Christine Taylor Opens Up About Splitting Up With Ben Stiller And Why They're Back Together Now
Christine Taylor gets honest about why she split from Ben Stiller, and why the couple is now back together.
Relationships can sometimes be tough. And if anything that may be more true with high-profile couples than everybody else. Nearly half of all marriages end in divorce in the U.S., regardless of the level of fame involved. But Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor have become that rare couple that looked like they were headed in that direction, but have since reunited.
Christine Taylor recently appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show where she talked honestly about her relationship with Ben Stiller. She explained that the two of them had gotten married and had their first child all within a short period of time, and as such, they found themselves potentially wanting different things as they got older than they once had. Taylor said…
People change over time, that’s not exactly new information. While couples might expect to be in love forever, all sorts of things can change that cause people to reevaluate those feelings. Growing apart is a phrase often used to describe when two partners don’t necessarily change the way they feel about each other, but see their life moving forward in a direction that makes the relationship more difficul. And that certainly seems to be what happened here.
Oftentimes when couples separate it seems clear that divorce is the next step .But every once in a while that doesn’t happen, and the separation actually brings a couple closer together. In this particular case, it may also have been the global pandemic that actually helped things in the relationship; Christine Taylor says that it meant that they could focus on each other and really talk, as there was little else to do. She continued…
The pandemic was a rough time for a lot of people, and the stress of it all certainly ended more than a few relationships, but it seems that at least in this one case, it was a good thing. Check out Taylor's full comments below.
This is the rare case where a couple is able to find happiness after nearly losing it. Considering how often we see celebrity divorces, and how often those divorces like that of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can drag on and become quite brutal, it's nice to see a happy ending.
