Famous Boyfriend – Trevor Lawrence
Marissa Mowry and Trevor Lawrence met in high school, and started dating on 24 May 2016. They were united by their love for sports; at the time, Trevor was considered a promising high school football prospect.
Although Marissa and Trevor have always given the image of a strong couple, their individual responsibilities caused their split in February 2018. Marissa commented about this issue on her Instagram account, insisting she prioritized her relationship with Trevor before anything else: ‘I put it first in my life. I put my worth in what Trevor thought of me, what he said or didn’t say about me. I loved him more than I loved God.’
She continued the post saying her relationship had turned negative, and both had made mistakes, which ultimately led her to reach an ‘emotional low’. Marissa ended the post by pointing out that she and Trevor had overcome the difficulties they faced by ‘letting God work in our lives and pour into us’.
With that chapter behind their lives, Marissa and Trevor attended their promo together. Despite enrolling in different universities, both are southern Atlanta-based Colleges, which allowed them to keep dating even during their freshman year.
Apparently Marissa and Trevor broke up again in 2019, supposedly due to problems caused by Lawrence’s many responsibilities with his team. At the time both were still in their freshman year, and were trying to adapt to the new dynamic of their relationship.
Fortunately for the couple, they were able to repair their relationship and have been together since then.
On 17 July 2020 Marissa and Trevor announced their engagement. The football player had asked for the hand of a surprised Mowry’s in the middle of the field of Clemson Memorial Stadium: ‘I was super nervous. I told Marissa we were doing graduation pictures. We were out on the field and we had one of our team photographers taking our pictures’, said Lawrence in an interview with ESPN.
Clad in white a mini-dress, Mowry didn’t have any doubts and promptly said yes to her boyfriend-turned-fiancé: ‘It seems a little bit cliché, but Clemson in general has meant so much to both of us and our story,’ Lawrence continued.
On 27 July, Marissa posted an Instagram post on which she reflected on her feelings during the heartfelt proposal: ‘I just got overwhelmed with thankfulness’. She also added her thoughts on saying yes in what she considered a special and meaningful place: ‘(it) means so much more than the tangible gifts it’s given us. This place represents our love.’ (…) ‘It’s a place where I have been able to see God’s love firsthand’.
