Why Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones’ Marriage Might Be Over for Good

Sugar Daddy Michael Douglas And atherine Zeta-JonesActor Michael Dou­glas, 68, recently said that there was “no cri­sis” in his mar­riage to 43-year-old Cather­ine Zeta-Jones and that their split was only tem­po­rary. But it doesn’t look like the celebrity cou­ple will be rekin­dling their mar­riage any time soon because Dou­glas appears to be mov­ing out. The actor was spot­ted mov­ing a large suit­case and sev­eral bags out of their fam­ily home in Man­hat­tan, New York. How­ever, he was still report­edly wear­ing his wed­ding band. Zeta-Jones was also seen wear­ing her wed­ding ring, so maybe there’s hope for this celebrity couple?

Whether they patch up their mar­riage or pre­pare for a divorce, both Dou­glas and Zeta-Jones are report­edly vow­ing to do what­ever is in the best inter­ests of their two kids, who are only 10 and 13 years old.

If their mar­riage does end in divorce, the celebrity cou­ple does have an iron­clad prenup in place, which guar­an­tees Zeta-Jones mil­lions. Even still, the prenup would prob­a­bly end up sav­ing Dou­glas a fortune—he had to fork up a whop­ping $45.0 mil­lion to his first wife when their mar­riage ended in 2000.

What do you think: Will Michael Dou­glas and Cather­ine Zeta-Jones get back together, or are they headed for a divorce?

    45 MILLION DOLLARS GIVEN AWAY TO HIS EX WIFE ??? Why not just call AAAA Escorts every day for a decade and be a rich, happy and sat­is­fied man among men?

    I hope they can rec­on­cile. I under­stand that, in addi­tion to Michael’s can­cer, Cather­ine has strug­gled with being bi-polar. If they can learn to cope, they prob­a­bly need one another more now than ever.
