    I think I’m more upset with her. Why would you EVER give your baby those awful genes if you had an idea that you wouldn’t be with him for life?I thought she was sick in love to sacrifice her child to have that face.

    These ppl get married for the wrong reasons, e.g. getting knocked up. Not a great foundation for a solid marriage…

    Okay I’m going to sound like a *****, but people need to stop marrying and having kids when they are basically kids themselves. No one should be married and divorced by the age of 26..

    OK, this IS hilarious. Why bother getting married in the first place? You just want to be in the spotlight for one day, in that white gown? Ridiculous.

    This story shocked me. I thought it was fake at first. So much for emo love.

    She is 26???? She looks so hardened for that age.

    Dang . never expected. I thought they are going to be together happily ever after. I think it fizzled after she got pregnant/had a baby and he wasn’t really in love (possibly just in lust + hot romance only). Plus, they married too young.

    I’m sorry to hear about this. They seemed like they would really go the distance. Hopefully they remain friendly for Bronx’s sake. I wish them the very best.

    Not surprised that this one didn’t last.

    MangerBouger Says:

    Why are they getting married in the first place if they don’t believe in true love and try to make it work … WHY ?!!!!!

    Just move in with him/her instead of marrying him/her … it’s such a waste of money and time for some people, especially in stupidwood.

    That is so pathetic. Nobody puts real effort into a marriage these days. And age doesn’t have anything to do with it, it’s this Hollywood dream that everything should always be diamonds and roses and passion and the second that fades they walk away. It makes me sick. I was only 20 years old when I got married and my husband was 21. We have been married 12 years this summer and are renewing our wedding vows. We have 3 children, our own home, successful careers. Yes there have been some very, very hard times including financial problems, moving across province, and having a special needs child, as well as many others but we remained committed to each other and the vows we made to each other. Marriage isn’t about how “in love” you feel, it is about working on it and communicating and staying in the trenches with the person you chose as your partner. Love is not a feeling, it’s a decision.

    I agree with you. The only thing I can see them divorcing over is if there were infidelity involved. People need to make their marriages work. And stop leaving over the small stuff.

    In The Know Says:

    The magazine spreads ALL OVER THE PLACE IN THE PAST touting how much in love they are and forever this or that …………MAKE HER LOOK LIKE WHAT SHE IS. A REAL IDIOT

    kami Says:

    if she hadn’t been pregnant they would never have married. no shock there.

    Sharlise Says:

    I don’t know why they are divorcing. It could be big stuff, or small stuff.

    If it is small stuff, it is a disgrace to not work it out.
