This proposal of the renewal of our vows means so much more to us. Life has tried to break us so many times over .

You did that !! It’s a damn glacier on my finger.
Ne-Yo had filed for divorce saying that he and Smith’s union was “irretrievably broken.”
“It’s slowly but surely becoming public knowledge that myself and my wife have decided to go ahead and get a divorce,” Ne-Yo said during an interview on Private Talk With Alexis Texas podcast. “It’s not a sad thing, it’s more of us realizing — long story short, I’m never gonna talk bad about her. I’m not that person. There’s nothing bad to say about her. She’s a fantastic woman. She’s the mother of my children and she’s always gonna be that and I will always respect her.”
They had tied the knot in 2016 and welcomed two children sons, Shaffer Jr. and Roman.
By June, they were on better terms and he asked a judge to dismiss the case without prejudice so he can file again if things start to go down hill again, Bossip reported. During a chat on The Talk, he revealed that being in quarantine was a “blessing” and it helped them fix their marriage.
“It allowed me to lock back in with my wife,” he said. “Before the quarantine happened we were definitely talking divorce. The quarantine kind of forced us to sit still block out all of the noise from the world. You know, the world can get very loud and we tend to let the world’s opinion mean more in certain situations than it should…It made us sit down and have those difficult conversations, those uncomfortable conversations where everybody is being blatantly, painfully, brutally honest.”
Congratulations to the beautiful couple for successfully fixing their union!
