It's likely that you've heard about the country singer Jewel in Massachusetts, or perhaps you've heard about her soon-to-be ex-husband who is known for his rodeo career. They have been together for 16 years, close to six of which have been while they've been married. They are now reportedly getting a divorce, hoping to find greater happiness outside their relationship.
According to Jewel, 40, she and her husband would like to continue raising their son as partners. Their child will be 3 in July. They are reportedly committed to raising their child together as friends. She claims they hold each other in high esteem and believe they will be able to grow from their separation.
There has been no real news on why the couple has decided to split up, but Jewel claimed that it was because the relationship had stifled them, stopping them from growing anymore as people. Since they felt that they could be happier apart, divorce was the only answer that made sense.
