This Famous Comedian Is Divorcing His Much Younger Wife—Kind Of (We’ll Explain)

We recently shared a sci­en­tific study with you that revealed a con­nec­tion between mar­riage and heart health—it showed that mar­riage can actu­ally reduce the risk of heart dis­ease for older men. But come­dian Andrew Dice Clay, 56, and his much younger wife, 31-year-old Valerie Vasquez, might beg to differ.

The celebrity cou­ple has filed for divorce after four years of mar­riage, but here’s the kicker—they’re still stay­ing together. Andrew Dice Clay says he’s still very much in love with his wife, and vice versa, but their May-December rela­tion­ship suf­fered sig­nif­i­cantly since walk­ing down the aisle in Feb­ru­ary 2010. So, to try and sal­vage their May-December rela­tion­ship, the celebrity cou­ple will divorce and go back to just dating—talk about hav­ing the best of both worlds.

The word ‘mar­riage’ was putting a pres­sure on our rela­tion­ship and since we filed [for divorce], we’ve been more in love and have had more respect for each other than ever before,” said Clay, adding that they even cel­e­brated their divorce together with a roman­tic dinner.

What do you think: Do you agree that get­ting mar­ried can put a strain on a May-December rela­tion­ship? Would you ever agree to a divorce, but still stay together?
