Gabrielle Union who is currently happily married to Dwayne Wade, has described her first marriage to NFL Chris Howard as dysfunctional from day one.

The 50-year-old actress admitted that she and her ex were not faithful to each other — like, at all. She disclosed this during a podcast titled, “Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard. The actress and author talked about being married to former professional football player Chris Howard, whom she divorced in 2006 after five years of marriage.

Shepard mentioned feeling guilty about his own past infidelities and Union explained that she was not “getting wife of the year awards” when it came to her marriage to the ex-Jacksonville Jaguars player.

She said, “in my first marriage, neither one of us felt like the marriage should get in the way of our dating. A part of it was like keeping up with his activities, like, ‘Oh, that’s what you’re doing? You’re going to feel this one.’ And I just felt entitled to it as well.” She added that she “was paying all the bills. I was working my ass off and I felt like that’s what comes, the spoils of riches.”

Union has been married to another former professional athlete, NBA star Dwyane Wade, since 2014. She said she wishes she felt more guilt about her behavior during her first marriage. “It was such a stupid relationship that should have never got out of the dating phase.”
