The coronavirus pandemic is being viewed as a chance for couples and families to become closer.
However, for one Hollywood couple it looks like it’s had the opposite effect.
On Sunday reality show star Kristin Cavallari announced she was divorcing her husband Jay Cutler.
Their separation stunned fans and of course speculation is already starting on why they’re calling it quits.
While fans await details of their divorce, let’s take a look back at their relationship and a few reasons why by may be ending their marriage.
Kristin Cavallari rose to fame thanks to the MTV reality shows “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills.”
After the shows ended, Cavallari concentrated on pursing a career in acting and fashion.
In 2010, her personal life heated up when she began dating NFL player Jay Cutler.
Cutler was quarterback for The Chicago Bears when he and Kristin began their relationship.
After six months of dating, they became engaged in April 2011.
Their wedding took place on June 7, 2013.
The couple then settled down in Nashville, where they raised their children: Camden, Jaxon, and Saylor.
The couple were featured on the E! reality series “Very Cavallari,” and seemed very much in love.
However, fans would soon learn that not everything was as perfect as it was onscreen.
The number one reason for a majority of divorces is irreconcilable differences.
Often times a couple just grows apart. Due to job, family, and other demands; it’s hard for the couple to find time to spend together.
Kristin was a busy woman with three kids, filming her reality show, and running her fashion line.
As for Jay, he retired in 2017 after 11 years in the NFL. Since his retirement, he’s been a stay-at-home dad, and is featured on his wife’s show.
With the two at different paths in their lives, it’s easy to see why they may have grown apart.
Another big reason for Hollywood divorces is because one of the spouses is cheating, and many wonder if that’s the case with Kristin and Jay.
Even though Kristin said in their divorce announcement that they had grown apart, court documents reveal she cited the reason as marital misconduct.
Marital misconduct means that one spouse did something to cause anguish for their partner.
Cheating is considered a form of marital misconduct, and many are wondering if Jay had an affair behind Kristin’s back.
Kristin’s reason for citing that for her divorce and ramped up more speculation about the couple’s split.
While fans are mourning the end of Kristin and Jay’s marriage, many are wondering if there’s a possibility of reconciliation.
In the past, we’ve seen celebrities file for divorce then withdraw their petition.
While fans would love nothing more than to see Kristin and Jay get back together, from the way it looks it’s not happening.
It also seems that their divorce could get ugly.
The couple is already fighting over their children. Kristin is demanding primary custody, while Jay wants joint custody.
Kristin is also asking that Jay pay child support.
Another little tidbit is that Jay is also accusing Kristin of marital misconduct.
Kristin and Jay’s divorce continues to be shrouded in mystery, and in the coming weeks new details will likely emerge what went wrong for the two.
