Find a few details here which we’ve gathered from the web.
Meet David Jessop, Robyn Brown Ex
David Jessop and Robyn Brown married on 8 June 1999 when the bride was 22 years old, according to Ravalli Republic Newspaper. She opened up about experiences related to her first marriage in April 2021 episode. She said in the episode, “I was married before, and in that marriage, there was a lot of fighting and there was a lot of pain.”
Robyn added, “I promised myself as I came out of my divorce, I was like, ‘If I ever marry again, I’m just going to be more cautious and more careful.’ ” Robyn also compared her current marriage to her current husband Kody. Robyn explained in confessional, “Let’s just say that it’s rare that I fight with him. I probably could name five real fights in the last 10, 11 years we’ve been together. Probably five real fights. Maybe not even that.”
The marriage lasted for 8 years and they shared three children named Dayton, Aurora, and Breanna during that period. “Just to clarify, I do not tolerate my kids getting bullied,” she tweeted at the time of the episode. “I ended my first marriage because of abuse. My kids come first ALWAYS.”
Robyn said that during the period of the marriage she had to endure different abuses; financial abuse (leaving her in debt, not buying the baby’s cribs, not providing) emotional abuse, and even come short of saying sexual and physical abuse as well.
Robyn also accused her husband of not seeing their children or paying child support. She explained their reasons for divorcing in the Brown family memoir, Becoming Sister Wives- The Story of an Unconventional Marriage.
“I tried my hardest to make the marriage work, both for our own sake and for the sake of the three children my ex-husband and I had together. But what started off as unstable disintegrated into something destructive. After seven and a half years of marriage, we separated. A year and a half later, we were divorced,” Robyn penned. “Both my marriage and its collapse were incredibly difficult for me. I suffered a lot of pain and hardship. I had been badly mistreated and misled by my ex-husband. While I knew that he was the source of a lot of my grief, part of me still believed that I was a failure because I hadn’t been able to make my relationship work.”
After the divorce, Robyn met Kody Brown at a church dance and soon they began courting. Kody and Robyn got hitched spiritually on May 22, 2010. Then, Meri Brown granted Kody’s divorce so that he could wed Robyn officially and then seek to adopt Robyn’s children. Kody and Robyn were lawfully wed on December 11, 2014.
