Quotes:

Eva about her divorce from Tyler: "In a divorce, no matter the relationship, it's still the death of something. And you have to mourn it. You have to go through it, or else it's unresolved. And then you're like, "Coulda, shoulda, woulda?" And I like to say, "I'm going to mourn over it, and it's never going to come back." Then you move on."

Eva on getting married again: "Believe me, I would shout it from the highest mountain. I married before when I was too young and eloped to Vegas. This time I'd love to have an engagement and a big wedding and do it properly."

Eva about marrying young: "You don't know who you are when you're in your twenties so I think it's really difficult to be selfless. You actually have to be selfish because you need to learn about you and what you want and which direction you're heading in life. I don't think I'll be ready to get married again until I'm well into my forties."
