Do anything you can to keep this woman because I don’t know what would happen if she was gone. He would be a wreck. … [Kortnie]My children have known my parents for the past three years.

King for now is ruled out of getting married again.

“What I learned about myself in my recent marriage was [that] I was in a position of, like, almost desperation to have a partner, and to have someone to raise these children with and bounce ideas off of and to share in beautiful moments and help shoulder the burden of more difficult moments,” she said. “I think through that desperation, I made a rash decision to get married quickly. … That taught me a big lesson that I need to figure out how to be good within myself and my children, our own little family unit. It’s hard, but I cannot put them through that or myself through that again, and I won’t do it.”
