Roberta and The Merrifields: Timeline

Along with their two sons, the Merrifields met Roberta in Mexico, who had also brought her mom along with her.

After nine days, Garrick proposed to Roberta, which is the same night they got intimate with one another.

Dannielle admitted that she cried and had a hard time, but added that she knew “what was supposed to be” and that Roberta “was a part of their life”.

They now plan to start living together as soon as they can, and have talked to an attorney, who told them the only way to do that would be for Garrick to legally divorce Dannielle and marry Roberta.
