Meghan King She says that her marriage was to Cuffe Biden OwensThis seemed to be a smart idea.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star told Jeff Lewis in an interview for his Sirius XM’s Jeff Lewis Live that her union with her now estranged husband Cuffe felt like an arranged marriage.

Meghan said she decided to marry Cuffe—who is also President Joe Biden’s cousin—because she was “so ready for a partner” and needed help taking care of her three kids she shares with ex Jim EdmondsAspen King Edmonds, 5, Hart Edmonds, 3, Hayes Edmonds, 3.

She stated, “I was looking for some assistance and wanted to form a partnership.” “And so, you know, he said all the right things and I and the families were a good, good fit. It was almost like an organized marriage, as he grew up much the same way I did.

But the arrangement didn’t last long. Meghan announced she would be splitting from Cuffe after two months of marriage in an Instagram Story on Dec. 27, saying, “I’ve been asked by many outlets and individuals to comment on the state of my marriage. This is making me very upset. It is a very difficult situation. This is obviously not what I imagined when I made my vows—and I’m shocked and saddened by the way things turned out.” The woman is seeking annulment.
