Dagen McDowell's Unsuccessful First Marriage

Prior to marrying her loving husband Jonas, Dagen was married to her first husband for quite a long time. But unfortunately, this relationship did not last long and the pair filed for a divorce in 2004.

Details of their married life have not been exclusively shared by Dagen, and the reason behind their divorce is still a mystery.

Rumors regarding their divorce or split up is out of the question right now and there has also not been any gossips about their affairs outside their marriage.

They don’t have a child at this moment and they never said anything about any future plans. They are both making sure that privacy is maintained in their personal lives.

Although they don't have a child together, they've adopted a Chihuahua together and named it "Ramon". Isn't this so adorable?
