Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman Working On Marriage


Danny DeVito has revealed that he is trying to save his marriage to Rhea Perlman.

The couple announced their split in October after 30 years of marriage.

However, the actor has since confessed that he is still in contact with Perlman and hopes the pair can one day fix their relationship.

"Rhea and I are really close. Actually, still together, just separate, but together," DeVito told Extra.

Asked if there was a chance of a reconciliation, he added: "We're working on it."

DeVito and Perlman married in January 1982 and the couple have three children - Lucy, Grace and Jacob.

He previously denied claims that his flirtatious manner led to the split, branding the rumors a "fabrication".

Well, I mean, who else would they get it on with? Proportion wise, they're a good fit. Literally.

After 30 years? That makes me sad. A failed marriage scares the hell out of me. Why is divorce so freaking common?!

I think with so many people in my age range there's this belief that love isn't supposed to be work and hard, and that there are never days where you aren't in love with your spouse. Marriage is fucking hard, and sometimes you have to work hard for it. I just think some people don't get that, so when things get hard, they bail.

True love~ isn't suppose to be work and we've been preached at that it's just all roses, unfortunately. However people do change throughout their relationship and they have the right to separate if they want to. They shouldn't be forced to be with someone they dislike (for whatever reason).

my parents split after 26 years together

I was like damn couldn't you just wait it out

but really they'll have had at least 20 years after their divorce to live, so it kind of makes sense. people get OLD these days.

When I was in 4th grade (so... 20ish years ago?), my parents split. But they got back together. Like the commenter before me said, I think they realized that there are days when you aren't in love with your spouse, but ultimately they realized that they were IT for each other. The just celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary.

All couples go through bumpy times, it's how you decide to react in those times that define you/your relationship.

bc now women have the possibility to get out of miserable marriages legally, marriages would've been as common in the past had it been not such a stigma/illegal

I think a lot of people don't understand how hard divorce really is and what you give up until they do it. I know several people who were married a long time, divorced and really ended up regretting it.

They lost a ton of money and the lifestyle they were accustomed to. They lost mutual friends and their whole social scene. They didn't have anything in common with couples anymore, especially since they weren't in their income level now.

Women who have stayed home for 20+ years have a hell of a time finding a job. And the kids suffer to, since everything they knew is gone. It's really a big decision that people need to weigh.

Because people live for bloody ever now. The idea of having to look at the same person age for the next 50 years freaks me out. Bad enough seeing it in myself and I only have to do that when I use a mirror... D:
robotdeer 6th-Dec-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
It is not that simple. There are usually a lot of factors. People are living much much much longer now and the stigma against divorce isn't as strong as it was a few decades ago. Sometimes people get married for all the wrong reasons. I could go on and on, but I do know marriage is not for me.
distant_lines 6th-Dec-2012 02:01 am (UTC)
I hope they get back together.
dacrayzblaze1 6th-Dec-2012 05:55 am (UTC)
Me too!
exlenne 6th-Dec-2012 02:02 am (UTC)
They've spent so much of their lives together. I can't imagine them ever forming a bond that strong with someone else in their remaining years. I hope they can mend their marriage.

exlenne 6th-Dec-2012 02:13 am (UTC)
... because they are in their 60s and have been together 40 years?
fruitchews 6th-Dec-2012 02:02 am (UTC)
After that long together you're bound to be different in ways you may not have been before. It's good they've decided to work on it.
vanishingbee 6th-Dec-2012 02:02 am (UTC)
good luck to them.

Bless you. I still have this film on VHS.

I'm glad they're trying to work at it. 30 years is a long time and they really seem amazing together.
thesilverymoon 6th-Dec-2012 02:04 am (UTC)
I was watching A Very Sunny Christmas today and suddenly remembered they split up. I hope they can work it out, the thought of them divorcing makes me sad :(
evilgmbethy 6th-Dec-2012 02:06 am (UTC)
awww man I had no idea they split up. that's sad. I hope they can work it out.
exlenne 6th-Dec-2012 02:14 am (UTC)

evilgmbethy 6th-Dec-2012 02:18 am (UTC)

venetianglass 6th-Dec-2012 02:08 am (UTC)
I hope they can figure it out.

My parents have been married for 27 years and I wish they would divorce, tbh.
must_go_faster 6th-Dec-2012 02:17 am (UTC)
i was wishing the same tbh, just because 2 ppl have been together for a long time doesn't mean they love each other or are good for each other
saintsmarching 6th-Dec-2012 03:18 am (UTC)
Mmmhmm, preach.

And because I feel like oversharing, I honestly feel like my parents messed up marriage dynamic has screwed me over, relationship wise. Like, my boyfriend always tells me he'll love me forever but seeing how my dad treats my mom (being an asshole who takes digs at her/people because of his own unhappiness, using alcohol as a way to fuel this even more, etc.), I really just don't believe that people can be in love ~forever.

I mean, maybe you can be dedicated to making it work since people change and relationship dynamics change but idk. They've turned me off from the whole idea of marriage, tbh.

yeah, my parents have only been married for 10, but they just now ~separated~ (aka me and my mom moved out) but they're still together? or something, idk. i just want them to divorce.
anna_bea2 6th-Dec-2012 02:25 am (UTC)
my friend's parents couldn't stand each other, but stayed together for her (lol) and got a divorce as soon as she moved out to go to college. My friend was pissed, she was like "you couldn't have split up while I was still living at home so I wouldn't have to listen to you guys fight every minute of every day?"
onyxrose81 6th-Dec-2012 05:42 pm (UTC)
I feel like you're me. They seriously need to divorce but they're both whiny messes so IDK, no one else may have them. Keep the crazy together.
maigrevide 6th-Dec-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
she can do better, he's a gross pig
oh_sailor 6th-Dec-2012 02:28 am (UTC)
What has he done? TBH I could see him using Always Sunny's popularity to hit on college-aged girls like Dennis Haskins's nasty-ass
