The first person that Christina Haack was engaged to was her first husband, Tarek El Moussa. Initially, the duo met at work as Tarek mentored her while he was in a relationship with another woman. Once Tarek was single, he and Christina wasted no time in progressing toward marriage. “The day Tarek and I officially started dating, which was October 9, 2006, we moved in together,” she revealed to Good Housekeeping in 2017. Before they were engaged, the couple set up a dream board in their office that included a wedding ring, along with other possessions they aspired to acquire. “The weird part is, by the time I turned 31, we had all of it,” Christina said.
Christina and Tarek were married by 2009, and became reality stars together on “Flip or Flop” but this added a strain on their personal lives. “Tarek and I were so tied together on everything: real estate, the show, our children, our house. It was so stressful,” Christina told People in 2018. The couple split in 2016 after an argument at their home escalated, and police were called to their home. After breaking up, the former couple continued to work together on their hit HGTV show, and finalized their divorce in 2018. In July, Tarek and Christina made headlines when they had an on-set fight where Tarek referred to her as a “washed up loser,” per Us Weekly.
