Rep. Cawthorn and wife to divorce less than a year after marriage

North Carolina Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn said on Wednesday that he and his wife are getting divorced less than a year after their marriage, according to a statement.

“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,” Cawthorn said in a statement on Twitter.

“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 added.

“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,” he continued.

Cawthorn was married on Apr. 3 as noted in a post that he said “changed my life.”

The divorce brings a sad end to the brief marriage as Cawthorn seeks to serve his state and the nation during an important time.
