When did Lauren meet her husband?

The podcaster met her ex-husband, Manuel, around 2010. The relationship was mostly long-distance, with occasional travel between Italy and the United States.

What led to Manuel Giusti and Lauren Compton's divorce?

Lauren decided to end her first marriage after learning that her husband was having an affair with a restaurant hostess. She found out about his infidelity when he failed to go home one night. The two were living in Venice Beach, California, at the time.

She used her iPhone to locate him and saw him coming out of a girl's house looking dishevelled. Compton revealed in her Out & About interview that she confronted him later that day before calling it quits.

Later that night when he came home, I was like just having anxiety, 'do you mind going for a drive with me' and he is like 'sure!'. So, I drive as slow as I could back to that house. I was like, 'who lives here?' And it was the hostess of the restaurant that he managed. So, then I punched him in the face, and I told him to get out of the car, and three days later, I moved out.
