    i thought they were one of the few couples who had a solid marriage. but actors who are on a movie set kissing enticing co-stars for 3 to 6 mos at a time always stray. the temptation is too strong for them. goes to show that everyone in the acting business is weak.

    Proof that almost nothing if not absolutely nothing can last in Hollywood. They were together such a long time and had two children together and were lucky enough to marry long before his career took off. Now that it has they split. All around a very sad story. What I found interesting is that his rep said their split was a “mutual decision” yet you don’t have a joint public statement from both of them. Also that she is the one that filed for divorce and not also him. Sounds like she may have been the one that was upset with something that happened with their marriage. I have always had a high opinion of Marsden and would hate to think he might have done something wrong to end his marriage but it is Hollywood and wouldn’t be the first time this has happened. One of the things I always found charming about him is that he had been married and a father for so long and seemed to balance work and a family life. Often when one partner becomes” bigger” than their spouse or marriage it all falls apart. I just hope he doesn’t turn into one of those actors that starts dating everyone for the fame. It would be really sad to see. He doesn’t need to ride the presswhore dating train in order to be a true A list leading actor. He has the talent and the appeal to get there on his own with hard work. I wish them both the best of luck and you never know maybe they will have a change of heart about the divorce. Sometimes the threat of a divorce can actually help save a dying marriage but who really knows what happened. Who did what and how much damage has been done. I do know I don’t trust the statement from his rep. Their job is the spin things for their client to make sure things look best for them in the public eye.

    @JACK MAN: Are you serious? You think mutual beauty is the foundation for a solid marriage?
