Role model couple, Francis and Amara Van-Lare have sadly announced their divorce on their social media pages.
This news came as a shock to many of their followers, as they were couple goals for a lot of marriages.
The couple got married on the 11th of October, 2014 in Atlanta Georgia, in a colourful wedding ceremony. They are blessed with seven children from their previous marriages.

No one can say exactly why they parted, but it was Francis who first posted a cryptic message on  facebook in the early hours of Monday, leading many to wonder if all was well in the Van-Lare household.

“As I arrived the holy land I told God to vindicate me for my decision to go my own separate way for I have not done anything wrong to her and her four children to be treated the way I have been last two years . I still believe my peace and joy is out there and she will show up one day.”

Later in the evening, Amara who has since removed her “Van-Lare” surname on social media, confirmed that they had truly parted ways and asked for privacy and prayers at this time.

Dear Family,
I know you’ll be shocked to hear this but this is to officially let you know that reverting to my maiden name was my choice; Mr. VanLare and I will no longer be husband and wife as from the 16th of October 2017.
Don’t ask me what happened, just know it’s for my good and the good of my blessed children and if you can, please thank God for my children and I.
Keep sending in your questions and let Yahweh be glorified.
NB: Please desist from telling me what they say about me. Believe whatever you choose to believe. What matters to me is what God knows and what He says and since my family is in support of this, I am fine.
Don’t forget, “When life throws you lemons, make lemonade out of it”. There’s no stopping Amara!
Stay on top and keep praying for me.

This was really unexpected, we can only wish them the best in this new chapter of their lives.


  1. Sometimes it is difficult to comment when the tempter hits hard on people who try to contribute to creating a better world for others, to the extend that they are role models for many others and also knowing that such privileged opportunities are not easy to come by. Well, I don’t know either of the couples, how they started and what they’ve been through up until now. As I pray for you to overcome the tempters trials I wish you find the favour of God to solve your differences.
    God is never pleased with divorce. In fact he hates it and our Lord Jesus Christ makes it clear that that is not the purpose of God. Out of hardness of hearts people divorce and that is against the will of.
    Calm down, let down your egos, discuss your differences and find compromising stands to let your marriage work.
    Please reconsider your decisions and juxtapose it with the word of God. May you find the word of God as light to direct you to overcome this situation.
