    I don't get it. Why is that Melania is still sticking around with Trump?

      We can't read her mind. She doesn't give us a lot to go on. I won't assume that I know what she's thinking or feeling.

        Melania is currently saving up to buy Panama. So hubby has somewhere to keep his loot.

        edit: that is what we call "satire". Not to be confused with false news.

      She has answered that question, in her public opinions of who and what Trump is.  Should you choose to think she was lying it is up to you to make up your own reasons she stays.  Not to present them as true, of course, but you may make up anything you wish.

    Overlord Trump is not going to be upstaged by Melania.

      One would think the Liberal-Amundo News Media surely can find a serious  agenda to begin persuing ?

        The club has 500 members. The $100,000 price hike is significant cash. Up to $50 million...

        Cool return on getting elected. And this is a very small part of Trump's business dealings. Think of the knock on effect of that status boost across all his holdings. His family will be exploiting it the max, regardless of this 'reclusing myself' BS.

        Someone, will come up with a figure, soon. Compare it to what you get from his reign.

    Why did Maimie stay with Ike?  Why did Jackie stay with John? Why did Hillary stay with Bill?  When it comes right down to it: it's nobody's business but theirs.

      Given that Melania has put a price of $142 million on her stint as First Lady, I don't think this kind of common decency applies.

        She says she wants Barron to finish his school term, but he's going to have to switch schools anyway, and he's missing seeing his Father.

        I'll venture a guess they were on the verge of separating, and then got distracted and dazzled by the Election and Presidential win. Billions of dollars are nice too.

          What do you base your guess on?  That you personally hate her husband and therefore she must do the same?

            Jean Bakulaposted 5 weeks ago in reply to this

            I'm tired of being personally attacked by you. I don't personally hate anyone. I've only been married once, so am not an expert on multiple marriages. I took my original vows seriously.

            It's strange that the Trumps have made this arrangement "for Barron" and live apart all week. Melania is the First Lady, and normally has to oversee the changes in the family residence at the WH. Barron has to change schools eventually. Plus most First Ladies are on a whirlwind tour of talk shows in the beginning, and she seems to be shunning everything about the WH.

            Her husband seems to choose Ivanka to be the hostess of the WH, not his wife. Since Melania is his 3rd wife, beautiful, a seemingly nice person, and a lot younger than him, I would think he would pay more attention to her. Since he isn't, it seems that they were living separate lives before the election, since they have several properties. Just they weren't in the spotlight so much before. Well, he was. I wonder if he's tweeting from a secure phone.

              You don't want your nasty assumptions questioned, don't post them.

              Yeah, Melania wants her kid to maintain school without switching in the middle of the year.  I did too, when we moved across the country, and did everything in my power to maintain as much continuity for the kids as I possibly could.  Somehow, it never occurred to me that doing so meant our marriage was on the skids.

              I don't have a secure phone, and don't see that as having anything to do with my marriage either.  Do you?

    … cause they had sex (at least once, apparently) and sex can be like a love potion.

    Donald Trump has the best marriages. Terrific wives! Look at all the losers commenting on his marriages. So sad!

      I will say that I do not think Wilderness's attack is personal. I reckon, it is merely asking for evidence, in a rather sharp way.

      Since I am guilty of that from time to time, I cannot be condemnatory, lol.

        You got it.  Barron has been attacked for being a youth instead of an adult.  Melania has been attacked for being beautiful, for being an immigrant, for being successful in a very difficult business...the list goes on.  Now we hear that her marriage is rocky...apparently because saying it might cause hurt or pain to a Trump family member. 

        The open hatred flowing out of some of the people of the US is astounding, and deserving of a very sharp response.  This entire thread deserves nothing else - it belongs in the Enquirer, for those with "inquiring minds" that have nothing better to do than spread malicious and cruel gossip.

      Thank you Kathleen. I agree with you it's nobody's business but their own. But there is one difference, not many couples get the experience to live in the WH together (though it sounds difficult, having so little privacy).

      I think this thread was started in a sort of gossipy spirit of fun, not intended to hurt anyone. I most certainly do not have "open hatred flowing out of me" maybe somebody should take a long look at himself.

      Barron is still going to have to change schools and is probably getting teased everyday anyway, that's how 10 year old kids are. (I have a teacher and a psychotherapist in the family, and Barron's age is hard for everyone). He would learn more being with both parents. This is not the same kind of situation as the average couple with kids who makes decisions. Barron has a chance to see the World with his Father. I realize Melania is just being a good Mom and trying to protect her son. I didn't say anything bad about her, I think the whole change is probably very overwhelming.

      They way Trump slaps Melania on the behind almost every time we see them get on a plane or have that view, says a lot about their marriage. A huge lack of respect, to treat her that way in public.

    Obviously no one knows what goes on behind closed doors, though I do feel that there's evidence to suggest it's perhaps not the happiest of relationships.

    Why is she still sticking around?  Who knows.  Maybe for the kid.  Maybe because it looks bad on Trump if she leaves now and she doesn't want to deal with that fallout.  Maybe because she does love him and their awkward body language/lack of natural chemistry/long distance thing is just due to nerves being in such a high profile spot now.

    Whatever the reasons I hope she's okay.  I do feel bad for her, I think the way he treats her and talks about her is not very genuine or loving, and she gets a lot of crap from the media/people who hate her husband and take it out on her.
