Duck Dynasty’s Lisa Robertson has already made headlines this week by admitting that she had an abortion when she was a teenager. Now, she is making headlines once again, by opening up on the affair she had that nearly ended her marriage with husband Al Robertson.
Lisa opens up about the affair in her and her husband’s new book, A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness. She had the affair back in 1999, when she ran into an old flame. One thing led to another, and soon enough the duo were having a sexually charged affair that almost led to her divorcing Al.
“It was really hard. It was one of the most difficult things our family has ever gone through,” Al said, adding that the hardest part was getting his family to take her back after he had forgiven her.
Lisa’s affair may have been easier to swallow due to Al’s wild past. The book goes into vivid details of Al’s penchant for alcohol, drugs, and premarital sex back in his youth.
Today, Al is a Christian preacher who is still happily married to Lisa. The couple say they hope that telling their story will inspire other young people to change their lives.
