Boris Johnson has enjoyed 25 years of marriage with his wife Marina despite his spectacularly colorful love life and chain of at least three issues.
He married his girlfriend from Oxford University Allegra Mostyn-Owen in 1987, but they divorced in 1993 after his affair with his current but separate wife, Marina Wheeler.
Today, Marina and Boris announced that they will divorce among the claims that they finally kicked him out permanently.
In 2004, her four-year romance with the journalist and author of the Petronella Wyatt society was made public.
Nicknamed & # 39; Petsy & # 39 ;, later told how she had an abortion and suffered a miscarriage.

Mr. Johnson has had relations with Helen Macintyre (left), with whom he had a loving son, and Petronella Wyatt (right), with whom, according to reports, he slept for four years.
He was fired from his role as shadow arts minister by then-conservative leader Michael Howard for lying about the relationship.

Mr. Johnson had previously described reports of an adventure as an "inverted pyramid of mischief".
Howard's spokesman said at the time that the problem was "personal morality."
Two years later, News of the World reported on an affair with journalist Anna Fazackerley, claiming that Johnson had been seen leaving his apartment in West London.
Marina Wheeler kicked her husband out of his home in London for his infidelities, but the couple later amended things.
And in 2009 it is said that Mr. Johnson fathered a son with art consultant Helen Macintyre. It is understood that Mrs. Wheeler had kicked him out of the family home at that time.
Mr. Johnson's fatherhood of Miss Macintyre's daughter was first revealed by the Daily Mail in July 2010.
In 2013, a court ruled that it was in the public interest for the press to report that Mr. Johnson was the father.
His friend has said that his wife tolerates his romance, because he sees it as a "childish side of his personality from which he will one day grow up."
It seems that another alleged adventure may have changed his opinion.
In a joint personal statement issued to the Press Association through a friend of the family, the couple said their separation occurred "several months ago."
Boris Johnson's first wife was Allegra Mostyn-Owen, whom he met in college but then cheated on her with Marina. According to reports, he also had a love affair with the journalist Anna Fazackerley, which emerged after he was seen leaving his apartment in London.
The announcement comes after The Sun revealed on its cover that the conservative parliamentarian and his wife, both lawyers, no longer lived together.
In his statement, Mr. Johnson and Ms. Wheeler said: "Several months ago, after 25 years of marriage, we decided to separate for our best interests.
"Subsequently, we agreed on the divorce and that process is under way.
"As friends, we will continue to support our four children in the coming years, we will not comment further."
