Brielle and Chad were one of the couples we featured, along with their three kids.
During the episode, Brielle shared her background story with our viewers — a background that was nothing short of jaw-dropping.
Brielle survived domestic abuse and attempted murder from her first husband.
It took her a long time to recover from those experiences — but today, she is an inspiring and strong woman.
“You would never guess, but I am the survivor of domestic abuse and attempted murder-suicide. It can happen to anyone,” she revealed.
Back in 2019, she wrote about her experiences in a post on Medium: “I survived attempted murder-suicide at the hands of my late husband in 2012. Sharing my story has not been easy, but I am speaking so that others might have a voice.”
She also wrote, “I knew that my life looked right on the outside, but it felt like I was living in a dark prison that was growing increasingly torturous.”
Today, she speaks out publicly as an inspiration, a survivor and a mentor.
