Wedding bells could be ringing for Kail Lowry and her live-in lover Elijah Scott— if the mom of seven gets past her hesitation to try marriage again.
On this week’s episode of her Baby Mamas No Drama podcast, Kail told her co-host Vee Torres that Elijah– with whom Kail shares three kids with— wants to get married, but she is reluctant to say “I do” again. Kail pointed to her failed marriage to Javi Marroquin as the reason she’s hesitant to get hitched again.
“What is the point of getting married if divorce is an option? And I’m saying that as someone who’s divorced,” Kail said. “What business do I have getting remarried if Javi and I got divorced? …why do we think we can go remarry? If we can just marry and divorce, why are we getting married? Why are we making those commitments of ’til death do us part’ if death do not do us part?”
Kail— who was married to Javi from 2012-2016— said she shouldn’t have gotten married to Javi at such a young age. Despite this, Kail said she does want to marry Elijah.
“I go back and forth with divorce and remarrying all the time. It’s something that I really struggle with,” she said. “On some days, I’m like, ‘Yes, Elijah and I are gonna get married…I want to, but I also have this internal conflict about the fact that I was married before and I made those commitments, and I made those vows, and I did not follow through.”
Vee asked how Elijah feels about marrying Kail, and Kail revealed that Elijah has asked her to marry him “so many times.”
“I say yes, and I want to marry him, but I also…he was married and divorced too,” she said. “We both got divorced. We didn’t fulfill our commitments before, so what makes us think that each [of us] is any different now?”
Kail said that she refuses to set a wedding date.
“I say yes, and then he’ll be like, ‘OK, let’s set a date, let’s do this.’ And that’s where I’m struggling because he wants to set a date and he wants the whole ceremony and everything,” Kail said. “I say yes but then I don’t actually go forward with setting a date. I don’t actually go forward with planning. I don’t actually do any of those things.”
Kail then made it clear that her reluctance to marry Elijah is not due to her wanting to get back with Javi, and that no “Kavi” Reunion will ever happen again.
“Please don’t twist what I’m saying into me wanting to be with Javi. That’s not the case,” she said. (As The Ashley previously reported, Javi is currently dating and expecting his second child with Lauren Comeau.)
“I’m thankful [for that marriage], but I’m not a quitter. That’s the other thing, is that I’m not a f**king quitter!” Kail said.
Kail stated that she felt that she and Javi could have worked out their issues.
“To me, looking back, there was nothing so extreme [that either of us did] that would have warranted a divorce, so I look back and I’m like, ‘I failed this.’ I am mad at myself for doing it in the first place because divorce was an option,” Kail said.
Kail said that her ex, Malik Montgomery, also wanted to marry her while they were together.
“Even when I was with Malik and he wanted to marry me, he was sending pictures of [engagement] rings and asking [my assistant] Kristen my ring size and things like that,” she said. “I definitely wasn’t prepared then [to get married], but now, I don’t see Elijah and I going anywhere [or breaking up]. I just don’t.”
