When the world first learned that Javi Marroquin and Lauren Comeau were dating, Teen Mom 2 fans had their doubts about the relationship's potential for longevity.
Javi and Lauren live in separate states and they seemed to be living very different lifestyles, so it was no great surprise when Marroquin and Comeau broke up after just a few months together.
Shortly thereafter, Javi began dating Briana DeJesus, thus seemingly driving a nail into the coffin of his short-lived romance with Lauren.
But that relationship ended just as quickly, and now it looks as though Javi and Lauren are officially back together!
We all know it's all very confusing, so join us as we attempt to untangle the complex web that is Javi's love life:
1. Javi & Lauren
Javi first revealed that he and Lauren were in a relationship back in July of 2017. At the time, Javi told Radar Online that he met Lauren at the wedding of mutual friends.
2. Hopeful Javi
In that same interview, Javi gushed about Lauren and spoke optimistically about their future together. He admitted that the relationship was “fairly new,” but noted that it “doesn’t feel that way.”

In her own interview that same week, Lauren confessed that living in different states made things difficult (She resides in South Carolina; Javi, in Delaware.), but seemed certain that both she and Javi were up to the challenge.

“Distance isn’t ever easy,” Lauren told Radar. “But we have a lot planned and busy schedules in between so I think we’ll handle it well.”
5. Teen Mom 2 Troubles
There were rumors that Kailyn Lowry didn’t approve of her ex’s new girlfriend. Some even went so far as to claim that Lauren refused to appear on Teen Mom 2 because she and Lowry didn’t get along. But despite the many hurdles they faced, both Javi and Lauren seemed committed to making their relationship work.
6. Too Much, Too Soon
In the end, however, it seems their first attempt at a lasting romance simply faced too many challenges too early on. Just weeks after he went public with his new relationship, Javi deleted all the photos of Lauren off his Instagram page. Comeau and Marroquin went their separate ways, but it seems they’ve recently experienced a change of heart…
