Why Brangelina’s split isn’t shocking


Brangelina has been the hottest couple in Hollywood for more than a decade. But as of Sept. 15, nobody can say that anymore.

Angelina Jolie, 41, has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, 52, after just two years of marriage. The couple had been together since 2004 and has six children together, three of which are adopted.

Many people were shocked following the news of this power couple’s split, however, I am not one of them, and here’s why.

The couple met on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2004, while Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston. Not even a year after the couple had met, Pitt divorced Aniston and started a public relationship with Jolie.

No relationship can be built upon the failing of another relationship. However, they seemed to bust that myth from 2004, but then they came crashing down.

The couple was dating for a little more than nine years when Pitt finally proposed and one must wonder, why the wait? They have the money for a wedding, they already have kids together and live together full time, they combine their finances and celebrate holidays with family.

After a certain point in a relationship, you realize if it’s going to work, or if it’s not. Well, it’s clear now that it isn’t going to work. They should have saved themselves (and the rest of the world) the heartbreak.

Jolie cited irreconcilable differences and has asked for full custody of the kids, asking Pitt to be given visitation rights.

According to thedailymail.com, they have both asked for their privacy during this difficult time, and want to make sure they handle this the best for their children.
