Patrick Dempsey on Fixing His Marriage: 'You've Got to Keep At It'
Here’s what the 50-year-old Bridget Jones’s Baby star had to share:
On re-thinking split from wife Jillian: “Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of. I didn’t feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work. That’s where it started….It’s always destabilizing when you’re potentially breaking up a family or you have a big section of your life that’s ending,”
On working out their issues: “Everybody has their own path. Jill and I decided it was time to work on our issues and improve. We wanted to be role models for our kids like, okay, if you have differences, you can work them out.”
On fixing the problems: “You’ve got to keep at it. You’ve got to communicate, and stay open and not get lazy. And not give up. And lots of sex!”
