T.D. Jakes’ daughter Sarah Henson has decided to end her four-year marriage to footballer, Robert Henson. Sarah made the announcement on her website, writing:
“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. After professional counselling, and prayerful consideration I have decided to end my four-year marriage. 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.”
Robert Henson also released a statement on his website:
“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.”
Sarah and Robert have a 3-year old daughter together. She also has an older son, after she got pregnant when she was 14 years old.
