Idina, who won a Tony award for her role in Wicked and has also guest starred on Glee, opened up about her marriage to People in April, and confessed that it wasn’t always easy.

“We work at it,” she said at the time. “I’m not going to glamorize it or glorify it – we go through tough times like everybody else, but we love each other very much. We try not to be away from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and we try to find new ways to communicate.”

It sounds like they may have been struggling for a while.
