Lysa and Art’s Marriage
Since Lysa and Art Terkeurst co-founded Proverbs 31 Ministries in 1997, they have been an open book when it comes to sharing the ups and downs of their marriage. From infidelity to empty nest syndrome, the Terkeursts have used their platform to encourage other couples by being vulnerable about their own journey.
Lysa is currently the President of Proverbs 31 Ministries and a New York Times bestselling author, while Art serves as the CEO. In 2018, they released their joint memoir Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than,Left Out, and Lonely which debuted at number four on the New York Times Best Seller list. The book discusses Lysa’s battle with anxiety and depression, as well as Art’s struggles with pornography and infidelity.
The Terkeursts live in North Carolina with their three adult daughters.
The Terkeursts’ Divorce
On September 27, 2017, Lysa Terkeurst announced on social media that she and her husband Art were divorcing after 20 years of marriage.
In a post on her blog, Terkeurst wrote that the couple had been in counseling for several months and “it became clear we were not on the same page” about the future of their relationship.
“It’s hard to walk out what you’ve been preaching for 25 years,” she continued. “It would be easier to just keep walking the path we’ve been on. But I believe with every fiber in my being God has called me to more. To love HIM more. To love others more.”
The announcement sent shockwaves through the Christian community, as the Terkeursts were well-known leaders in the fields of marriage and family ministry.
Art Terkeurst released a statement following his wife’s announcement, saying that he was “heartbroken” but that his “commitment to our kids is stronger than ever.”
Since then, both Lysa and Art have continued to work within the Christian community in various capacities. They remain active on social media and in November 2017, they launched a new podcast called “Divided We Fall.”
What Happened to the Terkeursts’ Marriage?
It’s been a little over two years since news broke that Lysa and Art TerKeurst were getting a divorce. The couple had been married for 20 years and have five children together. Since the announcement, both Art and Lysa have remarried.
Lysa is now married to Tony Massimini, and the two reside in North Carolina with her children. Art is married to Amanda Graves, and the couple lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
Where Are the Terkeursts Now?
It’s been more than two years since Lysa and Art Terkeurst announced their decision to “separate with intention” and focus on healing their marriage.
Since then, the Terkeursts have continued to live apart but have remained committed to working on their relationship. In a recent update on her blog, Lysa shared that she and Art are “in a good place” and continue to go to counseling together.
The Terkeursts seem to be taking things day by day, but their goal is still to eventually reconcile and move back in together.
What is the Terkeursts’ Current Relationship Status?
It is unknown what the current relationship status is between Lysa and Art Terkeurst. They have been married for over 25 years, but have been facing marital problems as of late. In an interview with Christianity Today, Lysa stated that they are currently in counseling and working on their marriage. However, she also said that she is not sure what the future holds for their relationship.
What Led to the Terkeursts’ Divorce?
Lysa and Art Terkeurst’s marriage wasn’t always perfect, but they always seemed to be working through their problems. That is, until 2017, when the couple announced that they were getting a divorce.
So, what led to the Terkeursts’ divorce? According to Lysa, there were a few key factors that contributed to the demise of their marriage.
First, Lysa says that she and Art grew apart over the years. “We stopped doing the things we used to do together,” she wrote in a blog post announcing the divorce. “We stopped having meaningful conversations.”
Another issue was that Lysa says she started to feel like she was living in a “pressure cooker.” She was trying to be everything to everyone — a wife, mother, businesswoman, friend — and it became too much.
“I felt like I was losing my mind,” she wrote. “I was angry all the time and taking it out on those I loved most.”
Lysa also says that she and Art had different views on marriage. While she wanted to work on their relationship, he thought it was best to end things.
“Art believes in ‘divorce as an answer,'” Lysa wrote. “I do not.”
In the end, though, Lysa says she respected Art’s decision and decided to go ahead with the divorce. The two remain friends and are committed to co-parenting their three kids.
How has the Terkeursts’ Divorce Affected Their Children?
It’s been almost a year since Lysa and Art Terkeurst announced their divorce, and the couple’s three children are still adjusting.
“It’s been really hard on them,” Lysa said in an interview with People magazine. “They’re just trying to figure out what life looks like now.”
The Terkeursts have joint custody of their children, and Lysa said they are doing their best to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible.
“We’re both committed to parenting well,” she said. “We want them to know that we’re still a family, just in a different way.”
Still, the divorce has been difficult for the children, who are all under the age of 10.
“They loved seeing us together,” Lysa said. “It was hard for them to understand why we couldn’t make it work.”
Lysa has been candid about the challenges of co-parenting, but she said she and Art are committed to doing what’s best for their children.
“We’re taking it one day at a time,” she said. “And we’re grateful for every day that we can be there for our kids.”
What is the Terkeursts’ Current Relationship with Each Other?
Lysa and Art Terkeurst’s current relationship with each other can be described as complicated. The couple announced their separation in August of 2015 after 25 years of marriage, but they have continued to work together on their business and ministry venture, Proverbs 31 Ministries. In a 2016 blog post, Lysa opened up about the challenges she and her husband have faced in their marriage, saying “It’s been the hardest thing either one of us has ever gone through.”
Despite their separation, it seems as though the Terkeursts are committed to working through their issues and remaining friends. In a joint statement released in 2018, they said, “We continue to love and respect each other and are deeply grateful for the grace God has shown us.”
What’s Next for the Terkeursts?
It’s been a little over a year since Lysa Terkeurst announced she was stepping down as President of Proverbs 31 Ministries, and many readers have been wondering what she and her husband, Art, have been up to since then.
The couple has been busy writing a new book called “The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands,” which is set to be released in early 2015. They are also continuing to work on their Marriage Life Coaching business, which they launched last year.
In addition to all that, the Terkeursts are also speaking at several events around the country this year. They will be appearing at the LifeWay Women’s Leadership Forum in Nashville in April, and later this month they will be speaking at the True Woman ’14 Conference in Indianapolis.
