Jennie Garth And Peter Facinelli Divorce: What Went Wrong Between The Couple
In her 2014 memoir, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde, Garth wrote that when Facinelli became more famous, she noticed a change. Facinelli went out and made a name for himself, leaving Garth to be a stay-at-home mom. She has been proud of her husband, but after visiting therapists and trying to work things out for a while, it became too much.
“I was happy for him that his career was going to the next level, but now I can see that I was also feeling a bit resentful and itchy in ways I didn’t know how to explain. … All I know is that I felt like I was waiting: for him to come home, for him to be free to join me in our everyday family life, and for the next job that would take him far away from us again “she said.
Then, one day, he went back home and asked for a divorce.
“The ground that had been cracking and shifting finally split open and pretty much swallowed me whole: Peter came home and told me that he didn’t think he wanted to be married to me any longer and that he thought it would be best for us to separate so that we could figure out where we stood with each other,” she wrote.
Still, she was surprised when Facinelli said he wanted to split up. “I wouldn’t even let myself think that my husband might also be at the end of his rope. Now I know how upset he was that he couldn’t get in touch with me. I was crushed when I found out that he no longer loved me.
Facinelli Spoke About His Divorce From Garth
Peter Facinelli talked about how his relationship with his ex-wife Jennie Garth changed over the years and how it affected his new relationship with his fiancée Lily Anne Harrison.
“I think in the beginning of a relationship, it’s great,” the 48-year-old actor said on the “Allison Interviews” podcast on April 12. “It’s great that you have this honeymoon period.”
“Someone might say something that hurts a bit. “If the other person lets it happen, it could become a habit,” Facinelli said. “So, bad things can become routine, like how you treat each other or how you let the other person talk to you in a certain way.”
The actor from “Unbreakable Boy” said that “everyone has a bad day,” but it’s hard to get back to the good times when your partner’s hurtful actions become more common.
“If that person talks to you or does something in a certain way, they feel like they can do it again because you didn’t tell them, ‘That hurt my feelings.’ You didn’t speak up,” Facinelli continued. “All of a sudden, you get used to it, it gets worse, and then you get angry.”
The New Yorker, who has three daughters with Garth—Luca, 24, Lola, 19, and Fiona, 15—also said that it’s hard to break these habits once they’re set.
“A marriage is like a tree. “At first, if it starts to bend, you can fix it, but if you let it keep going in that direction, you can’t bend it back because it has grown and hardened that way,” he said. Every relationship is different,” Facinelli said. When you’re with this [new] person, you’ll act differently than I would have with my ex-wife.”
