Congresswoman Lauren Boebert Announces Divorce, Citing Irreconcilable Differences
Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has made headlines by filing for divorce from her husband, Jayson, after a lengthy 15-year marriage.
The dissolution papers were filed in Mesa County, Colorado, and Boebert expressed the heaviness in her heart while making the difficult decision.
She emphasized her gratitude for the years they spent together and their beautiful children, stressing that privacy and love are essential during this challenging process.
Addressing the public, Boebert revealed that she has always been faithful in her marriage, underscoring her strong belief in the institution.
The congresswoman emphasized that the decision to divorce is based on irreconcilable differences and clarified that she would refrain from discussing the matter further to protect their children.
Boebert reassured her constituents that she would continue working diligently to represent Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Jayson, Boebert’s estranged husband, allegedly confronted a process server who attempted to deliver the divorce papers last month.
Reportedly, he engaged in profanity-laden exchanges while cleaning a gun and drinking a beer.
Boebert and Jayson tied the knot in 2006 when she was just 18 years old. Their relationship began when they met four months prior, and they even attempted to get married in Las Vegas but were turned away due to age restrictions.
The couple later founded Shooters Grill in 2013, a unique gun-themed restaurant where even the wait staff openly carried firearms. They are anticipating their first grandchild’s arrival, as their 17-year-old son, Tyler, is expecting a child.
This divorce filing marks a significant moment in Boebert’s personal life. The congresswoman, known for her staunch conservative views and alignment with fellow controversial figure Marjorie Taylor Greene, entered Congress in 2021.
She made waves by heckling President Joe Biden during a State of the Union address and was involved in a standoff during House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s election.
Despite a narrow victory in the 2022 election, Boebert faces a potential rematch with Democrat Adam Frisch in 2024.
Boebert’s decision to file for divorce has garnered attention, highlighting her struggles amidst her political career.
As the situation unfolds, her constituents and the public will watch closely to see how this impacts her work as Colorado’s 3rd District congresswoman.
