Destiny brought these two together as they met unexpectedly at a conference and their spouses broke up with them on the same day.
It may have taken time, it may not have been the way they expected, but fate had its own way of bringing this couple together. Brittany Wright from Dallas and Tyler Tipps of Oregon were both in Seattle, and a work conference had given them the chance to meet each other.
At the time, Brittany was in an unhappy marriage that was on the verge of divorce, and surprisingly, so was Tyler. During the conference, both Brittany and Tyler instantly felt a connection and their friendship began. Brittany told Inside Edition, "We instantly had gravitated to each other because of our personalities. It was strictly a friendship and really just opened up with each other."
In a way, they were both going through similar experiences and could relate to what the other was feeling. Brittany went on to say, “We were both married and both in bad marriages and confided in each other because we both understood.”
Brittany had been receiving texts from her husband at the time the entire day, and “I want a divorce” was the last text she received towards the end of the conference from him. Later, Brittany said that she received a call from Tyler, letting her know that his spouse wanted to end their marriage. Brittany said, “A couple hours later Tyler called and said, ‘My wife’s gone, she packed up all her stuff and left,’” Wright said. “I could hear he was just devastated. And I told him if it made him feel any better I am moving out when I get home.”
The conference was a bittersweet experience for both of them. On the very last day of the conference, both their spouses told them that they wanted to end the relationship, but both Brittany and Tyler left the conference knowing that they found a wonderful friend in each other.
The ordeal of going through divorces began for both of them. “We continued to talk. For 70 days while we were going through our divorces we became the best of friends," said Brittany, according to Del Sol Photography. "I asked Tyler to be my date in Colorado for a girlfriend’s wedding. It was there we really knew we loved each other and wanted to marry each other. We continued long distance until January 1st when he asked me to marry him while he was visiting in Texas for Christmas, of course I said yes.”
Although they believed that this time, they were finally saying 'I do' to the right person, Brittany still held back from telling people. She said, “I was more hesitant tell everybody because I had just gotten divorced. I felt terrified. I thought people were going to judge me, but I knew that’s what I wanted.”
But fate sent them another sign and the couple firmly believed that God had chosen them for each other. A few days later, Tyler received a call that made things so much easier for the couple. “Three days later he got a call from his national manager offering him the regional manager spot in Dallas Texas because that manager quit… So he said YES, sold all of his stuff and moved to Texas. We’ve been living together since January and are in AWE of GOD.”
Even though they both had unhappy marriages the first time, Brittany and Tyler truly believe that they both were meant to find each other and share the rest of their lives together. And not long after, they both exchanged vows and are doing just that. Brittany said, “We believe that all along this was the end plan for the both of us. We have a very strong foundation in Jesus and believe that God has a purpose for us being married.”
