'Life After Lockup' stars Andrea and Lamar say their relationship is work in progress: 'Trying not to go crazy'
But what's thwarting the progress is their recent move to Compton, California. Andrea was reluctant from the start and she made it evident during their chat with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW)
Andrea Edwards and Lamar Jackson's relationship has gone through the wringer quite a few times. Today, they are more open to the fact that they'll have to take into consideration boundaries and each other's feelings if they want their marriage to blossom even in times of crisis.
In a chat with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Andrea implied that her relationship with Lamar is a work in progress. But what's thwarting the progress is their recent move to Compton, California. Andrea was reluctant from the start and she made it evident during our chat.
"Utah was such a different sheltered environment. And I had a certain bubble flash circle around me and I don't have that in California. And I don't know if I'll ever get adjusted to it. I think about going back to Utah at least once every day," she says as she lists the pros of living in Lehi, Utah. Lehi was all about safety, being around friends, growing up amid better social structure, lower crime rate, cleaner air, and the fact that it's home to "90% Mormons," pointed out Andrea.
Safety matters to her and has niggled at her mind for some time now. She expressed her annoyance about the blaring sirens that the kids have been waking up to in Compton. Their parenting skills will be tested. In tonight's episode, we see Tennison trying out weed for the first time. While Lamar is relaxed about it, Andrea explodes.
Will this fracture their relationship beyond repair? From the looks of it, they are dedicated to finding ways in which they can improve and elevate their relationship.
"I feel like we're still learning boundaries and how to consider each other's feelings. Which is still really, really hard because Lamar and I are both, I don't wanna say stubborn but we're both passionate about respect," Andrea said while Lamar added that they are going through different levels of love.
"We are trying not to go crazy at this point," Lamar quipped to which Andrea quickly added that she missed the "romantic, honeymoon love." Catch Andrea and Lamar's story on WE tv's quarantine special four-part series 'Life After Lockup' every Friday at 9/8c.
