Guess Valentine’s Day really is over.
Oscar-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden announced through a representative that she and her husband, Thaddaeus Scheel, are divorcing after nearly 15 years.
E! reported the statement: “For the sake of the couple’s three children, Harden would like to request that the family’s privacy be respected at this time. No further comments will be made on this matter, and we thank you for your understanding.”
Their children are Eulala, 13, and 7-year-old twins Hudson and Julitta. No word yet on what the custody arrangements will be.
It’s difficult enough to see a marriage crumble, but one that’s lasted so long and includes children in the mix is even more crushing.
We can only imagine what Eulala, Hudson and Julitta are going through, watching their parents split. Even if their famous folks’ divorce isn’t as public, bitter and overanalyzed as that of Seal and Heidi Klum, they’re still feeling the pain and wondering why.
We wish the family strength and peace in the rough months to come.
