In 2005, Lawrence married Chandie Yawn-Nelson at Disney World. The location was meaningful for the couple, because, as he revealed to Us Weekly, "I met my wife at Disney World when I was 16 and on vacation. We went out, broke up, reunited years later, and got married there at Disney World in 2005!"
He elaborated in another interview with YourTango that at the time the couple got engaged, they had just reunited after not seeing each other for more than four years (during their time apart he married and divorced Michelle Vella). They decided to meet up to see if the old feelings were still there.
"When we were sitting in the car, literally, I didn't even plan it, so it's not some magical moment but to us it was," he explained. "We looked at each other in the car, and she started crying. I said, 'Let's just do this,' and she said, 'OK.' We set a date, and a year later we got married."
