Brendan has been married and divorced before, just like Tayshia
Brendan got married in his early twenties to his high school sweetheart.
Brendan says their families were very close and there was no cheating, abuse or addiction that broke up his marriage. The former couple apparently just fell out of love.
"I didn't know who I was without her, and she didn't really know who she was without me," Brendan has explained. "We did counseling and it was definitely hard for me knowing that I failed to a certain extent."
Brendan says his family wasn't thrilled about the divorce and so he tried to stick it out for a while but the woman didn't want children and so that was a dealbreaker for him and they went their separate ways.
