It turns out that Michael Douglas’s admission that he got throat cancer because of oral s** was the last straw for Catherine Zeta-Jones.
After 13 years of being together, the Hollywood couple made the announcement yesterday that they are going their own ways in order to “assess and work on their marriage.” According to rumors, Catherine wanted out of the relationship after Michael revealed that the HPV infection, which is transmitted through oral and sexual contact, was the cause of his cancer. The fact that the actor, who is 68 years old, did not make it known that he contracted the virus before he met his wife creates an uncomfortable situation. According to an article published in the Sun, “From there, things only got worse.” You don’t say.
Douglas has been battling cancer, which he eventually won the battle against in 2011. Because Catherine suffers from bipolar II disease, she has sought treatment for depression on two separate occasions, the most recent of which was in the month of May. Despite the fact that it seemed as though the two people had been leading separate lives for some time, the pair made the decision to dissolve their relationship at the conclusion of that month.
According to a resident of the neighborhood around their estate in Bedford, Connecticut, who spoke with The Sun, “We haven’t seen much of Michael or Catherine here since approximately 18 months.” The majority of his friends live in New York. While she enjoys going horseback riding and playing golf, he prefers to hang out in the city. They are significantly distinct from one another.
Michael, who is married to Catherine and has two kids named Dylan and Carys, is taking a vacation alone in Europe right now. He was seen yesterday on a friend’s yacht off the coast of Sardinia, looking thoughtful before going to France for the Deauville Film Festival, where he met Catherine for the first time in 1998.
Michael had only recently stated that “Real love requires effort.” This led me to believe that the difficulties they had faced together had only served to strengthen their connection. Love is a strong emotion that arises from the very center of your being, but it requires attention and maintenance in order to thrive. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that it’s important to never take love for granted. If you look after it and provide it food, it will continue to develop. After the initial stages on a bodily and emotional level, it will progress further.
It is believed that Catherine is currently in New York spending time with the couple’s children.
