Chris Rock filed for a divorce after 19 years of marriage: "I Was Just Tired of Being Married."


If you give him the "benefit of the doubt" that there is no mistress in hiding or some other person he has his sights on; Do you find his reason for filing for divorce to be refreshingly honest? Rather than bad mouth the soon to be ex he's essentially saying he's no longer "in love" and tired of being married. Had he opted to cheat the way (most unhappily married men do) everyone would be saying; "He should have left if he was so unhappy!" Is being "unhappy" enough of a reason to move on from a marriage? If the choice is to leave or stay and cheat to pursue happiness; Isn't leaving better?

    If a person does not love you,there is NO need to stay married to that person.That is only logical.An actress reported that her parents constantly argued & stayed together because of HER However, the abuse escalated until the mother shot the fath

    THANK YOU DEAREST DR. UNHAPPINESS is NO REASON for getting a divorce. If there are minor problems in a marriage, those problems should be worked out. Marriage is a give and take situation. That is what grown ups do-work out these minor problems.

    Love is a feeling! Would you marry someone you didn't love? Would you to stay with someone you didn't love? Would you want someone to stay with you who didn't love you? Take away (the feelings of love) out of marriage then cheating & abuse begins

    We're not suppose to post links but if you Google "TMZ, Chris Rock" you should get the link. I saw the movie too. It had very funny parts especially DMX singing in jail along with the scenes of Cedric the Entertainer in the hotel room.:)

    The divorce rate hovers around 50% and it's even worse among celebrities! Being "tired" or "unhappy" are code words for not being "in love". Would marry someone who didn't love you? His wife deserves to be with a man who does love her!

    Sparklea, Chris Rock was a very well known and successful stand up comedian before he got married. He use to be a regular on Saturday Night Live 24yrs ago, appeared in movies, worked with Eddie Murphy..etc Being "tired" means he is not "in love".

    "Being tired of a lifetime commitment or being (unhappily married) are not reasons for divorce" Really?

    Not being in love or "unhappy" isn't enough? Happily married people don't file for divorce! Doesn't his wife deserve a man who does love her?

    Paula you made an excellent point. It could be said is there anyone who has ever been single that wished they were in a serious relationship or marriage? I think in this situation of almost 20 years a person (knows) if this is just a "phase".:)
