Weiner was considered a rising star in the Democratic Party until the former NY congressman admitted in 2011 that he had been sexting multiple women and was forced to resign.
Ms Abedin announced she was separating from her husband a month before the FBI began investigating Weiner in 2016 when it was reported he asked a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina to undress on camera.
Abedin became ensnared in the Clinton email probe.
Abedin filed for divorce last May just hours after Weiner, a former NY congressman, pleaded guilty to sexting with a minor, a crime for which he is now serving two years behind bars in a MA federal prison.
Leading divorce attorney Michael Stutman, who is not involved in the case, said the former couple must agree on how to divvy up their assets and share custody of their 6-year-old son before bringing a second case. "In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have made a decision to finalize their divorce swiftly and privately", lawyer Charles Miller said. After initially denying that he took the photo, Weiner was forced to resign from Congress.
Abedin publicly forgave her husband, who finished fifth in the Democratic primary.
The following day, Abedin announced she was separating from her husband.
Weiner, a disfavored government official once thought about a main Democratic figure, is right now serving a 21-month sentence in MA for sending lascivious photos to a minor.
