WASHINGTON: Tim Geithner and Carole Sonnenfeld: Why their marriage is divorce-proof

Former Pres. of the Federal Reserve and current Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and his wife Carole Sonnenfeld Geithner are moving to Washington and will likely take a loss on the sale of their house in Larchmont. That’s old news.  Also old news is the fact that the Treasury Secretary married Carole Sonnenfeld Geithner whom he met his senior year of Darthmouth, in 1985, and that they have two kids, Elise and Benjamin Geithner. Plus, he has that Asian/calm/zen thing going on like Obama (aparently he, like Obama spent part of his formative years in foreign countries; in his case– in Zimbabwe, Thailand, China and India.)
What isn’t such old news is why their marriage is divorce proof. That, my friend, is due to the fact that his mother Deborah and Carole’s mother Portia are both policewomen for their marriage. Both women apparently share a love of music. Deborah is a piano teacher and Portia is the conductor of the Chamber Symphony of Princeton. They also share a deep loathing for divorce.
Timothy and Carole Geithner both know that if they ever got divorced, their mothers would pretty much disown them. That’s it in a nutshell. Their marriage is divorce-proof because of their mothers. Do tell. There will be no D.C. style divorce for these two. http://www.divorcesaloon.com/divorce-dc-style
