All relationships begin with a honeymoon period, where harmony and happiness prevail, but sooner or later, things come to an end. Misunderstandings, disagreements, and crises emerge. Not all couples manage to navigate these challenges, which is why they sometimes part ways. Today, let’s look back at some celebrities whose relationships came to an end in 2023.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
This couple had been together for almost three decades, and when the tabloids were filled with news of their breakup, no one could believe it. Jackman and Lee Furness parted ways on good terms, realizing that they had transitioned into a more platonic relationship.
If the quarantine brought many couples closer, it had the opposite effect on them. The feelings faded, the passion cooled, but the former lovers decided that they would always support each other.
“I’m married to the greatest woman alive. She’s incredible. We are best friends, and we have a lot in common. She’s very smart… We met when she was already a big star, and I was nobody. Together we’ve been through ups and downs, and we’ll always support each other,” Jackman shared about his spouse.
Taylor Swift and Matthew Hille
Swift and Hille had known each other for a long time but claimed to have only a friendship.
Then something unexpected happened — they started a relationship, or rather, a romance that lasted only two months.
Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez
Their relationship began in an extraordinary way. Ariana was looking to buy a house and contacted a real estate agency where she met Dalton. They got married a year later, but like any couple, they faced disagreements.
In 2023, the stars temporarily went their separate ways but decided to give their relationship a second chance, spending two weeks together. However, nothing was resolved, and they realized it was time to go their separate ways. It’s sad as they were a beautiful couple.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
This couple also shocked the public with their divorce announcement, as they revealed it just two days before their twelfth anniversary. Reese Witherspoon explained that they would continue to co-parent and move forward together, so there was no need to worry about their child. The reason for the divorce was the dwindling passion. On the one hand, it’s understandable; 12 years is a long time.
“We have had many wonderful years together and will move forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect for each other after all we have created together,” the actress shared.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas
And finally, the most talked-about couple of recent times. Sophie and Joe announced their divorce on September 3, stunning their fans who thought that their family life was perfect. The celebrity couple has two children, but they’ve been very private about their personal lives. Everyone assumed that the celebrities were happy, but it turned out to be quite the opposite. Problems had started half a year ago. It appeared that the spouses were not enjoying each other’s company and, in fact, were suffering from it.
As Sophie and Joe later explained, the reasons for their divorce were differences in parenting responsibilities and their contrasting lifestyles. The “Game of Thrones” star enjoys spending her free time at parties, in contrast to the more home-oriented Jonas.
