What relation does Mark & Samantha Lewis hold
Samantha Lewis, owner of Digital Playground is the former wife of Mark Kriski. They got married in 2004, May 8 in Los Angeles, California. The wedding was completely inspired by the backyard wedding.
Rolling back the time machine, despite sharing continuous laughter and conversation together, what made Samantha give a chance to their love was Mark’s honesty. Her decision got further strengthened when Mark confessed his immortal love for his children Jacqueline, Derek, Tamara, and Danielle, who were residing in Canada. Samantha too, mother of two daughters, Jennifer and Ashley quickly understood the importance of their marriage was not about them, but connecting the children of both the families under a single roof.
After their second formal meeting with their children, Samantha purely accepted, falling in love with Mark on a first date. Extreme attachment with their kids urged them to perform their sacred ceremony at their own home. The ritual was carried out amongst the presence of 200 guests, where 1000 glowing candles gave warmth for the outdoor reception. Samantha was Mark’s second wife, while the name of his First wife, is not mentioned anywhere.
No matter, how pleasant the nuptial was, it could not survive. After six years of togetherness, they headed for divorce in 2009. No specific ground for such separation has been given by any of them. While going through every detail of their dating, we discovered the existence of love solely based on integrity, honesty, and children. And the sudden downfall of such enclosed union raises the straight question on dis-honesty conducted by any partner or absence of mutual understanding between the two.
