“We work at it,” the actress said at the time. “I’m not going to glamorize it or glorify it – we go through tough times like everybody else, but we love each other very much. We try not to be away from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and we try to find new ways to communicate.”

    I have notice the strange tendency when people love each other, consider them a family, but split. What a heck is going on with the world. I wonder what the reasons of such spilt are. I do not think the son would be happy in a divorced family. Well, another family is always a dark story. I hope soon the cause will come up to light to satisfy my wild curiosity.)) Yes, I am non-improvable! LOL.
