Inside the Special Moment ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ Star Juan Dixon Proposed to His Longtime Love, Robyn Dixon
Robyn Dixon and Juan Dixon have finally stopped playing double dutch with their love and the hearts of viewers. Since season 1 of Real Housewives of Potomac, they’ve been vague about the status of their relationship. After marrying and divorcing, they chose to live together and raise their children. Their castmates questioned what was going on and Robyn insisted it was none of their business, causing a rift between her and her co-stars at times.
Viewers breathed a sigh of relief when Juan and Robyn decided to put a title on their situationship and make things official by dating. Fans hoped that marriage would be in the cards for the couple and wishes were granted as it’s been confirmed that they are now engaged!
Robyn Dixon and Juan Dixon divorce but continue living together in unconventional partnership
Juan and Robyn met as teenagers and began dating when they were just 16-years-old. Robyn and her family supported Juan after he lost his mother from AIDS. Though Robyn never met his mother, Juan has said that he felt his mother sent Robyn to him following her death.
Robyn and Juan stayed together through college and she was by his side when he was drafted into the NBA in 2002. They married in 2005 and had two sons, Corey and Carter. Financial difficulties and infidelity led to the couple’s divorce in 2012.
They remained close friends and co-parents. So close that after Juan returned from playing basketball overseas, he moved into Robyn’s home. They shared the same bed while raising their sons together. Though they admitted they loved each other, fear kept them from taking their relationship to the next level.
After several years of not putting a title on their partnership, they confirmed they were dating about a year ago. They even got matching tattoos as a symbol of their commitment to one another.
