Gabrielle Union tells more about her first marriage which she describes as, “dysfunctional from day one.”
In a recent podcast chat ““Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard,,” the actress and author spoke about her marriage to former pro football player Chris Howard, whom she divorced in 2006 after five years of marriage.
Shepard mentioned feeling guilty about her own past infidelities and Union permitted her not to, “getting wife of the year awards” when it comes to her marriage to the former Jacksonville Jaguar player.
“In my first marriage, neither one of us felt like the marriage should get in the way of our dating,” she said. “A part of it was like keeping up with his activities, like, ‘Oh, that’s what you’re doing? You’re going to feel this one.’ And I just felt entitled to it as well.”
“Being Mary Jane” star said she “was paying all the bills. I was working my a** off and I felt like that’s what comes, the spoils of riches.”
“Like my dad before me, whoever has the most gets to do whatever the hell they want, is what I thought,” she added. “It was just dysfunctional from day one.”
