A smiling Chelsea Clinton and her equally ostensibly happy husband Marc Mezvinsky were spotted earlier today running errands together in Manhattan.Â Rumors have been running wild about the state of the couple’s six-month marriage ever since Marc abruptly resigned from his lucrative job on Wall Street and flew off to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for an extended ski vacation.Â A few days ago, Chelsea was seen still wearing her wedding ring, leading many people to conclude that her marital problems were just a hoax.Â Now, it seems that, much like Mark Twain’s death, the rumors of the couple’s irreparably ruptured union have been greatly exaggerated.Â
According to Hollywood Life, the allegedly splitsville-bound pair spent the morning of February 5th working out together at a local gym where they were joined by Mezvinsky’s mother, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky.Â Afterward, they hit the road and “ran some errands like most every other couple.”Â It is significant that both wore their respective wedding bands.Â And both seemed smiling, relaxed, and happy.Â
So there you have it.Â False alarm.Â Chelsea and Marc aren’t separated or annulled.Â They aren’t even “back together” because they never really parted.Â Apparently, Chelsea is happy going to school in New York, and Marc must really love skiing.Â Their marriage is still definitely on.
And what about the so-called “insiders” who started and or helped fuel the rumors of their impending break-up?Â In all fairness, it is unusual for newlyweds to choose to live so far apart–even temporarily.Â Â Especially when it isn’t absolutely necessary.Â Â Still, there are all sorts of marriages and all sorts of spouses.Â Apparently this separation works for them.Â Who knows?Â Perhaps, the almost 2,000-mile physical distance between them makes the time they do spend together all the more intense.Â
Best of luck, Chelsea and Marc.
