Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn Is Getting Divorced After Just 8 Months of Marriage

Madison Cawthorn, who is the youngest member of Congress, is getting a divorce after just eight months of marriage.

The 26-year-old Republican congressman and his wife Cristina have announced that they are ending their marriage. They tied the knot on April 3, 2020 in an outdoor ceremony in North Carolina.

Madison is blaming the split on “irreconcilable differences.”

“When my wife Cristina and I were engaged, I was not a member of Congress. 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 planned for,” Madison said in a statement, which was shared to Twitter by his rep.

The statement continued, “From the outset, we committed to make things work, to fight for our marriage, and seek counsel for balancing the enormity of such a transition in life. Together, we 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. We ask for privacy as we work through this privately.”

Madison, who was accused of sexual misconduct in his teenage years, has raised eyebrows throughout his candidacy and run in Congress.
