Margaret Trudeau

Margaret Trudeau Margaret Trudeau was born on September 10, 1948. She is the former wife of the late Pierre Trudeau, the 15th Prime Minister of Canada.

Biography and Career

Margaret Trudeau was born as Margaret Joan Sinclair in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She is a daughter of Doris Kathleen and James Sinclair, a former Liberal member of the Parliament of Canada and Minister of Fisheries and Oceans. She got her degree in English literature from Simon Fraser University.

At the age of eighteen for the first time she met Pierre Trudeau, who was then Minister of Justice. Ms. Sinclair did not recognize him and she in fact thought little of their encounter, but Trudeau was captivated by thirty years younger than himself and began to pursue her.

In 1968, Trudeau elected as a prime minis ter. In 1971, after keeping their romance private the Prime Minister astonished the country by marrying the 22 year old Sinclair in a private ceremony. The couple had three children: Justin, Alexandre, and Michel.

Initially the couple appeared to have a very close and loving relationship, but the marriage soon began to fall apart. Margaret resented her husband's constant work related absences and was forced to raise her three young sons by herself. Over time, the marriage disintegrated to the point that as recounted in her book, Margaret had an affair with U.S. Senator, Ted Kennedy.

Trudeau won custody of the children and did not pay any spousal support. Margaret had a difficult time earning a living after her marriage. She wrote the book about her marriage titled Beyond Reason.

In 1984 she got officially divorced and in a short time later Margaret married Ottawa real estate developer Fried Kemper, with whom she had two children, Kyle and Alicia.

After her second marriage, Margaret virtually disappeared from the public eye. She is planning to write a book about her personal experience having bipolar disorder to be in 2010, published by HarperCollins Canada.
