The same happened in the life of ABC News Breakfast host, Lisa Millar. She revealed that her success at her job led to the downfall of her marriage.

The ABC News Breakfast host, Lisa Millar served as a foreign correspondent before she landed this job of a TV host. The previous gig demanded long and grueling working hours. And she stated recently that this had a major part to play in her divorce.
Lisa started with her current job in August 2019. And she was for 11 years overseas. She covered major and breaking news such as the terrorist attacks of Washington DC and London. Lisa was 24/7 into her work and could not have any quality family time with her husband. She did not reveal the identity of her ex-husband but said:
‘I don’t mind saying that I’m divorced and that the stresses of the job would absolutely have been a factor that contributed to that.’
