“I’ve dropped the divorce. I want to put my family back together. Things are the best they’ve ever been.”

The couple then said that they salvaged their marriage through hard work and couples therapy. They mentioned in a statement,
“We both woke up and realized we love each other and decided we want to stay together. We both went into couples therapy something we haven’t done in 22 years of being together, and it’s brought us closer together and really opened up our communication in amazing ways.”
Billy mentioned in an interview in 2016, that although he and his wife had experienced ups and downs in their relationship, they focused on taking things one step at a time.
