Kailyn Lowry may be in the midst of a divorce, but that didn’t stop the Teen Mom 2 star from traveling to Puerto Rico with kids as her husband, Javi Marroquin, prepares to return home from his deployment.
Days ago, Kailyn Lowry took to Twitter, where she revealed her plans for a tropical vacation with her 6-year-old son, Isaac, and 2-year-old son, Lincoln, and on Monday, the reality star and mother of two shared a photo from her trip.
As Starcasm revealed on July 18, Kailyn Lowry shared several moments from her trip on her Snapchat account, one of which featured the Teen Mom 2 star on the beach in a black two-piece swimsuit.

Kailyn Lowry announced she and Marroquin were parting ways after just three years of marriage in May, and during the Teen Mom 2 Season 7 Reunion Special, she expressed disappointment in how Marroquin handled her 2015 miscarriage. According to Lowry, Marroquin wasn’t supportive and blamed her for losing what would have been her third child, but according to Marroquin, he knew the loss wasn’t her fault.
In the months since Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin confirmed the end of their marriage, Lowry has raised questions about her possible lesbian relationship with her longtime friend, Becky Hayter, and also hinted that she may be having second thoughts about her decision to file for divorce.
Whatever the case with Kailyn Lowry may be, she and Marroquin won’t be together for a while and until they can sit down and talk things out face-to-face, fans will likely remain confused about what their future may hold.
As for her current vacation with her sons, a source claims Kailyn Lowry did not up and leave with the boys in an effort to keep them from Marroquin when he returns.
“Kail loves to travel and thinks it’s important for her boys to travel as well and see everywhere they possibly can,” a source close to Kailyn Lowry told Radar Online on July 19. “She will be back before he gets home.”
“Javi of course wishes he could be on the trip with the boys, but right now he’s just more focused on getting home,” the insider continued. “I think that coming home to the boys is the only thing on his mind right now.”

Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin tied the knot in 2012 and celebrated their marriage one year later during a bigger ceremony in Camden, New Jersey, which their friends and family members attended. Then, just weeks later, Kailyn Lowry gave birth to their son Lincoln.
While many reports, and Marroquin himself, have claimed Kailyn Lowry’s divorce from Marroquin was prompted by her miscarriage, another source claimed Lowry and Marroquin had been having issues for a while.
“They’ve been unhealthy for a while, and [Kailyn Lowry] knew divorce was inevitable,” an insider close to the estranged couple told Us Weekly. “There was always a disconnect… The bottom line is they were two strong personalities who both want to be in control living together.”
During Teen Mom 2 Season 7, Kailyn Lowry expressed her heartache over Marroquin’s deployment and their marriage struggles.
“It’s rough, it’s hard,” she told friends. “[Deployment is] a lot harder on him than I thought it would be. He doesn’t feel supported … We lose things to talk about. His day-to-day is the same, we have been fighting. Right now I feel like is the time for me to focus on myself.”
Kailyn Lowry recently hinted that Teen Mom 2 Season 8 was in production by sharing a filming photo on social media. However, up until this point, MTV has not yet confirmed the series’ renewal.
