Another marriage has gone down the drain as Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer are officially parting ways after nine years together.
The couple released a joint statement saying that after much thought and soul-searching, they have decided to go their separate ways. But Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer also stated that they will remain to be devoted parents to their two children; Ruby Maguire, 9 and Otis Maguire, 7.
“…Our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship,” the couple said.
It goes without saying that both Maguire and Meyer chose to separate amicably. Nevertheless, ending a marriage is no easy thing despite the constantly changing romances seen in Hollywood.
Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer met back in 2003 and got married four years later in a small ceremony in Hawaii, attended by family and close friends, including longtime friend Leonardo DiCaprio. The former couple were based in California.
At the time of their marriage, Jennifer gushed about her upcoming nuptials.
“Let’s say that this is truly the best time of my life…” she said.
Over the course of their marriage, Maguire and Meyer did not talk about each other much. In 2007, Maguire opened up about his family life, saying that his life at the moment “is in transition now with friendships” and where he will live. One of his big priorities in life is to settle down and be financially stable, as he previously admitted to having a rocky childhood.
Maguire and Meyer are now unfortunately included in the list of celebrity divorces this year, including the divorce between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard who were only married last year. The most talked about divorce this year is the split between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who have been together since 2005 and were married back in 2014.
