Art Terkeurst who now lives in Florida and works in the fitness industry is no longer Lysa Terkeurst’s husband. Art is an American businessman and entrepreneur who made headlines in 2017 when it was revealed that he cheated on his wife with another woman. This ultimately led to the end of their union.
Art and Lysa Terkeurst were once a couple that served many people relationship goals. They were in love and it was evident in the way they talked about each other. Lysa Terkeurst, is an author, speaker, and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Art was also involved in ministry and was the head of Proverbs 31 Ministries’ board of directors. However, things took an ugly turn and they are no longer together.
In this article, we will explore everything about their divorce, who Art had an affair with, where he is now, and what he is up to.
Are Lysa Terkeurst and Art Still Married?
Art is no longer Lysa Terkeurst’s husband. They were married for over 25 years before they sadly separated in the year 2017. The couple founded Proverbs 31 Ministries, a Christian ministry that aimed at helping women grow in their faith, and wrote several books together. The news of their separation came as a shock to many of their fans and ardent followers, who had followed their ministry and work for years.
After their separation, Art and Lysa Terkeurst filed for divorce, which was finalized in the year 2018. According to reports, the couple had been struggling in their marriage for several years before their separation, and Art’s extra-marital affair was the last straw that led to their divorce. While Art is no longer Lysa Terkeurst’s husband, the couple remains committed to their work with Proverbs 31 Ministries and continues to co-parent their children.
Who did Art Terkeurst Have an Affair With?
Art’s affair was the main and only publicly revealed reason for Lysa’s separation from him. According to reports, he was involved in an extra-marital affair with a certain woman for over a year before Lysa found out. The woman in question was identified as a personal trainer who had been working with Art during his gym sessions.
Art also had an affair with a woman he met on social media. Lysa Terkeurst talked about it in her book and said that Art had been communicating with the woman for months before she found out. The woman was from Canada and had been following Art’s ministry for a while.
Lysa Terkeurst said that she found out about the affair when Art accidentally sent her an email meant for the other woman. She confronted him, and though he denied it at first, he later admitted to it at a point the matter had deteriorated beyond repair.
Once Lysa found out about the affair, she confronted Art. As expected, this event dealt a heavy blow on their already wobbling marriage as the relationship between them was further strained. The once-doting couple got separated soon after and subsequently began the process of their divorce. In a statement released to the media, Lysa said that the affair left her heartbroken and that she needed time to heal.
She also expressed her commitment to her faith and her desire to continue working with Proverbs 31 Ministries; this is not minding that Art still had a presence in the ministry. Apparently, her devotion to the growth of the ministry and the spiritual nourishment of its members supersedes any personal issues she might have with any of its leaders, in this case, her former husband.
Where is Art Terkeurst Now?
After the divorce, Art moved out of the family home, and his whereabouts were unknown for some time. However, recent reports suggest that he has been living in Florida and is still involved in the fitness industry. According to his social media profiles, Art is a certified personal trainer and has been working with clients in Florida.
In addition to his work in the fitness industry, Art is also involved in several other lucrative business ventures. He has been involved in the real estate industry for several years and has invested in several properties in Florida which have mostly yielded good returns on investment.
What is Art Terkeurst’s Net Worth Now?
According to reports, Art is worth over $5 million, thanks to his successful business ventures. He also earned a significant portion of his net worth through his ministry work and being the president of the Board of Directors for Proverbs 31 Ministries. After the divorce, he continued to work in ministry, and he is still involved in it to date.
Did Art Terkeurst Re-marry After Divorcing Lysa Terkeurst?
It has been a couple of years since Art Terkeurst and Lysa Terkeurst’s marriage crumbled. While they have both moved on, neither Art nor Lysa has remarried. Art has not deemed it right to marry the lady he was caught cheating with nor has he been spotted with another woman. Perhaps, getting into another marriage is not something he is considering doing anytime soon.
On the other hand, Lysa Terkeurst has also remained single after the divorce with no single report about her dating someone else. Apparently, her marriage to Art didn’t fail because of her so it might not be strange to see her having a new love interest anytime soon. But no matter what might happen in the future with her, she seems content to have walked out of her marriage with Art Terkeurst.
Be that as it may, the couple still gets along well in any matter that concerns their children. Art Terkeurst and Lysa Terkeurst are parents to 5 children whose names are Jackson Terkeurst, Mark Terkeurst, Hope Terkeurst, Ashley Terkeurst, and Brooke Terkeurst. Through their eldest child, Jackson, Art and Lysa are also now grandparents to at least 2 children.
