Bill De Blasio Emasculated by His Wife
On Wednesday, Bill de Blasio, the former mayor of New York City, and his wife Chirlane McCray stated through the New York Times that they intend to see other people while continuing to reside together and being married.
The decision to end their marriage was made during a dull Saturday night when de Blasio and McCray were binge-watching, approximately two months before the article was published by NYT. Despite being married for almost 30 years since 1994, their separation was due to one unpleasant conversation. Adding to the sadness, they plan on dating other people but still residing under the same roof.
The couple resides in a townhouse in Park Slope and raised their children there. Despite their children being in their twenties, they still live together. They intend to date other people while continuing to live in the same house. This seems like a familiar plot, and it often leads to an unhappy ending.
Although I believe it is unfair to criticize someone’s marriage coming to an end, it appears that de Blasio and his wife did not make enough effort to save their relationship. McCray mentioned that de Blasio didn’t have time for therapy, and being involved in politics strained their marriage. Additionally, McCray compared their commitment to being trapped in a box, which eventually became suffocating for her.
The New York Times article appears to be a personal journal entry that may be difficult for readers to navigate. It is both sad and aggravating, resembling a pretentious independent film that fails to attract an audience.

They both seem to be happier now that they are able to have other partners while still living together. Who knows how long this arrangement will last, but this doesn’t sound like a good scenario. But I’d be lying if I said that this surprised me. If you know anything about de Blasio and his family, this makes perfect sense.
