According to a family friend, Two-time Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and his wife of more than 30 years, Elizabeth, have separated. The separation comes as details of John Edwards’ affair with former campaign staffer leak out in advance of a tell-all book by longtime aide Andrew Young.

Elizabeth Edwards released a statement through her publisher, Random House, that said she “is moving on with her life and wants to put this difficult chapter behind her. It was an excruciatingly painful period for her, and she no interest in rehashing the past.”
