Melania Trump Donald Trump Ends Commuter Marriage Update: The US president Donald Trump and first lady’s commuter marriage appears to be over, as the family has united under one roof again.
First lady Melania Trump and son Barron, 11, moved into the White House Sunday 11th June 2017 after spending the first several months of President Trump’s presidency residing in their Trump Tower penthouse in New York City.
“Looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home!” Melania Trump tweeted Sunday from her official @FLOTUS account. An accompanying photograph featured a view of the Washington Monument from a window in the White House.

Her communications director Stephanie Grisham confirmed the Melania Trump Donald Trump Ends Commuter Marriage, tweeting, “It’s official! @FLOTUS & Barron have made the move to DC! #WelcomeHome.”
It is unusual for the first lady and the president to live apart during any stretch of the presidency, much less in its infancy. The Washington Post reported it appeared “unprecedented” and described the decision as flouting “the most basic of all first lady traditions.”
After Trump’s inauguration in January, Melania Trump and Barron remained in New York so the 11-year-old could finish out the school year at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He will transfer to the private St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Maryland for the coming year.
Melania said after the election in November, when she first announced she would remain in New York:
“My husband is traveling all the time.”
“Barron needs somebody as a parent, so I am with him all the time.”
Indeed, Melania has scarcely been seen at the White House since Trump’s presidency began. April’s Easter Egg Roll, which she co-hosted, arguably marked her most high-profile appearance in Washington since the inauguration.
Many think that will likely change, particularly because it will be more difficult for her to remain unseen while living in Washington, D.C.
