Benny Hinn, Ex-Wife Announce Plans to Remarry

Ad Feedback

After reconciling late last year, evangelist Benny Hinn and his ex-wife Suzanne are now planning to getting remarried.


The couple made their announcement on "The 700 Club" Monday that they will tie the knot for a second time this fall.  They divorced in 2010 after 30 years of marriage.

Earlier this month, Hinn admitted he often put his work before his wife, and that partially led to their separation.

"Benny has always said he was [committed] to the ministry, and I had no problem with that. Then he started to say that he was married to the ministry," Suzanne told host Pat Robertson during the broadcast.

"And I knew how to sacrifice him and give him up to the Lord, I had no problem with that," she continued. "But it became more and more obvious when it became birthdays or anniversaries and I thought, 'Finally he's mine,' and there would be an emergency or something would come up and he'd be gone."

Suzanne was also battling her own problems at the time, including an addiction to prescription drugs.

"My fault and mistake is that I became so involved in the ministry that I really was not paying attention to Suzanne and the struggles she was going through emotionally," Hinn said.

He added that he was initially unaware of his wife's prescription drug abuse. She was eventually treated at the Betty Ford Clinic while their divorce was underway.

Hinn said she's been set free of the addiction.

Suzanne is expected to join Hinn on the road as he continues to travel the world with his ministry. He also recently told supporters he expected her to be by his side "for the rest of my life."
