Jenelle Evans has rekindled her relationship. The 28-year-old former Teen Mom 2 star updated her fans in a recent YouTube Q&A. When one fan asked if she and her estranged husband, David Eason, were back together, she replied, "Yes. Me and him are deciding to work things out right now and we're taking it slowly. Yes, I know I came back to North Carolina. Yes, I'm living here permanently now."
"A lot of things have changed. Me and him have just decided to try to remain positive no matter what and if we have an issue, we really need to talk it out," she explained. "I want to tell you guys that David has never abused the children, he's never abused me. I've always had disagreements and those would turn into big arguments. This is the reason why I decided to go back home and work out my relationship because ultimately it's for my family."
Jenelle shares 3-year-old daughter, Ensley, with David. She had been living with two of her three children in Tennessee, but relocated back to her home in North Carolina where David was living because she said she couldn't afford both rent on an apartment and mortgage payments.
Noting that their relationship is "going pretty smooth," Jenelle admitted that she was the first to reach out and ask David if he was willing to work on their marriage.
"I think things got so bad into our relationship where I was so unhappy that I needed to come out of it, and I felt like the only way to come out of it was if I were to distance myself," she explained. "So I distanced myself for a little bit and I realized that's not what I wanted and I needed to work out my marriage. And I didn't want another failed marriage. And I just wanted the kids to be happy."
She added that she and her kids are currently quarantined in their North Carolina home with David.
Jenelle and David tied the knot in September 2017, but their relationship was muddled with issues. Jenelle's ex, Nathan Griffith, accused David of abusing his son with Jenelle, Kaiser. David was also fired from Teen Mom 2 after posting homophobic tweets.
