The reason for the divorce

The couple was a happy one. But what started off so well went haywire in between. They began emphasizing more on their daily routines and failed to meet the challenges of marriage. An insider who is close to Rachael told Hollywood Reporter:

“They both, unfortunately, fell out of what made them love each other in the first place and instead dived into routine rather than embracing the struggles and ups and downs marriages often sometimes take. They didn’t do anything for their relationship to improve it. Every moment of their attention was either devoted for their kids or themselves and their careers. They really lost track of being a couple. There was never any infidelity and they both are very happy that they are mature enough to get to this conclusion because they will always have respect for each other but the romance is gone.”

They were not happy to separate and did not want it. But they soon realized that given the present circumstances, it was the best option. The source further explained:

“It’s very sad but they both know this will be great for their futures both personally and professionally. Though their relationship fell apart, its only going to enhance their future relationship as co-parents. That is of extreme importance to them and they really look forward to seeing what their future holds. If they had to break up, they both did it for the right reasons and there shouldn’t be much drama between them moving forward. It’s unfortunate but something that was needed and will end up working out for all involved in the long run.”
