Musical icon, Jewel, recently announced that she and her husband of 16 years, Ty Murray, are getting a divorce. She announced it to the public via her blog stating that she wanted her fans to hear the news directly.
As many break ups that occur in Hollywood these days, this particular misfortune in their marriage shocked me. Still, even with the news of their break-up, they still manage to exude love from their relationship.
“…We wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together,” Jewel wrote on her blog.
After 10 years of dating, the couple married in 2008 and had their first child in 2011. The couple wrote a beautiful piece on Jewel’s blog explaining how they were seeking growth and the separation was necessary for this to happen.
She graciously thanked her fans for their support, as did her husband. The letter was written in love, even with the unfortunate news. We wish the couple best wishes as they venture forth toward the next chapter of their life.
