You would think an individual who hosts a show all about love and relationships would be successful in his own love life, though this isn’t the case with the host of TV’s most popular dating show.
Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor” host, will be a bachelor once again. A spokeswoman for the 40-year-old TV personality stated Thursday that Harrison and his wife are ending their marriage. Harrison and his wife, Gwen, have been married for 18 years and have two children together.
In a joint statement, the couple stated that though we have made this incredibly difficult decision to separate, our love and mutual respect remain, and we look forward to sharing in the lives of our wonderful children. The couple have two children together, a son, 9-year-old Joshua, and a daughter, 7-year-old Taylor.
Harrison has hosted the ABC dating series and its various spin-offs since “The Bachelor” debuted in 2002. Don’t expect the host to appear as the next man looking for love on his own series. Harrison told reporters on Thursday that having just announced my divorce to the world, having two kids and trying to start a new life, I’m thinking I wouldn’t exactly be a great candidate to be the bachelor right now or probably any time soon.
He admits he has learned so much about love from the men and women who have appeared on the shows saying now that he has felt heartbreak, he know what these people have gone through and what they’re searching for.
Although Harrison may think the show “so genius”, the statistics on the series’ couples staying together are pretty dismal. After sixteen seasons of “The Bachelor” and seven seasons of “The Bachelorette” only four couples are still together.
When a couple makes the decision to divorce, especially in a high asset divorce, it is wise to seek legal counsel from an experienced divorce attorney.
