A few days ago, Korean celebrity couple Gu Hye Sun and Ahn Jae Hyun had a divorce battle on Instagram—which is still ongoing. It’s messy AF and you can read the details here.
Then, last night, Liam Hemsworth reportedly filed to divorce Miley Cyrus after seven months of marriage. In the court documents, he cited “irreconcilable differences”. According to CNN, the couple has a prenup agreement, but doesn’t have community assets. Miley and Liam had a long, tumultuous relationship, which included a called-off engagement, before they got married in December last year.
When you get married, you’d think you have found The One.
But trouble can and does happen in paradise. And if you think that you’ll be spared from marital turbulence because you dated your husband for a couple of years before getting married, you just might be surprised.
“It’s not about how long you guys dated for, but what you guys made of the time together,” says Cindy Leong, a relationship coach at Relationship Studio. “You could have been with him five years but did nothing together. Or you could have been with him six months and did self-development courses together in a bid to understand each other better.”
She adds that even when you’ve been with the same person for a long time, you guys may not necessarily have everlasting marital bliss because 1. your view of the relationship might be flawed, 2. your partner may not have revealed his true self during all these years.
