedy and a friend Mary Richardson.
The couple had a beautiful wedding ceremony with about 300 people present there and their 6-day long honeymoon was planned in the Caribbean while the couple initially planned to settle in Queens, New York.
Their marriage was a blast for a couple of years but not for too long. Well, they participated in the marriage therapy by the second year of their marriage as the husband was utterly consumed by work and Kennedy was weighted with all the responsibility.
Along with a load of parenting their three young children, twin Cara Ethel Kennedy Cuomo and Mariah Matilda Kennedy Cuomo who were born on 11 January 1995 and Michaela Andrea Kennedy Cuomo who was born on 26th August 1997, their marriage was at a huge danger.
While Kennedy joined the campaign of her husband, she came to know that he had been working hard and had no doubt that he would make a good governor and the problems were all personal between the couple.
Cuomo confronted her for having an affair with a polo player Bruce Colley while Kennedy told her husband to mind his own business and move out of the house. Cuomo wrote in his autobiography,
"After 13 years of marriage, and truly stressful times, I knew the ties that bound us together had frayed. But I had hoped we could work through what I saw was a difficult time, not an end. Obviously, I was in denial."
Shocking news awaited Andrew at home on 11 September 2002 when Kennedy demanded a divorce.
Their divorce was finalized in 2003. Cuomo eventually won the New York governorship in 2011 and started dating celebrity cook Sandra Lee the same year.
Kennedy resides near her ex-husband in Westchester, New York. On March 2015 her youngest daughter Michaela was found unconscious at her mother's home and was rushed to the hospital but was still unclear what caused the medical emergency.
