Meghan King and Cuffe Biden Owens split two months after getting married.
Based on Meghan’s Instagram Story on December 27, “I’ve been asked by many outlets and individuals to comment on the state of my marriage. I am rattled. This situation is profoundly devastating. This is obviously not what I imagined when I made my vows—and I’m shocked and saddened by the way things turned out.”
“At this time I ask for your grace and gentle kindness as I navigate this labyrinth of grief with my family.”
Her message came two days after Page Six first reported that their whirlwind romance has finally ended.
Though it wasn’t clear when they first started seeing each other, she made her relationship with President Joe Biden’s nephew Instagram official in September. Back then she posted a photo of the two of them with their arms wrapped around each other and captioned it, “Trying my best to avoid any cheesy introductions like ‘my main squeeze’… so just meet my man. [red heart emoji].”
Two weeks after, the Real Housewives of Orange County star and Cuffe announced that they were married. The intimate wedding was held at his parents’ home in Pennsylvania with the president and First Lady Jill Biden gracing the ceremony.
Meghan told Brides, “We connected on a dating app, texted for a day or two, then spent five straight hours on the phone the first time we spoke.”
She added, “By the time that call ended, Cuffe was booked and packed for a flight to St. Louis that took off in about eight hours. Within a week, we were back on the East Coast, meeting his family, and starting to plan our future together. We didn’t leave each other’s side for weeks.”- Advertisement -
According to the reality star, she and the attorney knew instantly that they wanted to tie the knot.
She explained to the magazine, “Our wedding was about two things for us. Our love for and commitment to each other, and our family—each of our families, and the new very large and very tight family that we were bonding together by getting married. That’s it.”
The couple also shared a piece of advice for future newlyweds in a joint statement that read, “Don’t let anyone make it about anything other than your love for each other and the commitment you’re making to each other. And, do it on your terms. If you’re lucky enough to have two families that ‘get it’ like we do, you’ve got everything you need.”
