Apple News led me to an update on a scandal from 1997: Mary Kay Letourneau and Vili Fualaau Are Splitting Up After Reconciliation: 'It Just Isn't Working' Teacher Mary Kay Letourneau was married to Vili Fualaau, who she first took up with when she was 34 and he was a 12-year-old in her 6th grade class. They had two children together and she ended up in jail. When Mary Kay got out of jail, they married and have been together ever since. They filed for a separation in 2017 but reconciled and stayed together. Now People Magazine says they are headed for divorce. In the article, People quotes a source as saying "They really gave it the old college try." But given Vili's age when they started "dating," I think it should have said "They really gave it the old middle school try." Definitely one of the weirder gossip stories.
