OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

According to a document filed in court about a month ago, Republican Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado and her husband Jayson have decided to divorce after spending the past two decades together.

The couple, who have four boys together, have decided to end their marriage in the midst of the anticipation that they would become grandparents while they are still in their thirties.

Their son, who is 18 years old, is going to become a parent in the following months.

After getting married to Jayson in 2006, the lawmaker, who is now 36 years old, had their oldest kid when she was just 18 years old.

The Republican woman serving her second term in the House of Representatives spent Mother’s Day taking pictures with three of her sons while her husband notably absent from the photos.

The Colorado Sun reports that she submitted the paperwork for the divorce on April 25. In the petition that she submitted to the court in Mesa County, Colorado, she stated that the marriage was “irretrievably broken.”

When the congresswoman was 16 years old and working at a quick-service restaurant, the pair first crossed paths.

She stated that the decision to break the marriage was not an easy one to make in a statement that she released.

“It is with a heavy weight on my heart that I have filed for divorce from my husband,” she wrote. “I am grateful for our years of marriage together and for our beautiful children, all of whom deserve privacy and love as we work through this process.”

Boebert added, “I’ve always been faithful in my marriage, and I believe strongly in marriage, which makes this announcement that much more difficult.”

The 36-year-old cited “truly … irreconcilable differences.”

“I do not intend to discuss this matter any further in public out of respect for our children and will continue to work hard to represent the people of Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District,” she concluded.

During a brief interview with the Daily Beast, which is a publication that leans significantly to the left, Jayson suggested that he was taken aback by the divorce filing.

However, he stated that he still loves her and that he hopes nothing but the best for her.

“The divorce is sad, I did not expect this, I love her with every bit of my heart, she has been my soul mate and she is the mother of my Children,” Jayson Boebert said via text message, according to the Daily Beast.

Mr. Boebert added, “We have been through a lot together and I just want her to be happy… So it’s whatever she wants.”

The Beast said that a process server claimed in his own court document that Jayson Boebert was upset and refused to accept the divorce papers when he was served.

It was alleged that he sent dogs after the server and was cleaning a revolver while serving, as well as that he had a “tall glass of beer” in his hand. According to a Daily Beast article, in a different instance, neighbors said that he also ran over their mailbox.

In a tweet sent out on Wednesday morning, Lauren Boebert defended her soon-to-be ex-husband from the allegations and called the process server’s version of his interactions with Jayson a “complete lie.”

“Jayson doesn’t sit around cleaning guns and he certainly doesn’t drink beer out of a glass, just as much as he doesn’t drink Bud Light,” she stated.

“Our own home security footage shows he didn’t ‘sick dogs’ on the process server. The dogs were outside when the server pulled up, they never showed aggression toward him, nor did he appear afraid of them,” she added.

The lawmaker concluded, “Our divorce is a private matter, but the misrepresentations must be addressed. Jayson deserves his privacy, not slanderous stories.

“Despite what others may say, I welcome your thoughts, and fervent, heartfelt prayers for our family.”
