Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans has formally ended her marriage with Courtland Roger at a court in North Carolina, the Daily Mailreported on June 10.
The 22-year old mother officially announced her divorce from her former husband through Twitter, saying that she is “very happy and feel[s] so free.” The couple wed in 2012 but were not able to pursue divorce due to the restrictions surrounding divorce in North Carolina family law. Roger and Evans were both arrested for heroin possession in April of last year.
Evans is due to give birth to a baby boy with her new boyfriend Nathan Griffith on June 29.

A new study has been released that shows that married couples who divide household chores equally have a higher rate of divorce.
These findings come from research involving thousands of Norwegian adults that took place from 2007 to 2008. The study looked into household chores, marriage, and happiness. It was found that divorce rates were actually higher for the couples that shared household chores equally (roughly 25%) than for the 71% of couples in which women did more of the chores than men.
“The main point is that there is little to indicate that gender equality at home protects against divorce, as many people think and as is typically maintained by scholars in the field,” Thomas Hansen, a researcher with a Norwegian social research institute and one of the co-authors of the study, told TODAY in an e-mail.
