In early 1988 Juanita got pregnant. It took her several years to convince Michael to marry her and to take responsibility for his baby. They say, she even hired a lawyer and made Michael do a paternity test. In September 1989 they wedded and then gave birth to two other kids (in addition to their first one, who was born in 1988).

Juanita was an office worker when she met Michael. After their wedding, she left the job and focused her mind on charity. In 2002 she filed for divorce for the first time, but both managed to reconcile. In 2006 they decided to separate again, and this time both were very serious about their decision.
