Do affair partners often end up marrying? No, not very often. According to the statistics it´s rare, that secret lovers end up married.
This affair seems to be different. After a long period of flirting around, the more or less secretive pair came ever closer. In March 2016 it officially announced its union. The now firmly connected partners are the executive chairman of Alphabet Inc. and former Google-CEO, Eric Schmidt, and the Pentagon.
Schmidt was appointed as head of Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Advisory Board. This new innovation team will help to bridge the gap between the technology industry and the U.S. military. With this marriage Silicon Valley moves closer to Washingon. May the couple be happy together, but may outsiders also benefit from this happiness.
