Nečas marriage in trouble

17-01-2013

Prime Minister Petr Nečas and his spouse Radka have revealed in a joint-statement that they are currently going through a difficult period in their marriage, confirming to the Czech news agency that they had been living separately for several months. The statement was issued following increased speculation by the media over several weeks; the prime minister turned down a traditional New Year’s lunch with the president earlier in January, where both wives would have been present. Mr and Mrs Nečas revealed they had no concrete plans on how to proceed but made clear their dedication to their four children, as well as continuing respect for each other, was of primary importance.
