New Law Requires Women To Become First Female Senator’s Wife

WASHINGTON—Calling it an important step toward ensuring that women will hold a leading role in Congress in perpetuity, the U.S. Capitol police issued a new law Monday requiring women to become the first female senator’s wife. “This change will make it easier for women to hold the highest office in the world, but will not in any way diminish the importance of their role as first wives,” said Senate police chief Robert D. Dreyfus, adding that the new law also requires female senators to serve as first wives to their husbands for life. “In order for women to continue their position as first wives for the rest of their lives, they must successfully complete their husbands’ legal duties and also make the ceremony of their marriage to the Senate’s altar, which will be publicly visible to all and which will be attended by all male senators.” Dreyfus noted that the law would not affect the status of female senators who have already been married to their husbands.
