Throughout cheating scandals, drug-related arrests, and a stint in rehab for heroin addiction, Mackenzie Standifer has stood by her husband, Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards, but now it seems that their relationship is worse than expected. Is it possible that the couple – who is expecting their first child together – are headed for divorce?
Last summer, the pair got married in one of the most depressing ceremonies ever caught on tape. But, even though it seems like they started at rock bottom, things have steadily gone downhill since they tied the knot.
Sources say that Standifer and Edwards are “off and on,” and things are so bad that they can’t stand each other. And, Radar Online is reporting that Standifer’s mother is afraid to get involved because in the past her daughter has threatened to take Hudson away from her. Hudson is Standifer’s 4-year-old son she shares with her ex, Zachary Stevens.

Insiders also claim that Edwards, who went to rehab last summer, is not sober today, and Standifer is basically sticking around for a paycheck. The reality star’s ex, Maci Bookout, has also said that Edwards is not sober, and she won’t let him see their 9-year-old son Bentley until he takes a drug test.
Edwards and Standifer are expecting their first child together this fall, a son they plan to name Jagger, and he is due to arrive on October 16th.
Teen Mom OG has aired the troubles between the couple in recent episodes, including the time that Edwards rushed them out of a sonogram. When they got home after fighting over directions, the 30-year-old criticized his wife about her attitude, and she responded by calling him a “d**k.”
“I just don’t know if I can do this for nine months with you,” Edwards said. “I think we just need to separate for nine months.”
Edwards entered rehab for heroin last year after cameras caught him slurring his words and nodding off while driving himself and Standifer to their wedding. Then, last month, police arrested him after he violated his probation from a previous drug possession charge.

A week after his arrest, Bookout and her husband Taylor McKinney filed restraining orders against Edwards after Bookout claimed he threatened to take Bentley. She also alleged that her ex had threatened to show up at her house and put a bullet in her head. The order protected her and McKinney, as well as Bentley and their other two children, Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 1.
The courts temporarily granted the order until their next court date in May.
Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer will return with new episodes of Teen Mom OG later this year on MTV.
