“Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans spoke candidly to US Weekly about her and David Eason’s brief separation and how they reconciled to make their marriage better.

MAKING HER MARRIAGE WORK
"A lot of our disagreements were just bickering and arguing. To me, I felt like we can work through that, especially if we went to marriage counseling and we went to parenting counseling before we’d been to marriage counseling," she said.
The 29-year-old also disclosed that she and Eason are doing much better now. “I’m glad we got over it. Things are a lot better,” she told the publication.

Evans admitted that, at first, she was not sure about her marriage and that now she is secure within her union. In terms of how she sees their future together, she said it is forever.
Reason being that they have been getting along for a while more than before while adding that it is great. At the time, amid their split, a source told the outlet that it had been a long time coming.
TROUBLE IN PARADISE
“Things have been bad even when they look good on the surface,” the insider revealed back in October 2019. According to the source, Eason was on his good behavior when he appeared before the court and even cleaned up to prove himself to get custody of the kids.
However, when it was all over, he went back to his old self. According to the outlet, Evans announced their separation on October 31 that same year. The pair share a 4-year-old daughter named Ensley.
THEIR RELATIONSHIP TIMELINE
Evans and Eason got married in 2017, and their relationship has gone through a rollercoaster ride over the years. The couple met back in 2015, and she announced her pregnancy the following year in August.
They welcomed their little girl on January 24, 2017. According to the publication, they both have children from their previous relationships. Following the arrival of their baby girl, Eason popped the big question in February that year.
Before walking down the aisle, the duo purchased their first home together in North Carolina in March that year, and Evans announced the news on social media. They then said their "I dos" later that year in their home.
CUSTODY OF HER SON
Before her marriage to Eason, Evans was engaged to Nathan Griffith, with whom she shares her 6-year-old son Kaiser. Following their split, the former couple reached a custody agreement over their child.
According to E! Online, the twosome managed to work out their parental rights outside of court. Evans reportedly retains primary physical custody while Griffith gets him every other weekend.
Last year in November, she revealed that her little boy has an infected abscess in his groin. According to People, at the time, she urged her fans to keep her son in their prayers following the diagnosis. Evans is also a mom to Jace, 11, whom she shares with ex Andrew Lewis.
