Josh Lucas: I wouldn’t wish divorce on my worst enemy


Speaking to People magazine, Josh Lucas, who split with his wife in January, said the divorce was such a traumatic experience he wouldn’t wish it on anybody.

He explained: ”We have been through a divorce and divorce isn’t something I would wish on my worst enemy. Even when in our case we have managed to do it not only amicably but as — hopefully in the end — great friends, particularly because we have a young child that we both truly love.”

Becoming a father has changed the actor’s life and he admits he now prefers lighter roles that will benefit his son, 20-month-old Noah Rev.

”Me becoming a father has changed absolutely everything in my life, period. I am more and more wanting to be a part of things that [are] playful and more the things I see my son really responding to and enjoying,” Josh said.

    It is sad that happy parents should divorce. I can tell that divorce is a very hard thing to do. Once you were marrying and wished for this marriage to last till the rest of your days, but the fate decided different. This is a great break on everything you used to know and wished for. The divorce is devastating no mater what relationship with your ex you will stay after. This is I just the last word in breaking your family and this is very sad. I hope the couple will overcome this blow after it is sorted out and that their common sin wont suffer form it much.

    I feel so sorry for Josh Lucas, divorce is a very hard time I guess in each person’s life, as it means that it is the end of something beautiful and also it is the end of something that was supposed to last till the rest of life, at least this is how we imagine that when we are saying “I do”. And considering the fact that there is also a child in the family, ouch that was supposed to be very painful, and I cannot understand why didn’t they tried harder in order to keep the family instead of giving up on each other that easily and simply saying ok to the divorce procedure. I would fight till my last power if I was on his place, as this is what you are supposed to do after you said “I do” in front of the God and in front of the altar. My parents are together for almost sixty years, and during their mutual life, yeah they had some very difficult moments, but I have never heard them saying to each other something about divorce, no that is not the case, they were always sitting and talking and trying to find a way out from situation. This is what they taught me, so even after thirteen years of marriage I still have the wish to kill my husband sometimes, but I would die for him in the case of need. That is what I could responsibility after getting married, once and for good.

    Hmmm, I think it not nice to go through the divorce procedure in any case, whether you still have feelings for your spouse or not, as anyway the person was very dear to your heart some time ago, so I perfectly understand Josh Lucas in this situation. I would say even more, in this situation most of all I feel sorry for the kid, it doesn’t matter how many days or hours per week his dad will spent with him, still it will never be same as having him around all the time. My husband loves our son probably even more than he loves me, and he reaaaally loves me, so my point is that they do everything together, they eat, they play, and they watch games together, even though our son turned two years old just recently, so practically they are almost same age with Lucas’s kid. By saying yes to the divorce, he said no to many great things he could have do with his song, on the daily basis but now will probably don’t have the chance to.

    Well, it happens, people are getting married and after that realize that they are totally different and don’t want to live together, I can understand that. It is a pity their son will have to suffer from it, as no matter how “great” friends they will stay with the ex spouse, Josh Lucas will anyway miss a lot of dun moments of his child’s life, just because he is not there, and I am sure that this is the reason why the divorce has been so hard to him. I can certainly understand that, and I feel very sad for him, as he seems to be a good guy, for some reason I am sure that he really tried to make this marriage work, but not everything depends on him.
