Ladies, René Préval is no longer a bachelor.
Haiti’s twice-divorced president is now married.
In a private 11 a.m. ceremony Sunday, Préval married Elisabeth Débrosse Delatour at Delatour’s home in Furcy, a suburb of Port-au-Prince.
Delatour, a widow and mother of two, was married to Leslie Delatour, the former governor of Haiti’s central bank. She also is one of Préval’s economic advisors.
About 50 close family members and friends attended the low-key nuptials. He wore a white suit, she a beige dress and hat.
Préval began his second presidential term in 2006 as a single man. This is the second time he has married while in office. During his first presidential mandate, he married Jerry Benoit at the palace, also in a low-key ceremony.
Préval, 65, who is entering the final year of his second presidential mandate, is taking a two-day honeymoon with his 47-year-old bride. He returns to work at the presidential place on Wednesday.
