Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright might 'date other people' to save their marriage

Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright might "date other people" to save their marriage.

The 44-year-old star split from his wife earlier this year, and he has now explained that they are trying to "exhaust" all other options before going down the path of divorce, including seeing other people.

Speaking on the 'When Reality Hits' podcast, he said: "I am not — I repeat not — dating anybody. I was seen out with someone and it was strictly lunch. Obviously, Brittany and I are separated and have been for a long time. What we are going through right now is tough. Marriage is not easy.

"We are trying to figure out a lot of different things: therapy, separation, and maybe, possibly, dating other people.

"We are trying to exhaust everything before we have to go down the divorce road — if that would be the case."

Brittany previously admitted that the celebrity duo could rekindle their romance at some point in the future.

The reality star is open-minded about a possible reconciliation - but she won't put herself in a "toxic situation" again.

Brittany, 35, told Us Weekly: "There’s definitely a chance. But I won’t waste my time and get back into a toxic situation.

"Now the veil has been lifted and I see how much I was always cleaning up Jax’s messes. I’m thrown in the middle of all these fights and constantly forced to apologise for him in the media and to friends. It’s hard."

Brittany is also confident that she can thrive on her own.

She said: "I feel really strong.

"At the beginning, I was freaking out. I came to Los Angeles for Jax and we moved in together immediately, so I’ve never been here by myself. But now I have my own friends and my own money."
