Mandy Ritter Was Warren Moon’s Second Wife

Warren and his first wife, Felicia were married for nearly twenty years. They had known each other since they were 16 and got married in 1981 when the former husband and wife were 25.

Felicia filed a divorce petition in February 2001 in a Fort Bend County district court. In the court document, Felicia mentioned that she and her then-spouse hadn’t lived together for around two years. They finalized their divorce in 2002.

Have Mandy and Warren Moon Separated? What Was the Cause?

Yes, the former NFL quarterback and his second wife, Mandy Ritter are no longer together. We don’t have the exact date of their separation or divorce, however, we can safely say that the former duo had already parted ways by 2016.

Neither Ritter nor her ex-husband has talked about their failed marriage publicly. Regarding the cause of their divorce, well no official sources have talked about it publicly, however, we presume their marriage ended due to some irreconcilable differences.

Was Warren Moon’s Physical Abuse the Cause of Their Split?

Given the tumultuous history surrounding Warren Moon’s spousal abuse trial, where he was acquitted of charges despite allegations of physical abuse towards his first wife, Felicia, speculation arises regarding the reasons behind his second divorce from Mandy Ritter.

While the verdict of not guilty in his previous trial does not confirm a pattern of behavior, it raises questions about whether his physically abusive nature could have been a factor in his subsequent marital breakdown.

However, without concrete evidence or statements from those directly involved, attributing the cause of Moon’s second divorce to physical abuse remains unconfirmed and speculative.
