Just a few weeks after officially filing for divorce, Hilary Duff is opening up about her divorce.
In the April issue of Cosmopolitan, Duff opens up about her divorce from retired hockey player Mike Comrie. The two were married for four years and share one son, Luca.
“Mike and I were very in love when we met,” Duff, 27, said. “We both really wanted to get married. I’d been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn’t, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy.”
She goes on to say that eventually the two just started to grow apart. “It wasn’t working well enough to stay together, but there was still a lot of love involved,” she said. “It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match that we used to be. I’m lucky for the person he is and I am and how we decided to handle this.”
Life After Marriage and Divorce
Post-marriage life has caused Duff to look at love and relationships a little differently.
“I don’t want to sound bitter because I’m definitely not, but I don’t know if people are meant to be together forever. Things happen over a long relationship that you can’t always fight. A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel really great, but there are also huge sacrifices. I just always want to fight for happiness.”
