Inside Lynn Toler Relationship With Her Husband Eric Mumford
Everyone thinks that a judge who specializes in divorce cases would have all the answers when it comes to love and relationships, but Divorce Court Judge Lynn Toler confessed in an op-ed for The Huffington Post back in September 2012 that her own marriage had its ups and downs.
Toler was married to Eric “Big E” Mumford for nearly three decades. On January 1, 1951, Eric was born in Ohio. He was already the father of four kids when he met Toler his second wife, and that was in 1986.
However, Judge Toler loved them and raised them as her own, eventually adding two more children to their family. In 1989 they tied the knot.
At the 19-year mark of their marriage, she wrote in her op ed, “Big E, and I were off the road and deep in the weeds.”
She told the story from both of their points of view, and it didn’t sound good, and then she told how she used the lessons she learned from Divorce Court to improve their communication and understanding of each other. Over the course of a year and a half, Toler and Mumford worked to rebuild their marriage, focusing on long-term consequences and making a conscious effort to be actively engaged in their relationship. Toler wrote that they “have made a conscious decision to be consciously married.”
