Undeniably, marriage is hard on its own, but adding fourteen kids to the mix makes it even more difficult. On June 4, the Derrico couple filed for divorce and then it was complete within two days. Both parents will split legal and physical custody of their thirteen minor children. Karen says, “Together, we remain unified in the parenting of our 14 beautiful children — their well-being is our priority.” But her sentiment was still shocking when she posted a message about Deon on June 16, just days after the divorce.

  1. I am saddened, and I pray that this is not true. How can you marry, have fourteen beautiful children that your wife had for you, and walk away? Responsible men do not walk away from their families. I pray that God brought you two together and that He can keep you together if you allow Him. God is a keeper. She can’t just walk away; you, on the other hand, can pack your bags and turn your back on your kids and say, “Bye.” God forbid!!! Mister, you shall reap what you sow…

  2. I think it’s sad they should have try and work things out cause they look so perfect together and that Deon is a good catch he will find someone one day

  3. I’m still going to pray and follow them as I have always because GOD has the final say for us all.GOD I’m asking for your GRACE and MERCY!!!!

  4. Sorry to hear of their divorce. He always looked dapper in his rhinestone jeans or with shirt and tie.
    She looked tired . Is he living in the old house? There is much more to this story that we may never know. He should have the boys her the girls, she needs a break.
