"Only religion forces people to stay in a marriage. People grow. People, as years go by, change. People may just get sick of the same O same O. It doesn’t mean there’s no longer love n affection it’s just maybe not the love and affection felt after 27 yrs."
"One of the Richest men in the World could not keep his wife happy. Alarming."
"This marriage stuff is really not easy even these two with all what they've achieved still split. I guess it just means they are humans just like us after all."
