Here's an icenetwork article on Weaver/Poje, facilitated, we can be sure, by Skate Canada:
The platonic passion of Weaver & Poje
In the States, eligible figure skating partnerships are allowed to date, marry and have a romance with each other. In Canada, not so.* Until you have retired, you may not know your partner in the biblical sense.**
This article describes in detail how the Weaver and Poje families spend every Xmas Eve and Christmas day together, breakfast together, midnight mass together, and also works in how Weaver and Poje share a house (platonically).***
On this blog one commentator scoffed when I cited Weaver & Poje as at first having insisted they were platonic. This comment informed the blog that everyone knew it was bullshit and nobody cares about them anyway (as I remember - I have not double checked yet).
The tone (not to mention my own impression) was that the cat had been out of the bag as to Weaver & Poje's real status for some time.
When the hell did it crawl back in?
Is it strategy? We all know Scott and Tessa's success and popularity derives from their relationship status, not their figure skating. Maybe Weaver & Poje are throwing down.
I'd suspect it could be pandering to religious conservatives in Canada - people who don't believe in pre-marital sex, but come on. Not to mention that theory is contradicted by aggressive image-messaging letting fans know that figure skaters are getting it on outside marriage plenty, just not with their skating partners.
*The law prohibiting intra-partner Canadian figure skating romance was enacted in 2007 and is called the Dube Davison law.
**Skate Canada is obsessed with gay stuff so maybe they took the concept of "plays for our team" "doesn't play for our team" too literally.
*** So you see, it is totally possible to live together, share everything together including holidays, travel to be with each other, and vacation together, but NOT BE A COUPLE.
Are Kaitlyn and Andrew just taking one for the(ir) team(mates) - Scott and Tessa? Creating validity via their own story - back door messaging as it were?
Hard to figure it's for their own sake or privacy protection, seeing as - as the blog comment pointed out - when everyone believed they WERE a couple, nobody except a few random fans gave a shit.
