Rep. Madison Cawthorn and his spouse are divorcing just after much less than a yr of relationship, with the North Carolina Republican citing his position in Congress as part of the rationale for the split.

“When my wife Cristina and I were engaged, I was not a member of Congress,” Cawthorn, 26, explained in a assertion posted by his spokesman on Wednesday. “I felt known as to provide and we both equally agreed that I must run. Our victory was unparalleled. But overnight, our lives adjusted,” the 1st-phrase lawmaker explained.

“That adjust has been both equally hectic and tough. It is really neither the pace nor the lifestyle we experienced prepared for,” the lawmaker stated.

Cawthorn claimed he and his spouse – who tied the knot in April – were being “fully commited to make factors work,” but the pair “realized that harmony was not attainable and that we experienced irreconcilable dissimilarities among us.”

Eight months back, Cawthorn celebrated his marriage, contacting it the “greatest honor, privilege and journey” of his lifestyle.

“Although it was an enormously complicated selection, Cristina and I have mutually decided to divorce,” Cawthorn said on Wednesday. “We talk to for privacy as we get the job done as a result of this privately.”
