For centuries, widows often married the brother of their dead husband. Even so, some of the media are hyping the current dating relationship between Hallie Biden, the widow of Beau Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, and Hunter Biden, the married brother of Beau and son of Joe Biden.
Former vice president Joe Biden’s family — often depicted in holiday cards that look as if they could have been torn from the pages of a glossy magazine — revealed a surprising drama Wednesday, courtesy of a titillating tabloid report.
Hallie Biden, the widow of Beau Biden, the late Delaware attorney general and son of the former vice president, is in a relationship with Beau’s married brother, Hunter, the New York Post’s Page Six reported. And the soap-operatic tale couldn’t be discounted, since it came with on-the-record statements from Hunter Biden and from the former vice president and his wife, Jill.
“Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time, and that’s been obvious to the people who love us most,” Hunter said in a statement to the New York newspaper. “We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”
