The eldest son of Phil and Kay Robertson, Alan Robertson doesn’t always get the recognition he deserves. A stable force behind the family business during the early 70s and 80s, Alan has faced a great deal of hardship to achieve where he finds himself today. From getting thrown out of the family home by his father to the blatant betrayal of his wife, things were not ideal for Alan. However, the reality star persevered and is thankful for God for helping him find his way. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Alan Robertson.
Alan Robertson was born on the 5th of January, 1965. Born to Kay and Phil Robertson, Alan is the eldest child of the family and is followed by three brothers, Jase, Willie, and Jep Robertson.
During the early years, Alan was close to Willie and it was Alan and Willie who took the major load of the business during the early 70s and 80s. As a young kid, Alan faced a series of hardships and was kicked out by his father alongside his younger brothers.
“It was all of us, and Dad had decided that we were just basically cramping his lifestyle. And he was not living for the Lord obviously, he was living for himself, and so he asked us all to leave and we did. We were living about an hour north of where we are now…And like a lot of broken families, we had very little and a difficult time, and so it was very hard on us and hard on the family.”
Meeting Lisa, New Orleans, and Marriage:
Alan and Lisa first met during their time in high school. Lisa was in 6th grade and Alan was in 8th grade and while the pair had a faint recollection of each other, Alan doesn’t remember much of Lisa from his early years. The pair began dating from Lisa’s sophomore year and while Lisa wanted to marry, Alan ended up moving to New Orleans to live with his aunt. While the pair tried a long-distance relationship, things were far from normal, and Lisa ended up with a new guy and eventually fell pregnant. Lisa chose to abort the baby and got back together with Alan after a year and a half. After his move back to Louisiana, Alan was baptized by his father in the Ouachita River.
Eventually, Alan and Lisa got back together, and when Lisa told Alan that she had been molested as a child, Alan had a rude awakening.
“I did not realize for quite some time how much I had hurt Lisa,” says Al. “Not picking her up when we went out in high school but asking her to meet me, never having any money to even buy her a hamburger, introducing her to alcohol and…basically abandoning her.”
Breaking bonds and saving marriage:
In the late 1980s, things were not good for the Duck hunting business. Alan went to the seminary alongside his brother Jase and things were hard on Lisa. The pair’s marriage looked to be over in 1988 when Lisa had a year-long affair with her ex-boyfriend while Alan worked full-time at White’s Ferry Road Church. And while the affair was brought to light and Lisa admitted the guilt, the pair decided to stick together and Alan eventually forgave Lisa. Even though the decision to forgive was not well received in the family, they got behind Alan and helped him through it. Eventually, Alan and Lisa repaired their marriage and had two baby girls and are proud grandparents today.
The pair often go around the country speaking on abortion and what saved their marriage. For Alan, it is all about forgiveness and as he puts it,
“We are living proof that forgiveness is doable. Not only does it work in your life, but it allows you to help someone else realize that process. That’s why we can talk about it.”
According to credible sources Alan Robertson has a net worth of USD 3 Million.
