Monica Raymund Lesbian, Wedding
One thing that most people don’t know about this beautiful woman is that she has been married before. She married to author and director Neil Patrick Stewart in 2011. The wedding took place in Colorado, where the couple decided to “let the Colorado Mountains and Mother Nature inspire our sense of marriage,” said Monica.
However, the marriage did not survive because the couple decided to separate in 2013. They were officially divorced in 2014. No reason for the divorce was disclosed, nor was anything said because they had no child.
There were many rumors that indicated that the marriage broke up because Monica was a lesbian. Now, shortly after the two had separated, she declared on Twitter that she was proudly bisexual and that she had spoken openly about her sexuality years before.
In 2016, she went one step further and announced her partner and the woman she called the love of her life on Twitter. Very little is known about her partner, Teri Segal, who works as a camerawoman.
In a deleted tweet Monica wrote: “She is the love of my life. World, meet my queen, who has given me all my strength and courage. I love you.
Since Monica became aware of her sexual orientation and later announced her relationship with Teri, both women dealt with the affair more openly and shared their love through social media.
