Despite knowing each other since school, Missy Rothstein and Bam Margera started dating when they met again in the mid-2000s.

Bam proposed to Missy in the Cartier store in 2006. In an interview, Margera stated that he thought it was a good sign when his diamond ring perfectly fit her finger. 

According to the New York Times, the couple had gotten their matching tattoos on their lips on the day they had signed their marriage license at X-Treme Ink Tattoo Parlor near their hometown in West Chester. 

Additionally, she tattooed 313 because it was the area code where they had purchased the wedding ring.

Their wedding took place at the Loews Hotel in downtown Philadelphia on February 3, 2007. ‘Bam Unholy Union’ on MTV also aired their wedding. After their marriage in 2007, the couple enjoyed their married life for three years. 

In 2010, their relationship began to deteriorate. A significant reason for the split was Missy’s ex-husband’s late-night partying habits at the house, which made her life difficult. 

Melissa Rothstein would also have to rearrange her house before going to work the next day.

It was stressful, causing a rift. 

She even called 911 once to help her husband, who had been drinking for four days straight. Finally, her ex-husband suggested Missy move to another city and house due to constant fights. 

The couple was last spotted together during a funeral held for their close friend and Bam’s co-star Ryan Dunn. They ended their five-year marriage in 2012.
