Meghan King Edmonds and Jim Edmonds attempted to keep their marriage intact for the sake of their children before ultimately calling it quits on their five-year union last October.

During the February 20 episode of Heather Dubrow’s World, a Podcast One series hosted by her former Real Housewives of Orange County co-star, Heather Dubrow, Meghan admitted that she and Jim went back and forth on the idea of a breakup for some time before Jim ultimately made the decision to file for divorce.

“At the beginning, Jim and I… We were kind of straddling a line for a few months, which probably also helped me to move on,” she explained.

According to Meghan, the back-and-forth between her and Jim actually made it easier for her to walk away from their marriage and move out of their home in St. Louis in lieu of a new place with her kids in Los Angeles. That said, when it came to the first couple of months that followed the split, Meghan believes she was surviving on adrenaline.

As Meghan explained, Jim’s choice to put an end to their marriage ended the period of ups and downs she was enduring with him.

“There was no looking back. The decision was made. Jim decided to file for divorce and that was that. There was only one way and that was to look forward,” she recalled.

In June of last year, the couple was confronted with a series of text messages, photos, and graphic videos he allegedly sent to another woman. Needless to say, the months that followed the highly-publicized scandal were extremely difficult for both of them.

Although Meghan and Jim opted to stay together post-scandal, she said they struggled to get past the former MLB slugger’s infidelity.

“It’s hard to come back from [infidelity]. Both parties have to work really hard and if that effort isn’t very consistent, it’s going to make it more difficult,” she explained.

Although Meghan went through some challenges as she tried to move on from what happened, she told Heather on Thursday that she is now at a point where she’s accepted her new life without her ex-husband.

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Jim has been fairly silent about his split from Meghan in recent weeks but did recently share an upbeat caption to a gym photo in which he said he was trying to get himself back together after their breakup.
