Kailyn Lowry Gets Painfully Real About Her Divorce From Javi Marroquin

The truth comes out! After nearly a year of speculation about what caused Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin to call it quits on their marriage, the Teen Mom 2 star has gotten candid about their breakup.


Kail has penned yet another tell-all book about her life, titled Hustle & Heart, and apparently the mom of two spends a good portion of it detailing her years of marriage with Javi.

"I thought I had my fairytale ending on September 4, 2012 -- the day I said, 'I do,'" she wrote. "I had Javi, my knight in shining armor, and we had big plans to build a castle together where we'd raise our children in a stable, two-parent home."

Life doesn't always turn out like we plan, though, and Kail believes that Javi's jealousy, lack of support, and controlling tendencies led to the breakdown of her marriage. She revealed that she had wanted to open a blow-dry bar, but that every time she brought it up, he was "downright unsupportive," and would knock it down over and over.

He also had a difficult time trusting her with her relationships with other people, other guys in particular. "It became clearer and clearer how little my husband trusted me," she confessed.

She also said that she got frustrated when he demanded things like unlocking her phone, or calling her "constantly" when she was out with friends to make she sure she wasn't "doing anything 'sneaky' behind his back."

"I had done nothing to make him doubt me," she lamented. "I never lied, never went behind his back and I was never unfaithful. For some reason, he was convinced otherwise."

Kail expressed her thoughts on divorce in general by writing, "Love should always mean honesty, respect and kindness. But love doesn't mean staying in a relationship that doesn't make you happy anymore."

She also shared these wise words -- "Love takes work, yes. But there must be rewards for that work. There must be progress."
