It is most disheartening to hear about splits and divorces, be it as close as family or as far as Bollywood. I just read on Hindustan Times that Hrithik Roshan has confirmed their split (with Suzanne after 13 years). He’s being nice about it, reinstating his belief in the institution of marriage and asking press and his fans to respect their privacy.

The reason for the decision, from what has been communicated through official channels, is Suzanne’s conflict with the family and that she has gotten “tired of continously trying…”

The split was being speculated from some time, after the couple stopped making public appearances, Suzanne’s moving out of their Juhu home, absence from important family functions, etc.

Although the gory details of divorce are yet to hit the papers, the split is confirmed.

We wish all the best to couple, and hope they get through these difficult times with as little damage as possible (especially for the kids – hrehaan and hridhaan).

This sad news makes me wonderif marriages are really as strong as we are led to believe? And if this is the kind of cost you pay to be in the entertainment industry?
