Raiven and Bear Brown from the popular reality TV show “Alaskan Bush People” have been known for their on-again, off-again relationship. The couple recently sat down to address their fans’ curiosities and to give insight into the complexities of their relationship. The revelations from this session offered a unique perspective into the lives of these famed Alaskan wilderness dwellers.
A standout revelation was Raiven Brown’s blaming of social media interference for the couple’s consistent breakups. The Browns have a substantial fanbase, but not all interactions on their social media accounts are positive. Raiven shared that online trolls’ constant comments were a significant trigger, leading to unnecessary fights between the couple.
She expressed that many of their disagreements were fuelled by these online interactions, causing them to put an undue amount of importance on the negative comments. Raiven emphasized that this would be the final time they discuss their relationship issues on social media, highlighting the toxicity they felt from these platforms.
Alaskan Bush People: Personal Issues and Maturity
While acknowledging the negative role social media played, Raiven Brown also delved into more personal reasons behind their tumultuous relationship. She admitted to being only 21 when they began dating, which she felt was quite young to be in a committed relationship.
She also mentioned that Bear Brown was unprepared for a relationship as he had only experienced resolving problems with family members and not with a romantic partner. This lack of maturity, according to Raiven, led to numerous issues.
Alaskan Bush People: The Impact of Separations
The couple’s separations, especially after the birth of their first child River, and following Billy’s death, played a significant role in the relationship’s turbulence. According to Raiven, these separations, though difficult, were important. They provided an opportunity for both of them to gain perspective, a process she believes made them stronger as a couple.
There was also a brief mention of a legal issue, which led to Bear Brown serving time for domestic abuse charges. This caused Raiven to leave him again before their second child, Cove, was born.
Alaskan Bush People: A Better Relationship Now
Despite all the ups and downs, Raiven is adamant that she and Bear are in a better place now than ever before. She hopes that having experienced their parents’ separations at a young age, their children will not remember these challenging times.
The couple’s story is a testament to overcoming personal and external challenges in maintaining a relationship, something many of their fans can undoubtedly relate to.
