Lyssa Chapman’s background:
Lyssa Rae Chapman’s nickname is Baby Lyssa, because she is the ninth child. Her mother, Lyssa Rae Brittain, is the third wife of Duane Chapman. Lyssa gave birth to her firstborn, a baby girl, when she was 15 years old. That meant she was 14 when she first conceived her daughter. The father of the baby was 24 years old and he was arrested, convicted, and sentenced to prison, for sexual abuse on the underaged Lyssa. At that time, she was living in Alaska, with her mother. After 6 years, when she was 17 years old, Lyssa returned to Hawaii.
Lyssa works for her father’s company, Da Kine Bail Bonds, in Hawaii.
Lyssa Chapman & Bo Galanti:
Lyssa married Brahman Galanti, aka Bo Galanti. Lyssa gave birth to her second child, another daughter, on August 7, 2009. This second natural child was named Madalynn Grace Chapman-Galanti.
In Oct 2010, the domestic situation grew so bad that Lyssa threw her estranged husband out of their home. Bo Galanti returned and the couple went for marriage counseling.
Lyssa had asked her parents for help but although everyone went after Galanti, he didn’t change.
Since Galanti and Chapman failed to heal their relationship, she decided to file for divorce, after 2 years of marriage.

Why do marriages fail? A marriage creates a boundary around the couple and around each partner in the union. A married person knows the new boundaries that need to be respected. A violation of boundary invites potential for more serious problematic developments. It takes two to clap hands and two people committing boundary crossings spell infidelity and affair. What makes a married spouse desire to seduce or fall into temptation? The perception of dissatisfaction with the present spouse is the fault. When the perception is that desires are met even in a marriage that is far from perfect, the marriage may survive. If a person is happy with an unsatisfactory partner, the marriage remains solid as a rock.
