13 years of marriage, 5 kids, and 3 affairs

    Newly wed couple's hands with wedding rings. I met you in May 2000 when my friend and your coworker invited us both to a restaurant grand opening. We had no idea she was setting us up to meet and we both talked about how we had thought about backing out and not going that night. Had we not gone where would our lives be now?

Frazer Nelson, the editor of generally Tory supporting magazine the Spectator, said any leadership bid by the foreign secretary would struggle to survive his various romantic dealings.

It comes amid reports numerous senior Tories are plotting to oust embattled Prime Minister Theresa May and trigger a leadership contest. Mr Johnson is among the favourites to be the next leader of the party, but Mr Nelson questioned whether he would survive the contest. He told the Mail on Sunday: It...
