Mackenzie Standifer: Loving Life Without Ryan Edwards!

by at .

As previously reported on numerous occasions, Mackenzie Standifer has no plans to divorce Ryan Edwards.

But it doesn't sound as if she's anxious for her law-breaking husband to return home, either.

Edwards - who is Maci Bookout's ex, the father of her son Bentley and a former Teen Mom cast member - is currently behind bars.

He was arrested in December for larceny and also for heroin possession, marking at least the third time he has been apprehended by police on drug charges.

Teen Mom OG alum was taken into custody in Hamilton County, Tennessee, on January 23 and charged with theft of services.

According to police documents, Edwards allegedly walked out of a bar without paying his $36 bill in December -- and the bartender called police.

The bartender reportedly recognized Edwards from his previous mugshots, prompting his arrest.

At the time, Edwards was also booked on a previous heroin possession charge stemming from an outstanding warrant.

A few days later, the Red Bank County clerk’s office confirmed that Edwards appeared in court and that his case was continued until April 15... when Edwards will be brought back for judgment.

Until then, he will continue to serve time in county prison.

Now, back to Mackenzie...

Ry and Mack

She seems "more relaxed with Ryan gone and not so much on edge," an insider now tells Radar Online.

This same source continues of Mackenzie: "She's being more like her old self, where she is more down to earth and not in defense mode all the time."

That latter point does seem relevant these days.

Standifer has clearly been annoyed of late by constant questions about her marriage, as most fans wonder why the heck she's sticking by Ryan's side.

He wasn't even around for her birth last fall, as Mackenzie welcomed the couple's son, Jagger, with her husband checked into a rehab facility.

“Are you and Ryan divorced?” a fan asked Standifer on social medi last last month, to which she replied with clear irritation:

“Hell no!"

Other reports have claimed that Mackenzie isn't thrilled with Ryan's behavior, but that she also believes in him, loves him and has never even contemplated a break-up.

For now, she's just focusing on her very young son, interacting often with Instagram followers and actually NOT being anti-social, which is a welcome change to her friends.

Oh, and she's also preparing to return to Teen Mom OG.

So expect to hear plenty more from Mackenzie Standifer going forward!
