"After fighting for the marriage for so long, she's come to terms with the realization that his patterns were never going to change."

Mike Caussin's addiction rehabilitation

Before their divorce, during their temporary separation, the former football player went to rehab to help treat his sex addiction.

Mike Caussin spoke about the experience during an episode of Jana Kramer's podcast in 2019. He had said:

"Jana kind of gave me an ultimatum when everything came out, and she discovered everything, and she looked at me and said, you need to go somewhere. Basically, you need to figure out what's going on and what this is, or I'm gone, period."

After Mike Caussin and Jana Kramer got back together, they worked on their relationship, with Jana Kramer telling E! News earlier this month:

"When I found out about Mike's affairs, there was no other option but to just pray. Through that process and through the last few years of recovery with Mike and getting our marriage back on track, it's been an up and down process."

In 2020, Jana Kramer and Mike Caussin released a book about their separation and reunion titled "The Good Fight: Wanting to Leave, Choosing to Stay, and the Powerful Practice for Loving Faithfully."
