GMA's Lara Spencer & Husband David Haffenreffer Split After 15 Years

Good Morning America co-host Lara Spencer and her husband of fifteen years David Haffenreffer have split.

“After a lot of thought, care and consideration, we have decided to end our marriage. It’s a sad decision that did not come easily, especially because we respect and love each other and our children. They remain our top priority. We will raise them and care for them together,” the couple told Page Six in a joint statement.

The split is reportedly amicable and the couple just went on vacation with their two kids Kate and Duff.

    didn’t even know she was married. she rarely mentions him. and they look like brother and sister, weird

    I do not care for her as a tv personality. However, I hope they can work it out in the end. You don’t spend 15 years with someone you don’t love. Even the hardest bumps in the road you can overcome in time. They look so much like one another.

    I’m so sick of “respect and love each other” being given as an excuse after a marriage break-up. Another one is “great friends”. If you’re great friends and have love and respect for each other, then you wouldn’t leave you marriage.

    I think she just got too into herself.

    I agree just cant figure that out, my ex remains best friends to this day, they divorced close to 25 years ago, she had very young children when we first met and started dating, I never heard them argue or even raise their voice to one another, they would always take the girls to the movies, and made all decisions concerning the girls together and without arguing!!! Made me sick, I asked one time why they ever got divorced and she said that they just couldnt live together, she was 16 and he was 29 when they married I always thought the age thing was the reason but she denies it!! Im divorced for almost 30 years and to this day it makes me angry to hear my ex’s voice over the phone, let alone come face to face with her, none of this best friends BS for me, sorry, you rip my heart out there is just no way we can “be friends”, just doesnt work that way in my mind anyway!!

    “We just can’t live together”, see that’s what I mean! I think folks just decide they want other people. It’s boredom. They love the person as having spent a significant amount of their life with them and had children with them (which is a VERY bonding experience that lasts for a lifetime), but when it’s all said and done their marriage relationship lost romance and sex desire, and they became more like best friends or brother/sister. I guess that’s what it is.

    Have to agree with you on that one, boredom can and will sneak up real fast, Laura’s success on GMA that made her a star probably didnt help either!! I know the last 5 years of mine was separate bedrooms, and not so much as a high five as far as contact goes! LOL! I’m not so sure on the “wanting other people” I think people get comfortable with one another, and a lot of times you will see the divorced or separated couple maintain the sex with one another, that way they can stay within their comfort level and they know what each other wants, and of course, what works! I’m to nervous to be with anyone else, and I dont believe I’m alone when it comes to that. One thing is for sure, Laura’s ex or soon to be ex should have quite the alimony check!! LOL!

    One other point I forgot to include, it seemed to me that my marriage was just fine while I was on active duty and deployed all the time, my last 5 years in the Marine Corps I was gone to either Iraq or Afghanistan over 4 of those years, seemed like the marriage was strong at those times, but it probably wasnt, I just had other “more important” issues on my mind, like getting all my Marines home alive and in one piece, not to mention doing the same for myself!! LOL!
