A court order may keep Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith apart for the next month, but love will keep them together — at least that’s what the former Marine hopes!
Following his arrest for domestic abuse on March 4, the Teen Mom 2 star, 25, tells ‘Radar Online,’ “I love her and want to be with her.”

He adds that he wants to go back to couples therapy and attempt to salvage their relationship.
According to a police report, obtained by ‘Radar,’ Nathan allegedly showed the responding officer the marks on his back and made a statement, declaring Jenelle was “always” violent with him.
Despite their troubled past, Nathan says this was the first time he was physically violent with her.

A source claims Nathan has been trying to split with MTV’s bad girl for a while, and he even went as far as lying about an affair to break free of her.
The source explains, “Nathan thought if he said he was cheating that Jenelle would get mad enough at him to leave. He isn’t cheating on her, he just tried to get her to make a move, but it all backfired on him. He tries to leave and she stands in front of his truck. There is nothing he can do.”

But Nathan insists these reports — as well as claims they’re fighting over custody of their seven-month-old son, Kaiser — aren’t accurate and couldn’t be further from the truth.
“I love her to death,” he gushes. “I want my family together.”
