Really, no one should expect you to know who Ashley Harlan is. Because she became best known as the wife of the popular American quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
As a rather simple woman, Ashley has remained in the spotlight with her husband, although she can do other things for her.
Ashley Harlan Biography, Wiki
While she became popular as Ben Röthlisberger’s wife, it is no longer like before the quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers, whom she had no life of her own.
She was born on July 24, 1983, in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, USA Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. It was in the town of New Castle that she was raised by her parents along with her siblings; David W. Harlan and Jeannie Harlan.
Ashley Harlan attended Laurel High School for her education and graduated in 2004. From here she went to St. Francis University in Loretto, Cambria County, for her college education and graduated in 2009. She left the institution with a degree in Health Sciences.
A year after graduating from university, Ashley Harlan earned a Master of Physicians’ Assistant.
It’s no surprise that she’s dating an athlete because the woman was very athletic during her childhood. She played basketball, softball, and volleyball during her studies and continued to play a role as an All American Scholar athlete.
Ashley Harlan Engagement and Marriage
As already mentioned, Ashley Harlan is married to Ben Roethlisberger. They both got married exactly on 23 July 2011. Only one day before their 28th birthday. The wedding with up to 500 to 650 guests took place in the Christ Church at Grove Farm. The marriage also saw the presence of police patrols and the media.
The two met through a mutual friend who introduced them to each other in a training camp. That was in 2005 and they immediately started looking for a partner. The relationship was strengthened by the fact that they had a common interest in sports.
It didn’t go quite smoothly for the two when they were together, as Ben was accused in 2008 of sexually assaulting Andrea McNulty, a former VIP casino hostess in Harrah. The same thing would happen again in 2010 when he was accused this time by a student in Milledgeville Georgia.
The relationship was able to survive the storms after the charges against the player were dropped for lack of evidence. Another thing was that Ben Roethlisberger (Big Ben) was popular as a playboy, so the relationship dragged on in some places.
Just like marriage itself, Ashley Harlan’s commitment was also at the center of attention. This was the result of the case of sexual assault previously directed against Ben.
Also, many people believed that Big Ben was only trying to marry Ashley to save his picture. The quarterback replied, “People can say it’s whatever, but people who can know and see and be around us and know me to know it’s special when you find that person, and I’m very lucky.”
The Steelers quarterback should have asked the question to the young and beautiful Ashley Harlan about the Christmas holidays.
An interesting thing about the wedding was that the couple got the guests to donate to a foundation that the couple had established. The foundation was established to support Ronald McDonald House and UPMC’s Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
