Weiner was found guilty on May 19, 2017, and soon afterward Abedin filed for divorce from him. The pair withdrew their divorce in January 2018 as they wanted to settle down things in private and save their son from any further embarrassment.

During a media interaction, Abedin said, “I was always bracing for the next bad news call, the next piece of, ‘Aha! We discovered this.'” She even stated that she thought of changing the title of her book to Bracing.
