Even although Demi Moore and Bruce Willis had been as soon as the “it” couple of Hollywood, Moore claims that she and Willis “didn’t really know each other” whereas they had been married. She even goes as far as to confess that they turned nearer after their divorce.

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis had been married for 11 years

Moore and Willis had been collectively for over a decade. To the surface world, they appeared like the right couple. In virtually each {photograph} snapped by the paparazzi, they couldn’t appear to maintain their fingers off one another. But pictures will be deceiving.

According to Moore’s not too long ago revealed memoir, their marriage confronted a number of hurdles. This was largely as a result of they hardly ever bought to see one another on account of their busy schedules. (At the time, they had been two of probably the most profitable actors in Hollywood.)

And as a result of they hardly ever bought to see one another, Willis instructed Moore that their relationship would by no means work if she continued to pursue a film profession. According to her memoir, Willis needed to be the breadwinner whereas Moore would keep at dwelling with the children. Yet Moore, who’s enthusiastic about her performing profession, refused to present it up for the sake of her husband. So as an alternative, the 2 bought divorced.

In Moore’s memoir, she talks about how shortly the 2 of them bought married. After solely 4 months of figuring out one another, they determined to tie the knot in a Vegas marriage ceremony ceremony. Not lengthy after, they’d their first baby. And as a result of they moved so shortly, Moore admits that the 2 of them had been virtually strangers. 

She says, 

“It’s not unusual, from what I hear, to go from feeling like your spouse’s lover and best friend to feel, over time, like he is just someone with whom you negotiate logistics. That’s basically what happened with Bruce and me. Only we barely had time to be a couple before we became parents,” she writes. “We had a whirlwind, truncated infatuation that morphed into a full-on family all in our very first year. When reality set in, I don’t know if we really knew each other. Soon it was just a life of coordinating details, trying to sync our schedules.”

Demi Moore says that she’s ‘proud’ of her divorce from Bruce Willis

Moore and Willis formally ended their marriage in 2001. And fortunately, they had been each extraordinarily amicable all through their break up. Willis was very adamant about sustaining a powerful household unit, so he moved out in a home straight throughout the road from Moore. And when the actress married Ashton Kutcher a couple of years later, he and Willis bought alongside rather well. 

Moore discusses her divorce to Bruce Willis in her memoir. She says, 

“It’s a funny thing to say, but I’m very proud of our divorce. I think Bruce was fearful at the beginning that I was going to make the split difficult. But I didn’t, and neither did he.”
