As Valerie Trierweiler discovered recently there is no tougher position in public life than being the partner or spouse of a high-profile politician.
Paul Bradford is in fairness a somewhat different political creature to Ms Trierweiler, but, the status of Lucinda Creighton as the uncrowned queen of the Reform Alliance means a great deal more attention is now being paid to the man seen to be the new queen's consort and chief consigliore.
It is perhaps ironic that in Leinster House a man has finally become a victim of sexism, even if it is of the reverse variant.
