I am almost weirded out by how absolutely distraught I am over this.  Like, never in a million billion years would I have guessed they would break up. NEVER.  They genuinely seemed to love and support each other and she is SO close with his family too…it just absolutely blows my mind!! And I REALLY liked Billy.  He was one of the blogger husbands who seemed so awesome so WTF!!!!!!!!!!!

 

What the heck though, man…her sister gets a divorce, now she's getting a divorce…her sister's came so out of the blue too!!

I am with most of you that I am genuinely surprised and saddened about this.  I feel almost too emotionally invested.

That being said, I am amazed at the detective work that went into this.  Every day, I am wowed at what you can find on the internet, but mostly at the GIFs that people find.

Well, her sister got remarried in like a month, so there's hope for Janae yet!

Seriously though, I agree with other hams who say that you can't tell what's really going on behind closed doors. This just proves that everything Janae writes on her blog is utter bullshit.

I know the Jacobs personally and Billy is a scumbag. He has been cheating on Janae for a long time and using her for her money. I'm so glad she's through with him. Please respect her privacy and simply pray for her and Brooke. She's an amazing person as we all know!

She will never reveal what prompted the split and though I am so, so curious about it, I don't think we can expect her to. Obviously it's personal and obviously it's still fresh.

I doubt she can avoid the topic of Billy altogether – people will definitely keep questioning her, particularly when Brooke's birthday rolls around (there are already questions in her comments). Who knows, she may start moderating them, if she isn't already.

Pretty sure she'll say "Billy and I are no longer together. I still love him, wish him the best yada yada yada, but things happen." Something along those lines.

Man. I keep posting about it because I can't believe how hard it's hitting me. And it's feeding the pessimist in me that doesn't believe marriage works out most of time.

I was just thinking about how easy it would be for him to be a cheater since he's always "working so hard at law school."  Welp, thanks for the info- down with Billy Jacobs!hammer

Something SERIOUS must have happened…and it must have happened really quickly.  I don't know what, but I know Janae, and she would not give up easily on marriage.

Whoa! So… was it with a guy? Cause my gaydar went off so hard every time I saw a picture of that guy.. can't believe you cats who think otherwise. And Janae seems like a nice girl, I'm sure she can do better than him, if he is a cheating, using, scumbag :( I just don't know how she keeps posting about dessert and amusement parks at a time like this, but I hope that just means she's really strong :/

Hm, I'm skeptical if you're legit or not, but if you are, damn that's awful.

Sorry that I assume a married man with a 1-year old isn't gay. rolleyes I know that there are exceptions to that, but damn, not every man is gay.

You'd be surprised.  There is a well known mormon family, and the guy came out as gay.  He has 3 kids and reported that he just fights his "gay urges."  He wanted a "normal" family more than being gay.  It happens more than you would think!

This is anecdotal, obviously, but one of my best friends has a partner who is a divorced former Mormon who had three children with his ex-wife before he came out and they separated. Interestingly, they actually have the healthiest co-parenting among any divorced individuals (and a whole lot of married ones…) that I know. Likely made possible by the fact that they both left the church during/after their divorce.

Anyway, it's an anecdote but one that I don't think is all that uncommon in Mormon culture.
