Canadian newspaper columnist Christie Blatchford has marked a stark presence in the field of journalism and broadcasting with multiple-skill sets and distinctive talent. The 67-year-old has served as a newspaper columnist and broadcaster along with authoring four non-fiction books achieving success in all the fields.
However, her success in professional career has not been transmitted into her personal life. Her own life has seen her become a part of failed relationships which has served to make her wiser.
Is Two-Time Divorcee Christie Blatchford Married For The Third Time?
After failing to adhere to the vows of marriage twice, the veteran journalist seems to be leading a single life right now. There have been no mentions about Christies's latest spouse as she has continued to live a less detailed, secluded life away from the clamor of TV.
Previously, Christie had been married twice. Despite hiding the detail's of her ex-husbands from the prying eyes of paparazzi, what had been an open secret was her failure to maintain her wedding vows. She miserably failed to maintain a healthy relationship with both husbands with both weddings ending in separation.
Despite the bad blood between her and partners, her divorce with her exes was as amicable as possible. The separation was easier considering the fact that she had no children with both her partners. Despite breaking the wedding vows, Christie never stopped talking with them and always wished goodwill.
As an experienced head who had gone through two divorces, Christie penned a column for the National Post providing advice for men. Addressing all the males filing for a divorce, Blatchford wrote:
“No one cares how mean your ex was, how unfair she was to you and so on … at the end of the day, the system can’t right wrongs, only process your case”
As she has made through the process twice, Christie has learned what it takes to cope up with the unsettling situation which could hunt any married couple at any time.
