Here’s what happened

The two have been together for 13 years now but they briefly parted ways at the start of their romantic journey before reuniting in 2010 and tying the knot in 2012. Birmingham Live reported that the couple talked about their spilt on Bumble’s podcast My Love Is…, where Marvin said:

We had a little split about a year in. It was my doing. You know what the weirdest thing was I got cold feet for some reason and just panicked.
I called it off with Roch and when I did that, I knew that second it was the biggest mistake I’ve made.

He went on to explain:

I was in a relationship previously, but what I learned in that relationship was it went on too long and I didn't have the balls to call it off and I was quite young.
And it sort of had the reverse effect when I was with Roch, I just panicked and was like, 'I wanna call it off.'
When I did it I knew I was making a mistake. Broke Rochelle's heart.

Cool Rochelle

Meanwhile, Rochelle confirmed that she ‘pretended to be fine.’ When Marvin sat down to talk with her about the split, she had initially thought someone died. Even after Marvin told him he wants to end things, Rochelle didn’t believe it was the end. She said:

He was like: ‘I don’t think I want this anymore’, but I still didn’t think he meant us, like genuinely it was the last thing on my brain.

However, the couple found their way back to each other soon after, Marvin added:

Obviously, I was checking in on her but I knew I didn’t have the right to keep in contact because I’d caused this breakup.
Obviously, she didn’t make it easy for me, but I managed to win her back and that’s when I knew I’d be with her for the rest of my life.
