Rupert Murdoch and Wendy Deng to quietly split

One of the most famous December-May marriages in recent times has apparently come to an end. The 14-year match-up of media magnate Rupert Murdoch and his elegant young wife Wendi Deng will be ended quietly in New York's no-fault divorce court with few details it seems from either side. For its prospects, Mr. Murdoch's third marriage has lasted longer than  most such unions and seemed to reveal a mature meeting of minds between the partners. Ms Deng's casual introduction to Murdoch on an aircraft has been the stuff of dreams for many women of her modest background. Whether they happened to sit together by design or accident it is said that Ms. Deng charmed her older seat mate sufficiently during the flight that he was genuinely hooked when the plane landed. For her part, Wendi Deng adapted well to the privileged life of her tycoon husband, giving him two daughters and conducting herself with loyalty and dutiful decorum. Chicago Tribune
