Jep Robertson's Wife Says She Fell for Jep's Sweetness

Jep Robertson has risen to popularity with his appearance in the popular reality TV show 'Duck Dynasty.' The show revolved around his family business, including his parents and siblings.

But, Jep has built his own little family with his wife and kids.  After seeing him on the show for so long, viewers have even wondered, 'is Jep Robertson married?' The truth is, Jep is a happily married man.

Who is Jep Robertson's Wife?

Jep has been married to his wife Jessica Robertson since 2001. They have an interesting history together.

It might come off as a surprise, but Jep and his spouse dated for a mere span of four months before getting married.

Their first meeting was at a place you'd never expect to find the love of your life- at the hairdresser. They only exchanged greetings at that time but got to know each other better later, resulting in a marriage that has lasted over two decades.

It might sound like a hasty decision when you hear their love story for the first time, but the husband and wife duo has stood through it all together. They've had their issues in the past and overcame them as a team.

Jessica shared her tale with Fox News and gave a little insight into the early marriage days. She said,

When Jep and I first married we got a little trailer, we never went on a honeymoon, I never had a wedding ring, I had a wedding band. 

The reason behind it was financial issues. In addition, they were young college students, and Jep struggled with drugs, whereas Jessica has a rough past due to her previous relationship. 

On top of that, for the first seven or eight years of marriage, Jep's wife said they could "barely make ends meet."

'Love will keep us alive' was quite their reality back then. So while other couples may have faltered by the pressure and stress, Jep's relationship with his wife only grew stronger over time.

Jess couldn't stop there and added a few more words of praise for her dear hubby,

I saw so much kindness, gentleness and self control, all these great characteristics that you want in someone.

All those great things kept the marriage going through periods of hardships.
