T.D. Jakes’ Daughter Files for Divorce from NFL HusbandSeptember 12th, 2012
Sacred Bond Of The Preacher’s Daughter?
According to T.D. Jakes’ daughter, the bible backs divorce. 24-year-old Sarah D. Henson says the good book supports her decision to divorce her husband of four-years, former NFL linebacker Robert Henson, a ‘Holy’ union, previously dubbed as a “great example for young love the Christian way”.
You may remember the couple married when Henson was just 19-years-old, and while a then 22-year-old Henson was playing for the Washington Redskins. The pair are now the parents to two young children.
Here’s what Sarah D. Henson wrote on her personal website:
“I have built my ministry and identity around being the best wife and a mother I can be. For quite sometime I have tried to steer through some serious troubles at home. As much as I wanted my marriage to last, it cannot.
There are biblical grounds supporting this decision and I have attempted every other recourse, but after multiple infractions over the course of the union, and for my personal safety and that of my children, I have come to this painful decision.”
Here’s what Robert Henson had to say about the split:
“Life is filled with many transitions. These changes in life, whether good or bad, help to strengthen us and give us wisdom to fulfill our purpose.
After four years of marriage, my wife, Sarah and I, have decided to transition from being husband and wife to being solely partners in securing a solid foundation for our children. It always has been my earnest desire to be the best possible father and example to my children that I could possibly be, and through my actions, walk before them with dignity and integrity, as well as provide them with security and safety. I will continue to walk in that role in their lives.
Please pray for my family that we will master this transition and fulfill the destiny God has planned for us.”
Maybe, if Sarah Henson would have read the book her preacher father helped to make into a movie – “Think Like a Man, Act Like a Lady” – she would have known extramarital affairs are all a part of a marriage to a professional athlete. Don’t believe me.. Ask Vanessa Bryant.
