Pete Buttigieg is one of America’s most famous couples.
But while he and his wife were together for nearly 20 years, the couple had a tumultuous relationship.
In fact, Buttigigieg said in an interview with ABC News in 2013, he didn’t even know his wife was a lesbian until she married him.
So, what caused this long-distance relationship to end?
His wife, Peter Lorres, had the same last name as the actress who played his mother on “Cheers.”
The “Chesterfield” star was in the process of moving to Los Angeles at the time, but it wasn’t long before his wife’s family found out.
The family reportedly called the cops on Lorres’ parents after they discovered that they were raising a son with the woman’s name.
Peter Lorret’s family called the police because they found out his wife had a lesbian lover, according to ABC News.
When asked about the issue, Lorre said that the family “didn’t feel comfortable coming out.”
“We just didn’t want to put up with it,” he said.
“We were going to try to be very careful about it.
We just weren’t comfortable with it.”
He added, “We didn’t really have a relationship and we didn’t feel that we were able to live as a couple.”
Peter Lorrets wife, Mary, who had the last name Buttig, is a lesbian and had been married to her wife for more than 20 years.
Peter and Mary Buttiggers children are now teenagers.
Lorre, a father of four, and Buttigigs children have a daughter named Katie.
In a 2014 interview with People magazine, Peter told PEOPLE that his marriage to Mary was “like a love marriage,” and that he and Mary “were very good friends.”
He said they had “some very good days” and that “we were both very happy and we were together.”
He went on to say that he “wasn’t as supportive of his wife as I am,” saying that Mary would “say, ‘I don’t want you to have a lesbian relationship.’
When asked what he thinks about the fact that his wife and his children are teenagers, Peter said, “I just think that’s a shame and it’s just really sad.” “
Lorres said that Mary Buttigs “just wanted to be in a relationship with somebody that she knew that she was going to be able to get a good relationship out of.
“When asked what he thinks about the fact that his wife and his children are teenagers, Peter said, “I just think that’s a shame and it’s just really sad.
“Lorre told PEOPLE in 2014 that he was “very proud” of his relationship with Mary ButtIGieg, and that it “was a very good marriage.
