Don’t be afraid to take risks. Meghan KingIt is possible to open it up Us WeeklyAbout her brief-lived marriage Cuffe OwensShe said that she hopes to manage her relationships differently in the future.
“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,” the Real Housewives of Orange County38-year-old alum exclusively told UseOn Wednesday, September 28th, while promoting HUD App Presents: Reality of Love. “I think through that desperation, I made a rash decision to get married quickly.”
Although her marriage to President Joe Biden‘s nephew ended quickly, the former Bravo personality noted that the relationship helped her learn how to approach romance in the future.
“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,” she told Us. “It’s hard, but I cannot put them through that or myself through that again, and I won’t do it.”
The Missouri native and lawyer, who had been in love for less than a month, tied the knot in October 2021. King confirmed two months later that the couple had ended their relationship.
“I am rattled. This situation is profoundly devastating,” she wrote via Instagram in December 2021. “This is obviously not what I imagined when I made my vows — and I’m shocked and saddened by the way things turned out. I am moving forward with my children as we privately process our pain and begin to let go of shattered dreams.”
Reality star Aspen shares daughter Aspen, 5; twins Hayes, 4; and Hart, 4 with ex-husband. Jim Edmonds. The little ones participated in the ceremony, which was held at the home of Owens’ parents.
Though King acknowledged her “rash” choice to tie the knot with Owens so soon, she also claimed that he was the one who pushed for the marriage. “I didn’t wanna rush into it at all,” she told Us. “It was not me. He was all that. I never even wanted to get married again, but, like, I have such a big heart and I just want my partner to be happy.”
Now, the Say yes to the dress alum is moving on — and sharing what she’s learned about relationships on HUD App Presents: Reality of LoveCelebrity relationship coach Nicole Moore.
“Nicole and I have worked together on and off over the past few years, and she’s really helped me in my love life and helped me to work through some things that I’ve been through in my romantic life,” King explained. “And so it just made a lot of sense that when she asked me to help her with Reality of Love, I was a willing participant and I couldn’t wait to support her.”
