Amanda Liston and her husband, Chad, both come from conservative and religious families.
The couple has been in a relationship for eight years and they married when Amanda was only 18 and Chad was 21. Together they have two sons, Atreyu and Cassian.
Amanda explained on TLC’s new show, “Brother Husbands,” that the pair considered themselves traditional up to that point:
“We went to the same church, our families were friends with each other, so we kind of had that small town Americana love story—boy meets girl, they get married young, they have kids young. My family life was the definition of traditional.”
That all changed four years after they got married, when Chad met a man named Jeremy. Both Chad and Jeremy worked at the church together and they eventually became best friends.
According to TLC, as Chad and Jeremy got close, so did Jeremy and Amanda.
Then, Jeremy fell in love with Amanda. He admitted on the show:
“When I first realized that I had feeling for my best friend’s wife, I knew that it was just something that I had to deal with. The more time I spent with Amanda, the more I realized what an amazing person she is and I just started to fall in love with her.”
Wanting to come clean to his best friend, Jeremy told Chad that he had feelings for his wife.
