Tragedy In Relationship - Lost Former Husband To Death
Elise Jordan, who is an MSNBC Political Analyst, was previously married to the household name in the world of journalism, Michael Hastings.
They were married for two years before Elise lost Michael in a car accident.
The couple had met back in 2010 in Kabul when Elise was there on a freelancing assignment for the magazine called Marie Claire. Michael had visited Kabul for his McChrystal article.
The pair had an immediate connection and began dating right on. Not long after the pair began dating, they became engaged. After dating for six months, Michael asked Elise to marry him to which she affirmed the proposal.
Soon, the couple exchanged the wedding vows in a low-key ceremony.
By 2011, the couple were happily married and enjoying their moments together. The duo remained intact for two years until their relationship was shadowed by the inevitable.

In 2013, Elise lost the love of her life, her husband to a car accident. In June of the same year, Michael, at the age of 33, faced a fiery car crash resulting his death.
A day before the accident, on 17 June, Michael wrote a note to the staff at BuzzFeed in which he asked the editors to be careful as his friends were being interviewed by the F.B.I.
The very next day, there was news that his Mercedes crashed into a tree while he was driving at a very high speed in Los Angeles. Michael's death came as a big blow for Elise.
Even though Michael's death was rather speculated as a murder by his fans, Elise issued a statement revealing that she believed that there was no bad blood involved.
Honoring her husband, Elise published her husband's last novel, The Last Magazine on the anniversary of his death.
Found Love Again, Blissfully Married With Husband
Despite facing the tragic loss, Elise did not give up on love. She gave another chance to marriage and finally found someone who loves her dearly. Elise is now married to Mike Hogan who is a Vanity Fair digital director.
The couple tied the wedding knot back in September 2017, at a small "bureaucratic-chic, 90-second ceremony" held at the New York City Clerk's office.
The downtown Manhattan marriage tied the couple into a longterm commitment which can only end with the death of one of them or a divorce.
