Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie Biden, is dating her brother-in-law, Hunter Biden, who is married. Former Vice President Joe Biden, Dr. Jill Biden and other members of the family approve of the romantic relationship. According to Page Six, Hallie and Hunter, both 47, started dating after Hunter's older brother Beau died on May 30, 2015 at the age of 46 from brain cancer. Beau served as Delaware’s attorney general from 2007 to 2015.

Hunter Biden's statement

Hunter Biden is the younger son of former Vice President Joe Biden. Hunter and Kathleen got married in 2002, the same year that Beau and Hallie got married.

Beau died in 2015. Five months after his brother's death, Hunter separated from his wife. Hunter and Kathleen have three daughters. Beau had two children with Hallie. Hunter confirmed the romantic relationship on Wednesday, March 1 when he submitted a statement that he and his sister-in-law are extremely lucky to have found the love and support from each other and from family members who support them.

Family's statement

Former Vice President Joe Biden said in a statement to the New York Post that both he and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden have given their blessings to Hunter and Hallie's relationship. He considers the family lucky that his son and his daughter-in-law found each other after sadness. After the former Delaware attorney general's death, his father was devastated.

He used his pain and suffering over Beau's death as a reason not to run for president in 2016. All three of the Biden men were very close. Perhaps it was because Joe, Beau, and Hunter suffered a great family tragedy. In 1972, when Joe's first wife and his 13-month-old daughter died in a car crash.

Social media comments

Some people on social media describe Hunter and Hallie's relationship as "weird." They are surprised that they consider themselves lucky to have found each other when Hunter is still married.

Some people wonder how Joe Biden could bless this relationship when Hunter is legally married to someone else.
