Jenelle Evans is moving on after the end of her 2-year marriage to David Eason. Since the Teen Mom 2 alum announced she and her kids had left the former welder and moved away from North Carolina, fans have noticed how Evans seems to be more at ease upon her return to social media.
The fight is far from over as Evans and Eason appeared in court for the first time to begin discussions about custody and the end of their marriage. With restraining orders, social media posts and big moves there is a lot to catch up on when it comes to Evans and Eason's split.
