It has only been about a week since Hilary Duff filed for divorce from her husband Mike Comrie after five years of marriage.
The couple split in 2014 but the divorce was only filed when Mike was accused of propositioning a woman for sex in Beverley Hills last month.
Mike and Hilary have one child together, Luca and are still on good terms but it sounds as if the divorce has taken its toll on Hilary’s outlook on love. Speaking to Cosmopolitan, the singer said she’s not sure she believes in ‘happily ever after’ anymore:
“I don’t want to sound bitter because I’m definitely not, but I don’t know if people are meant to be together forever. Things happen over a long relationship that you can’t always fight. A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel really great, but there are also huge sacrifices.”
Speaking about getting married at the tender age of 22, Hilary said it just made sense: “Mike and I were very in love when we met. We both really wanted to get married. I’d been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me.”
However, Hilary says, things began to shift: “It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match we used to be. I’m lucky for the person he is and I am and how we decided to handle this.”
Wow, it seems like these two definitely have the ‘mature break-up’ down!
