The Real Reason Why Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee’s Marriage Failed
Even the strongest couples have their worst moments. For 27 years, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee stood side by side, weathering the storms of fame and fortune. However, it was their friendship that ruined their happy marriage. It should have strengthened their bond, yet quite the opposite happened.
They were together for 27 years.
In 1995, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness met while filming Correlli and decided to tie the knot despite the fact that she was 13 years older. In 1996, they said their vows at a church near Melbourne, Australia. They’ve been sharing sweet pics from that day on social media to celebrate their anniversaries. Later they adopted their son, Oscar, and then their daughter, Ava.
The couple recently decided to divorce.
Hugh and Deborra-Lee announced their separation, saying, “We have been blessed to share almost 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting, and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth. Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness. We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives. This is the sole statement either of us will make.”
The reason is not what we expected.
Even though they tried to fix things, they eventually decided to split up while staying friends. One source revealed, “They’re forever linked, forever together with the children they have. But after the past few years, the love they had for each other turned more into a friendship” which got broken, and it really put a strain on their relationship.
Fans are heartbroken.
One user wrote, “I’ve always thought they were a great couple. It’s especially sad when long-term marriages, especially those with children, end.” Others started sharing their advice, someone mentioned, “You can love someone, but not be in love. I’ve fallen in and out of romantic love with my partner for 30 years. Each time I fall out of romantic love, I do something to bring it back.”
Another said, “I just celebrated 45 years of marriage. It is a lot of work to live with someone that long, you just have to pick your battles. I feel for the younger crowd finding their souls mates in this swipe left or right world.”
