When Did Saxon’s Parents First Meet?
Saxon’s parents were each other’s first spouses. The couple first met in college. The couple was students attending Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada.
At the time, Justine was a freshman and Elon was a year ahead of her. In a 2010 essay published in Marie Claire, Justine recalled meeting Elon for the first time during her first year of college:
A fellow student a year ahead of me, he was a clean-cut, upper-class boy with a South African accent who appeared in front of me one afternoon as I was leaping up the steps to my dorm. He said we’d met at a party I knew I hadn’t been to. (Years later, he would confess that he had noticed me from across the common room and decided he wanted to meet me.)
Initially, Elon asked her out, but Justine rejected him. After 2 years, Elon transferred to the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 1995. Even after he transferred, he used to send Justine roses.
After graduation, Justine moved to Japan to teach English. But, after she returned to Canada, Elon got back to her and the couple finally started dating. Then, Justine moved to California to be with Elon.
How Long Were His Parents Married?
After knowing each other for nearly a decade, Elon and Justine exchanged their wedding vows in January 2000. Then, after a couple of years, they welcomed their first son. Unfortunately, he died when he was just 10 weeks old from sudden infant death syndrome.
Then, in 2004, the couple gave birth to twins; Vivian and Griffin. Then, a couple of years later, they welcomed triplets; Kai, Saxon and Damian. All her kids after Nevada were conceived via IVF.
Sadly, even after 8 years of marriage and five children, the couple couldn’t remain together. They even tried couple counseling before Elon filed for divorce.
According to Justine, the vast economic imbalance between them led Elon to overrule her judgment and constantly remarked on the ways he found her lacking. She added,
I had turned into a trophy wife — and I sucked at it.
Elon grew up in a male-dominated society, but she wanted equality, partnership and the love Elon had for her before he made his millions. So, she convinced Elon to enter counseling.
But, after a month in counseling, Elon gave her an ultimatum, “Either we fix this marriage today or I will divorce you tomorrow”. Then, the next day, Elon filed for divorce.
