    Martyn And Chrissy Met In a Dating App

    In the year 2006, Martyn came across his future wife through an online dating app. The two soon reached out to each other through email. In the meantime, while Eaden was a residence of Sheffield, his then-online girlfriend Metz was residing in Los Angeles.

    After several months of talking via email, the Sheffield native decided to meet his lady love in person and he decided to visit Los Angeles. They remained in a relationship for a year before tying the knot in 2008 but sadly, their marriage didn’t last more than a half decade.

    Details On Martyn And His Former Spouse’s Divorce

    The couple were already living separately for a year before filing for a divorce. Martyn who filed a petition for the dissolution of his marriage with Chrissy on Nov 12, 2014, citing irreconcilable differences, had registered their date of separation as January 31, 2013.

    While going through divorce procedures, Eaden’s ex-wife had asked for spousal support but he requested the court to cancel it by showing his monthly income as $1,600 a month and his wife’s $2,000 per month. In addition to that, he also appealed for his 2010 Honda Accord and Wells Fargo bank account.

    Though Martyn acted aggressively at the time, Chrissy wanted to solve the matter peacefully. So, she didn’t fight for anything instead she calmly accepted all the terms and conditions set by her ex-partner. They had an amicable divorce on December 11, 2015.

    What Was The Reason Behind Their Separation?

    Initially, it was unknown why Martyn separated from his super bubbly wife. But some years later, it was revealed that it all happened due to the couple’s exactly opposite nature and their lifestyle.

    In her 2018 memoir This Is Me, the Breakthrough actress stated that Eaden is an introverted and reserved kind of person while she and her family are extremely loud and outgoing. The differences came with this.

    And it added more fuel when Chrissy became more occupied with her Overeating Anonymous meetings. At the same time, Martyn got busy hiking with his female colleague which aroused jealousy and insecurity in Chrissy.

    After the couple’s visit to Eaden’s parents in 2013, they finally decided to divorce. Recalling the time, Chrissy remembered herself asking her hubby if he wanted to continue the marriage. In return, Martyn had said

    ‘Everything is about you. Chrissy, you are as narcissistic as you are selfish. From the beginning, everything has been about you.’

    Martyn’s reply was like a slap for Chrissy but she resolved the issue with her first hubby delicately.

    Martyn’s Ex-Wife Said, He Is An Angel From Heaven

    We’re just not the right fit,’ But I love him, and I’m always checking in on him. I am still working on being a better ex-wife than I was a wife.

    Not only that but during her appearance on RuPaul’s show, she talked about Martyn and said,

    I was in a marriage that like he’s an angel from the heavens but I knew that wasn’t right and he knew it wasn’t right.

    Chrissy also gave credit to her ex-partner Martyn for who she is today and for developing trust in herself which she hadn’t before.
