Ronnie and Shamari's marriage has been tested over the years.

In 2011, the couple hit the lowest point of their marriage. Things were quite rocky for the pair. Shamari admitted that she wanted to explore a relationship with another woman, so she asked Ronnie if he wanted to try an open marriage.

Shamari realized that the open marriage solution was a band aid to the situation and closed the door on it a year later.
