Ben Stiller and his wife Christine Taylor shocked fans when they made the announcement that they were calling it quits on their marriage after a whopping 17 years together! Despite having seemed like the most perfect Hollywood couple with their two children, the duo still failed to hold their matrimony together. But why did the famous couple decide to go their separate ways? This is long marriage according to Hollywood standards. 17 years is a lifetime and in Hollywood it is more than a lifetime. Possibly the length of marriage has to do with Ben Stiller and his parents who had a lengthy marriage and maybe he was influenced by their morally strong approach to marriage.
The couple also had been in many movies together so it is possible they just had been tide together for too long and after nearly two decades it was time to go their separate ways.
The two children of Ben Stiller and Christine Taylors’ marriage are 11 year old Quinlan and 15 year old Ella. Apparently they have been very cooperative with the details of the divorce so the time share arrangement does not seem to be a problem and child custody litigation might not be on the horizon which is a blessing for the young children.
