Trump Ally Rep. Madison Cawthorn To Divorce Wife, Cristina, After 8 Months Of Marriage
Right-wing Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-North Carolina) and his wife are divorcing after less than a year of marriage, with the former citing his job in Congress as part of the reason for the decision.
“When my wife Cristina and I were engaged, I was not a member of Congress,” Cawthorn, 26, said in a statement posted by his spokesman on Wednesday. “I felt called to serve and we both agreed that I should run. Our victory was unprecedented. But overnight, our lives changed. That change has been both hectic and difficult. It’s neither the pace nor the lifestyle we had planned for.
He said the two, married in April, were “committed to make things work” but “realized that balance was not attainable and that we had irreconcilable differences between us.”
“While it was an enormously difficult decision, Cristina and I have mutually decided to divorce,” Cawthorn said. “We ask for privacy as we work through this privately.”

On April 3rd of 2014 my life changed. A car accident put me in a wheelchair and dashed my hopes for the future. On April 3rd of 2021 my life has once again changed. Marrying Cristina Bayardelle, now Cristina Cawthorn is the greatest honor, privilege and adventure of my life. pic.twitter.com/bqmtAUbsIS
