Kristin revealed that there were issues with their relationship before they even got married — and that she canceled their wedding entirely at one point.

“I called off the engagement for the same reason I got a divorce — same reasons, I should say,” she said. “I guess if there’s any takeaway from that, it’s that you can’t ignore red flags, people don’t change, and you gotta trust your gut.”

Kristin also said that she’s generally hesitant to publicly talk about what, specifically, was wrong in their marriage for the sake of their children.

“If you and I didn’t have microphones in front of us, I’d fucking tell you,” she said, “but that’s their dad and my oldest googles us now and I just want to be very careful.”

“It was toxic,” she said regarding their marriage as a whole. “Period, end of story. That’s all I kinda need to say.”

“I remember always asking my mom, ‘But how am I going to know?’ and she would just be like, ‘You’ll just know,'” she recalled. “And I did, I just kinda knew. It’s the scariest thing, it’s also the saddest thing. I mean, it’s so many emotions but it can also be the best thing.”

“I was really unhappy, I mean, and that was the bottom line. I was in an unhealthy relationship and so that, to me, is not worth it.”
