What a summer! While some have recently entered the ranks of marital bliss (yours truly) others have decided to say goodbye to their union. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani , Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, and the latest duo, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green. What is in the water this season? Let’s take a closer look at these relationships and their reasons for “consciously uncoupling.”
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert seemed obsessed with one another. Actually, let me rephrase that. Blake Shelton seemed obsessed with Miranda Lambert. He couldn’t get two words out without name dropping her name. Guess the obsession wasn’t strong enough because these two announced their divorce this summer after four years of marriage. Accusations of infidelity on both sides were the fuel that fueled this fire. We have a feeling the timing of their divorce was pretty convenient considering another one of Blake’s co-judges on The Voice also just filed for divorce.
Yep, that’s right, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have called it quits after 13 years of marriage and three children. The rumor is she filed for divorce because of her speculation of Gavin cheating. Isn’t the person that is accusing often the one that has a secret? We all know Blake Shelton has a thing for blondes and Gwen sure does have that going for her….platinum to be exact. Plus, they were both judges on The Voice together. Seems a bit fishy to us. Besides, let’s be honest, Bush has no relevancy anymore and as far as groupies go, that ship has sailed.
Oh Ben, what did you do? The nanny? Really? How cliché! It’s usually a good idea to have an affair with the woman who is taking care of your three children, and we are not talking about their mother! It seems that Mr. Affleck channeled his character in Gone Girl and went after the young thing. Too bad Jennifer isn’t evil enough to put him through what his wife in the movie did. That sure would teach him a lesson. These two filed for divorce right after their ten-year anniversary.
And finally, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green. Quite honestly, we could have called this one a while ago. For starters, she is just so much hotter than he is. They have two kids together and were married for five years but together for 11. Yes, she was 18 and he was 31 when they first started dating, which means they had a lot common. They initially got engaged in 2006 but after three years called it off. They decided to go for round two and got engaged again in 2012 and married a month later in Hawaii. Guess they figured if they didn’t do it right away, it wouldn’t work. Suppose they should have learned that lesson. So all guys out there, Megan is single!
