    Are the Billary (Bill and Hillary Clinton) Still in Love?

    Given all that they have been through in their marriage, do you think that Bill and Hillary Clinton are still In love or do they stay together due to professional image or convenience?

    Would you after your husband cheated on you with several women? I am personally shocked that the feminists have not chastised her for NOT leaving. As to love, well, they are never together anymore.She is traveling around the world all the time and he is on a book tour. They are together in name only in my opinion.

    Bill and Hillary Clinton share a long history and a daughter.  Both are intelligent, well-educated individuals that respect those aspects in each other.  I believe,  weathering the embarrassing turn of events in Bill Clinton's public affair while serving as President and his consequential impeachment, left Hillary publically betrayed and personally humiliated. 

    Living apart now, experiencing her own personal political success, pride in their adult, successful daughter and Bill's ability to regain his bearings on a personal and professional level, has revitalized a deep respect and friendship between these two former spouses.  The public demeanors they portray when seen together is one of two civilized, intelligent people that remain friends with many fond memories of a shared past together. 

    As they grow older, it appears they make better friends than bed fellows. They set an exemplary example of ex-spouses with a first-class acceptance of each other, the ability to agree to disagree, still be able to laugh with each other and remain positive about a future that will probably always include each other as close friends..

    I would be surprised if they were still in love. I think it's probably more a marriage of convenience or image. Personally, I don't know how Hillary can stand thinking about being with him after he was with so many women...so publicly. I couldn't.

    Were they ever?  That is a question that can only mean something to them.  There are marriages that have lasted a very long time with notions of romantic love as the least important "cement" in the relationship. 

    I suspect political ambition was an important part of their relationship from the beginning.   As to whether that was the entire relationship,  I am a cynic, but rein that in when discussing personal relationships of others.

    Ruthlessly ambitious, egocentric political couples throughout history have maintained a facade of marriage merely because society demands that those in prominent public positions demonstrate at least superficially the social proprieties expected of others. For such figures, love and affection have nothing to do with it. They're on stage, acting for a payoff in power. If the Clintons ever had more  between them than a private contract by which they could advance a mutual political agenda, they had to jettison it long ago and come to terms with one another's predilections in order to stay on track to their dreams of power, position and wealth. Now they have achieved most of those objectives, they can relax and be more comfortable with one another in public. They no longer even have to keep a household together, which must have been a great strain for many years.

    Their relationship is better described as a professional partnership than as a marriage. It cannot be understood in terms of love. It is a mistake to ascribe benign personal characteristics to political animals. Their motives are different from those of people in the real world.

    Were they ever or was it a marriage of convenience to further both political careers? I don't like answering a question with another question but I don't wish to speak wrongly against a marriage that may very well be solid.  smile

    Marriage is a funny animal!  There are times you want to kill the other party and times when you wonder how you could imagine living without them. 

    I imagine their marriage is the same.  Unfortunately they have to live it in front of the world.  I cannot imagine doing that - It must be a lot of pressure on the family.  Each marriage is unique and has its own nuances.  People looking in might have their own opinions but no one but the two involved really know what is going on, everything else is speculation. 

    So, I suppose I think they are as much in love as the any other couple.

    Who knows?  And of course, it's ultimately not our business.

    I think that after many years of marriage, the 'in love' concept becomes less central--when you have shared so many experiences together, and (one hopes) understand each other so well, companionship and acceptance become more central.  Some couples remain more erotic together, others less so; there's not really a recipe for how to be together.

    While it's true, IMO, that the very highly ambitious, like the very rich, are 'different from you and me,' it's definitely a mistake to think that they don't share basic human feelings and needs, as some answering this question have suggested.

    I think it's possibly a matured love, and definitely a business deal.  They're not around each other very much, are they?

    I don't know whether Mother in Law of Pakistan (lol) is still in love with her husband but I am sure that they do share good time of their old age as they did in their early life.

    Still in love?  That implies they were ever truly in love.  I think they were prior to his first presidential run, but I think their marriage became more about politics than anything.
