Both Jen and Marc appeared very much in love right from the day Jen broke up with her then husband, Ben Affleck. Jen would often make statements like, marriage ain't easy but everything about hers is great. The two also have two twins together as sign of their never-dying love for each other. In January 2011, rumors began circulating about Jennifer spending more time with some other men than Marc during the preparation of the 10th season of American Idol. However, Jen and Marc dimissed these rumors by once again appearing in front of the paparazzi like a couple who has never ever had a fight. They once again openly expressed lots of PDA and mush for one another in front of the media and at interviews. However on 15th July, 2011, Marc and Jen made an announcement that they made an extremely difficult decision to finally call their marriage off. After every last bid to salvage, their marriage failed. Although the actual reason behind their split hasn't been found, news says it is because of certain “trust issues” between the two of them.

This showbiz couple met for the first time in the year 1990 on the sets of their movie, 'Days of Thunder'. Slowly and steadily, the two of them fell in love. Soon on Christmas eve, they got married. This was the beginning of an eternal love story. At least that's what everyone thought. Aww, so much in love the two of them looked whenever they would come together! They also have two lovely children, Isabella Jane and Connor. However unfortunate as it may seem, this love story too was not meant to stay forever. After 10 whole years, their marriage too ended into a contentious divorce. Today, Tom is happily married to Katie Holmes, while Nicole's with Keith Urban. Nicole recently in an interview even stated that she was stifled during her 10 year marriage with Tom Cruise, and felt like an individual only after she split with him.

America's sweetheart Sandra Bullock and bad boy Jesse met for the first time when Sandra arranged for her godson to meet Jesse as a Christmas present to him. Call it love at first sight or chemistry, the two of them found it nearly impossible to stay without each other. For every Red Carpet event, the two of them would make their grand entrance together. Sandra and Jesse even entered into a custody battle with Jesse's ex-wife for the custody of his daughter. The world felt that Sandra had finally found her match. It is said trust is the most essential aspect of a love relationship. In the absence of trust, a relationship just cannot survive. And same was the case with the two of them. After Jesse repeatedly kept on breaking Sandra's trust, Sandra felt that she just couldn't take it anymore. In March 2010, a scandal came to the surface when a number of women claimed to have had an affair with Jesse after he was married to Sandra. Finally on 28th June 2010, the two of them legally separated.

Who didn’t hear of this couple and their love story? Their marriage of 25 long years was a clear sign of how much in love the two of them were. They first met in 1977 at a charity tennis tournament that took place at Maria’s mother’s place. Sparks flew and soon in 1986, they tied the knot at St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church. In spite of several linkups of Arnold, Maria silently bore it all. Maybe somewhere down the line, she felt that someday he would change. However after 25 years of her marriage, she came to know that Arnold has had a love child with none other than their own household staff. This was more than she could take and she filed a divorce on 1st July, 2011. So after numerous emotional battles that turned their relationship toxic, this marriage, which had so much of hope, entered into a bitter divorce as well.
