No matter how long you are married to someone, you can never be truly sure you're gonna spend the rest of your life with them. It only takes a single irreconcilable misunderstanding for a couple to depart.

When something ends, it brings a brand new opening for something even better. Rather than lamenting the divorce, a person who strives to learn from the mistakes is likelier to bump into a special partner.

Niecy Nash is one such renowned actress who appears to be living a blissful married life after divorcing from her husband of over a decade.

Niecy Nash's Married Life

Niecy Nash is married to her second husband Jay Tucker. The couple tied the knot on 28th May 2011 in Malibu.

Nash met Tucker, an electrical engineer at a Labor Day Party in 2009 and there was an instant chemistry between the couple. The two exchanged numbers and didn’t look back.

Earlier, the pair got engaged on 7th September 2010. Their subsequent wedding took place nearly a year later in front of their close ones at an outdoor afternoon ceremony at the Church Estate Vineyard.

The ceremony was aired on TLC with the program titled Niecy Nash's Wedding Bash on 4th June at 8 PM ET for two hours.

Talking about her wedding, Niecy said:

"I have to say, this second time around, it feels custom. Even after I got my divorce, the ink wasn’t even dry on the paper, and I said, ‘Ooh, the next time I become a wife, I got this thing down pat!’ I always believed that there was someone built for me."

Back in 2014, during an interview with Huffington Post, Nash revealed she is enjoying a happy and healthy relationship with her husband. In a rather recent interview, Niecy shared one of the significant lessons she's learned from her married life.

She said, 

"I would have to say what my husband has taught me is what consistency looks like. Because a lot of times, people think like, ‘I’m looking for the big get. Like, I’m looking for you to buy me this or for you to take me there or for you to make this experience'."

Niecy is a mother to several children from her past marriage. The actress continued, there is an added value in knowing somebody loves you so much that they never hesitate to take care of the children like their own.

The comedian believes the consistency in the love between two people irrespective of anything is always special. Recently, Nash and Tucker celebrated their 7th anniversary in a Wakanda-themed party.
