How the LALU Couple Fell in Love
Love After Lockup stars Andrea Edwards and husband Lamar Jackson’s relationship first began when Andrea started writing Lamar about the book of Mormon. Apparently, there were elders in her church who were on a mission to serve inmates. They would write and visit the inmates and Andrea wanted to do the same.
Love After Lockup‘s Lamar Jackson said Andrea was very genuine and insightful and it felt like she was in his corner. However, he had to ask her to stop writing so much because it was overwhelming. That kind of love was foreign to him and made him uncomfortable. Of course, it was just a big change for him after so long without love.
Originally, Andrea Edwards did not want to marry Lamar Jackson. Turns out, she just wanted to do missionary work and get him baptized. So, romance was not the reason she contacted him – at first. But, they became very close over time and developed deep feelings for each other. Obviously, the rest is Love After Lockup history.
