Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans’ relationship
Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans met for the first time at the CMC Awards in Australia in 2016. They began dating the same year, got engaged on Christmas, and married in 2017. Feel Your Way Through, Ballerini’s poetry book was published last year, in which she discussed how her parents’ divorce influenced her relationships and beliefs on marriage. In an interview with People, she said that she would never marry and characterized her parents’ divorce as “very nasty and drawn-out.”
She continued, saying:
“For a long time, I simply saw their marriage as their divorce.” As I grew older, I was able to talk to them both about their marriage, and pre-divorce, and recognized that there was beauty and love there at some time. That made me know I could locate it.”
She did, however, admit that marriage was a fantasy that may just work. Kelsea said that she and Morgan went to treatment jointly and separately when discussing the advantages of counseling. She said that it was crucial for them because of their busy and unusual lifestyles, which cause them to spend little time together.
