Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Split!

Gasps were heard as the news spread about Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony splitting, leaving even celebrities shocked and saddened. After seven years, “We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters,” Jennifer and Marc said in a statement. “It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”

Most are left with this shocking news wondering how do good marriages go bad? Jennifer and Marc certainly appeared as a shining example of a good marriage. There seemed very happy together, often renewing their vows, publically being very supportive of one another, enjoying co-parenting, and working together professionally. So what went wrong?

There are several possible reasons a “good” marriage goes bad. The first being that what looks like a good marriage to the outside world actually is not.  Social graces and social faces are everywhere, not just with Hollywood couples. Another cause, couples with small children are very vulnerable to splitting due to the incredible changes in the dynamics of their relationship.  If they do not have the tools to adjust, often times the marriage will end. A further likelihood is allowing the pressures and incredible stressors from work, children, finances, and daily life to deplete each person and then ultimately the marriage.

As of now, we do not know how Jennifer and Marc found their way to the end of their marriage. However, we can all certainly feel for how painful and difficult it is for them to go through.
