Divorce comes from all sorts of situations in a marriage. Pressure that causes stress is one of them.
On Thursday in New York City, Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from her husband, President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr..
The New York Post, Page Six uncontested proceeding in Manhattan Supreme Court. This means she does not expect a legal battle over custody of their five children or assets.
In a statement the couple said, “After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways. We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
Vanessa and Trump Jr. were married in 2005. Page Six reported earlier this week that the couple has been struggling through marital problems.
Vanessa was taken to the hospital last month, after receiving a letter containing white powder that was later deemed to be non-hazardous.
The president’s daughter-in-law opened the letter addressed to Donald Jr. in the couple’s Manhattan apartment.
It is still not clear what the white powder actually was.
He tweeted at that time:
Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning. Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.

Trump Jr. discarded his Secret Service detail for a while in September. I was reported that he wanted more privacy.
Sources told Page Six that Vanessa is a private person.
His Secret Service detail was reactivated about a week later.
Let’s give Trump Jr. and Vanessa a little privacy at this time.
Being under a spotlight is never easy on a marriage.
