Guys I am so so curious as to what's going on with Rachel's marriage! Where is Eric??? Her Christmas re-cap doesn't mention him – she sat around doing calligraphy all week? Even if they couldn't see family, neither of them wanted to do anything together, that was at all Christmasy? A search of her site shows he hasn't been mentioned since June!

And the real kicker is this buzzfeed article - http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelwmiller/heres-what-its-like-when-mental-illness-affects-a-relationsh#.qm4Vv07A0

 

So Eric has depression? I mean maybe that's why he's not mentioned much… but I'm starting to wonder if they got divorced

 

I hate how she doesn't give any details about her life anymore – she used to be so open!

Also dying to know what is going on with her, though I guess I do respect the fact that she'd want to leave her husband's mental illness and problems with her marriage off the internet. That article does call him her "now-husband," so I'd assume they are still currently married. 

What I don't get is how she can write about/do all this frivolous "aesthetic" shit, acting like everything is hunkydory, when there's all this shit going on behind the scenes. In that Buzzfeed article, she writes that this was going on 10 months before her wedding. That was back when she was still posting somewhat personal stuff right? And we never heard any of it. Just tralala mint green car, nude shoes are hard, etc. So so bizarre. 

I don't know. She called it "our apartment" 6 weeks ago and they took a trip together in August. Maybe he went home and she didn't? I don't think she'll ever leave New York.

I have have always thought they rushed into the marriage. Remember her post about wanting a little republican inside her? Barf.

I honestly don't seem them together forever.  She is SO SO SO vapid and he seemed to enjoy more of a "relaxed" lifestyle.  Then again, they did fall in love over skype and she moved down there for him.  Something tells me this is his "favor" to her without much input allowed.  She's so boring.

Anyone else notice on her recent Instagram post of her planner/notebook that one of her "to do" items is "Bachelor pitch"??
I'm sure she posted it on purpose but hmmmmm idontknow

I haven't read this thread in ages, and am just now seeing the divorce speculation. I'm now reading Rachel's recent blog posts, and she mentions "my apartment" (not "our apartment") and writes about getting sick in the middle of the night, but no mention of Eric… chin I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything; maybe she's decided to not write about her husband or marriage at all anymore, though that seems unlikely/strange. Now I'm wondering what's up! Usually where there's smoke, there's fire, and this seems "off" for her… She's still wearing her wedding ring on Instagram as of 3 days ago, though, so probably nevermind. idontknow

Well, her husband is on Linkedin and is listed as working for a company in Houston. I would have assumed he was working remotely except his current job started in Oct 2015, so I'd guess he's living there again (still?).

She also linked to a buzzfeed article last month about long distance marriages…

Glad to see this thread revived! I actually still go on her blog pretty regularly. Her weekly link round-up usually has a great deal of interesting articles even though the content that she writes personally is pretty frivolous. Like other people have said, I wish she would share more personal content and tell everyone wtf is up with her life. Ever since her move to New York out of the blue she has been so unrelatable. I am happy for her professional success but I kind of feel like her move to BuzzFeed (which I LOATHE) was her selling out and I have lost a lot of respect for her as a result

The content she writes for buzzfeed is ridiculous.  It's not interesting and her schtick about being a "brown girl" is overplayed at this point.  She doesn't come across as authentic at all.

How is that a schtick?

I would clarify my comments to add that I actually appreciate when Rachel used to share her perspective on social issues (which includes her experience as a mixed race woman). Now her "writing" consists of crafting/glue gun/look at these flowers pictures drooldrooldrool. Ain't nobody got time for that shit

An apartment tour of Rachel's place

Wish there were more pictures! But at least it's a little more insight into her life… and Eric is mentioned in the present tense

Made an account just to ask if anyone has noticed that she only ever mentions one dog now? My guess is that Eric lives in Houston with the other. Thoughts?

That's what I believe! I think they are doing some sort of long-distance marriage. Although it seems like they never ever visit each other? She does occasionally mention her weekend plans (mom was in town or something) but never mentions Eric. So strange.
