Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are calling it quits just two years after tying the knot. Did they give their marriage a fair shot?
Although it seems as if the genetically blessed duo of Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds should just be settling into married life after saying ‘I do’ two years ago, instead, they’ve announced their separation. Should they have tried harder to make their marriage work?
Let me say this straight away: I have never been married. I do not know the particulars of what occurs behind closed doors in a relationship where both partners wear a ring. But I do know this: everything in life worth having takes work and time.
Ryan and Scarlett may have rushed getting engaged — doing so after only a year of dating — and it appears that they’re employing a similar haste in ending their marriage. Two years is NOT an eternity.
However, word on the street is that Scarlett wanted out, and has for awhile. Plus, who can forget how she barely remembered to thank her hubby (who happens to be one of the most lusted after men in the world, PS) when she won her Tony in June?
Do I think they should have given their marriage more time to work? Absolutely. But do I think being completely unhappy in a relationship is OK? No, I do not. Two years is a long time to be miserable.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Scarlett and Ryan have tried harder to make it work?
