Late Beau Biden’s Wife Hallie & his Younger Brother Hunter have their Family’s Blessings as they kick off a Romantic Relationship



Former Vice President Joe Biden’s late son, Beau Biden’s wife Hallie is reportedly now dating Beau’s brother Hunter who is married but currently separated.

According to Page Six, Hallie and Hunter connected after Beau sadly passed away from brain cancer in May 2015.

Hunter is still married to his estranged wife Kathleen, but the family is apparently totally okay with the new romance.

Hunter told the paper that “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. We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”

Former VP Joe Biden told the paper, “We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”

      Her son is even named after the guy sef. I suspect they had been catching feelings before his wife left. When he was comforting the grieving widow.
      We will never know the full details sha.

      Levirate marriage things.
      This has been happening in Yorubaland since 19gbogboro. Just that it was usually forced and not entered into willingly. The only problem here is dude should have gotten a divorce first.
      Asides that, there is nothing new under the sun.
      And I think it shows a low level of smarts to assume that they HAD to have been seeing each other before Beau Biden died.

    This is just wrong in so many levels. Does that mean they both were doing the do behind their partners?

      I mean, it could be argued that they were before they openly came out after one separated and the other passed away

      No it doesn’t mean that! If it did the family would not support their relationship.

    • Seriously

      How do you know? It could be a secret kept between both of them. You just don’t wake up one morning and start dating, there’s been feelings there. And what if Beau didn’t die, they will probably just be cheating behind their spouses back or die with the feelings. Either way, it’s odd. I personally don’t think I want to keep such in the family.

    But who asked me? Hehe..

      Smartest comment here. It’s human nature for those who depend on each other while grieving to develop feelings for one another. The difference is these two chose to act on the said feelings. I highly doubt they were messing around while the brother was alive. They probably never even noticed one another in that way until their kids started playing together or something and they had to be present for it sans their significant others and then boom feelings. We are all human after all. I don’t support them acting on it but the beautiful thing about Caucasians, they will always do what makes them happy.

      uhmmm you realise that your ancestors in naija def practiced this. so it aint nothing about weird caucasians.
      In biblical days….werent brothers marrying their brother’s wives? family members marrying family members

    So messy. I can’t pretend to understand what people need to do on grief to move forward so I ain’t gawn judge… But it sure sounds like a hot mess

    This looks strange, but it is happening and they have the backing of their parents.

    What about all the kids involved and Kathleen Biden? These onyibo people don’t reason well at times

      relax and watch a nollywood movie, so you will understand this has always happened.

    @tasty what do you mean by “really girl” what of the brother? Is she in the relashionship alone??Two adults make a decision to be together after the loss of a loved one (which to me is fine. Even God grants the right to remarry when death is involved. The fact that its your husbands brother doesn’t make it wrong. Wish them well and stop judging

    Grief and loneliness is the most difficult emotion to express. It can leave you immensely vulnerable
    I get it…
    I just don’t agree

    When Africans inherit their late brothers’ wives they call it a barbaric act….In America its called finding each other

    • Bleed Blue

      I get you, but the difference in both approaches is that word “inherit”.

      These 2 actually desire to be together. They appear to be in love.

      However, in the typical African version, the woman (who is still trying to grieve her late husband) is almost immediately after the funeral, thrust into the eager bed of some man she’s previously only viewed as a brother.

      I just took a moment to imagine having to be forced into intimacy with any of hubby’s brothers. As darned fine as all 3 brothers are, abeg I fitn’t.

      So true. Until a white person does it, it’s not okay. Just like whites rocking black hairstyles, suddenly braids, cornrows is cool. Having curves on black women was looked upon, big lips now Caucasians doing it and it becomes fine.
      Maybe the only difference I see in the practices is when it was done back in Africa, the women didn’t have choices, they were coerced to marry within the family. The men inherited the wives which was against a lot of the women’s will.

      In this case, these two people had a choice they acted on the feeling developed for each other.

    Abeg abeg abeg, nobody should bring bible and Africa into this. These ones are just doing their own thing.

    In biblical time and in Africa, polygamy is permissible. In America, polygamy is not acceptable – Hunter cannot be with his wife, Kathleen and want to ‘kuchie’ Hallie, his brother’s wife. These onyibo people are just twisting things to their comfort. The same God that killed Judah’s second son because he refused to sire kids for his older brother through his widow, says he hate divorce.

    If we are talking Bible and Africa, Hunter should be with the two women. Shikena!
