Finally, a Friends-related relationship complication that doesn't involve perennially unlucky-in-love star Jennifer Aniston! (Of course, that whole perennially unlucky in love thing is really exaggerated by the media, mind you!) This time it centers on her best friend, Courtney Cox Arquette. The actress and her longtime husband David Arquette have announced they have separated after 11 years of marriage. What a bum out. They seemed like such a fun couple. At least he seems like a fun dude from his appearances on The Howard Stern Show.
The pair released a joint statement which read as follows: "We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together. We are comfortable with the boundaries that we have established for each other during this separation and we hope that our friends, family, fans and the media also show us respect, dignity, understanding and love at this time as well."
Their sole child, daughter Coco, is 6. Cox admitted in a recent magazine cover story that the couple has sought marriage counseling in the past.
I can already envision the flood of tabloid stories about Aniston and Cox hitting the dating scene together in the wake of this news. Let the ladies and their love lives alone, please.
Do you think this relationship can be saved?
