Abedin married then-Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) on July 10, 2010. Former President Bill Clinton presided at the wedding, which took place at the Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York on Long Island.
In June 2011, Abedin became the subject of widespread media attention amid her husband's Twitter photo scandal. In the press conference where he admitted the online sexual conversations, Weiner said he had revealed his online relationships to his wife before their marriage. Regarding the new revelations, Weiner said, "She was very unhappy, she was very disappointed, and she told me as much. And she also told me that she loved me and we're going to get through this."
As of June 2011 Abedin was in the early stages of pregnancy.
