The iconic "Swamp man" Shelby Stanga is a person whose marital life has been some mystery to the fans who love his acting and most importantly the work that has made him famous, a swamp logger. He needs no second introduction to the people out there, and that is the impact he has done in his professional life.

But today, we would like to put more light on his personal and marital life rather than his professional life.

Is The Swamp Man Married? Who Is His Wife?

A hit series, 'Jehovah's Witness' is something that many have come to know and love over the course of time. An essential character in that very series who wants to earn more money so that she could follow any religion is Donna Stanga.

Donna and Shelby are indeed married to one another, but people wonder if they are still together. Well, lately, Shelby has been pretty quiet about his wife and has not featured in anything significant with her which is why people speculate them to have split from one another.

But the news is yet to be addressed by the man himself which is why no major conclusion regarding their relationship flow can be reached.

Also, no major giveaway has come forth from the Swamp man regarding his children which lead one to doubt if he even has a family of his own. 

Shelby's Love For His Work Despite The Accidents.

Accidents are something that takes place without any notice and Shelby is not different, as he too has faced some accidents at work. Most of his accidents have occurred on the sets of Ax Men.

But the fans often term those accidents as fake and staged. Some of the fans' feedbacks shall help you know what they truly think of those accidents.

Hello everybody.

I am very new i watching Ax Men. But it did not take me long to see that the show is fake and it´s all staged for the camera. There is no way in HELL, all those accidents can happen in real life!! I mean, those men can not be that stupid and not put safety at first at all times! I love Shelby Stanga, but i don´t really want to watch more of that staged show. I have really lost interest :-( It`s such a shame the need to fake it to film it! MAN!!! What a shame!

I don't watch the show, I just happened to be flipping channels when the show caught my eye. I was curious what was going on. I saw the guy get hit w/ a log, going super slow motion and the log that they used was a very thin log. I'm supposed to believe somehow it crushed him and he had broken ribs lmao get real.... Over the top fake.

However, regardless of what the fans and viewers say, Shelby just loves his work.  He is seen to be someone who lives in luxury, but he does not live in luxury in real life.

In an interview, he made it clear to everyone as to what he has to go through to get the logs. 

“I put 108 pounds of lead [diving weights] on, steel-toed shoes and sometimes a damn hard hat. Every load, I drown three times,”

Arrested in 2014!

Back in October 2014, Shelby was arrested by the police for cutting down his neighbor's tree. While many might not term it as a big deal, remember, it does count as the destruction of private property, vandalism, and sometimes both.

There's no report on whether he was under the influence of something during the incident, as the cutting down of the tree took place around three years before the arrest. But the trees and forests do have some serious protecting. 

But despite the danger, he is just too possessed about his work, and that is what made him the icon he is today.

Shelby Stanga is someone who has made quite the name for himself with his history channel show "Ax Man." He is known to be paid $70,000 per episode for the very show, and the contracts he has landed with furniture designers, construction companies, and museums have helped him boast a huge net worth of $2 million.
