"The Bachelor's" Chris Harrison likely has new empathy for contestants whose relationships don't work out.
The longtime host of the dating reality show announced Thursday that he's separated from his wife Gwen Jones.
Harrison's rep told CNN the high school sweethearts arrived at their decision “after much heartfelt consideration.”
The couple were married for 18 years and have two children together.
“They happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and mutual admiration for each other,” the rep said in a statement. "Though we have made this incredibly difficult decision to separate, our love and mutual respect remain, and we look forward to sharing in the lives of our wonderful children."
In Touch Weekly reports the duo have actually been separated for awhile but are good friends. They were spotted together in January, when Chris reportedly threw a birthday party for Gwen in Las Vegas.
The magazine also reports they plan to share custody of their 9-year-old son Joshua and 7-year-old daughter Taylor.
Harrison has hosted 16 seasons of “The Bachelor."

He looks like a total goof ball to me...good riddens to him girl.
Good for both of them.
Reasons for the split: Younger, blond, and busty woman.
Chris and his wife are a match and should stay together. Just take a break for about 9 months. I wonder
if Emily is on his wish list. It must be challenging for Chris to be faithful to his wife with all these beautiful
young women around. But still think his wife is his soul mate and hope they stay together.
I am going to stick my neck out here and say this since we don't really know the real reason for the split; but I would think Chris would think it easy to be faithful to his wife considering the airhead women on that show. I am a woman saying this.
Maybe the process of reducing your harem to one “young” tight bimbo has its allure. They may not stimulate your intellect, but who cares when you have their mouth full!
Well, I thought he was enamored of one of the more recent bachelorettes, so I'm not surprised. Also, I had noticed that he showed more and more affection toward several of them. He just seemed "more into them" with his questions, etc.
"Shared custody", until she moves half-way across the country.
Maybe he'll be the next Bachelor?
LOL! I would watch it then!
Considering he gets to see first hand how mean and jealous these women can be, I bet he wouldn't want to be on that show as a bachelor.
Look marriage sux and will always suck..Even while the woman is getting married she is thinking about scrwing some other dude..True love is a joke...I have a different woman everynite who is great in bed...has a tight kat and a little waist. Same woman gets dull and boring quick..im just sayin lol
mr ed? stupid name, even more stupid post........as if someone like you could attract a woman w/o having to pay for it.............
Wow mister ed. Your statement shows how much respect you have for women and yourself.
What a complete and total phuquing m0r0n you are.
Yeah, those women are SO lucky. Not all women think about sleeping around ... at least the good ones don't.
Is not mutual admiration and respect the basis or foundation for a marriage? People are too quick to give up on their commitments today. Making a persons *word* his vow worthless!
"Hosted" 16 seasons?
Do you mean get flown all over the world just to show up for about 3 minutes of screen time to state the obvious like "there is only one rose left," because I would LOVE to get paid as much as he does to "host" a show as loosely as he does. Sweet gig if you can get it.
No, no: "Ladies, Clyde, this is the final rose tonight."
You honestly think that's all he does?He does much more behind the scenes that no one sees. Geez.
OMG ! They have matching his-and-her's noses :-o
Magnificent post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector do not realize this. You should proceed your writing. I am confident, you have a huge readers' base already!|What's Taking place i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I have discovered It absolutely helpful and it has helped me out loads. I hope to contribute & assist other customers like its helped me. Great job.
"our love and mutual respect remain"
OH FOR FREAK SAKE!!!!! YOU ARE SEPARATED!!!!
Take a moment, and say your goodbyes...
great, he can be the next bachelor.
So the Bachelor host is a bachelor now and this is news? Must be a slow news day.
He was flirting more with the females on the show and acting differently. I remember actually wondering if he was recently divorced during one of the Tell All Episodes.
What ever happened to fighting for our marriages? You would fight to save your kids, well fight to save their home life. Don't be selfish! Fight for them and each other. Try to remember why you fell in love. You are both gorgeous and look great together. Just try to work it out with prayer and friendship. Just give it another chance with God's help you CAN save this marriage! I will be praying for you. lls
Now he can be the Bachelor.
And she can be the Bachelorette.
OMG, ur gay! Gay! Like, totally! Everyone is gay!
OMG who cares? Obviously not me, since I took the time to click on the article, read it, and comment on it!
They get rich and famous and they not need each other again.Not worry he is probabbly the next Bachelor and she will married a millionaire! lol lol anyway WHO CARES! !!!!!!
A bunch of women were having lunch...discussing the divorce one of them was going through.
"Here Susan..here's my lawyer's card...he did all 4 of my divorces..& if I ever get married again..he'll do that one, too."
"Hey Steve – my divorce is final...I feel like I've been paroled! All she gave was good headache."
Don't get married...stay sane..stay single...let her mow the grass..pay the bills..she should be grateful you wants to be with her.
Better get out his wallet. This is America, the most feminist country in the world.
You are fun-neeeee. Not quite, not as long as there are misogynist lttle men like you around. You're in a marriage, you have kids, one of you was the $ winner, one of you was everything else....you bet they share, the shared the ups and downs, there was support and care...etc etc etc etc. YOU couldn't afford to pay someone to do all that a wife/woman does in a relationship. What happened? Your wife the major breadwinner and left you in the dust in your imitation leather chair and remote control?
The saddest part of this story is that the Bachelor has been on for 16 seasons. Good luck to the kids.
Well said! What a waste of time.
For a TV show that's based on narcissism, it's poetic justice.
To Jed and Byteme: You do realize you are reading the "entertainment section" of the news don't you. And you cared enough to post!
Hey Lucygal....how many couples do you know that separated and then never divorced! This is the first step toward divorce. I hope they can remain civil friends for the children...and yes you can be friendly with your ex...I am!
Hey GAPeach ... I did and several other couples I know also separated and never got a divorce. It happens ... although admittedly you don't see that very often with celebrity couples. Then again, the reason I didn't divorce is because 1) my kids and 2) she wouldn't do anything to get on her feet (her laziness being one of the reasons I separated) and I discovered a divorce would have put me straight into bankruptcy. So now I get to live in forced celibacy ... yay me! Ok, take that back ... they will get divorced ... he probably doesn't have to worry about bankruptcy.
OMG Who cares!?!?!
I agree, who cares about this? It demonstrates how much nonsense is reported in the "news".
That's too bad. Not sure why it's so hard for folks to understand how two people can care about each other but choose to divorce – you can have love for someone but not be IN love with them. At the same time, these days too many folks have an idealized sense of what love is supposed to be about.
because everyone cheats and nobody respects marriage like before.
My husband & I only knew each other three months when we got married and are celebrating 30 years of wedded bliss in June. It has not always been fun or easy but it's always been worth the work. Nothing worth having comes easy. For people to write that he "must be gay" or he' "sleeping with girls on the show" or any of the other immature, ignorant comments people are making tells me that they must not have two brain cells to rub together. We're not in their home, their lives, their brains. It's none of our business why they didn't last or what kind of releationship they may or may not have or will continue to have. I just feel badly that a marraige with young children could not sustain itself. And it always serves as a reminder to me how very blessed my husband & I are and to be sure to tell ourselves that everyday.
Congratulations Gina Glynn and may God bless you with many more wonderful years together.
Now those remarks are news worthy....good for you!!!!
I agree with you. I have been married for 20 yrs now. We have two kids. I cannot leave them. I can be unhappy with the marriage and yet continue the game until the kids grow up and move on then. They are the most important.
What a shame ~ for their children . Both of their children are under 10 and I guess that's better than them being teens and this happening ~ it's generally harder for teenagers. Anyhow, though the article says this is 'mutual', but I have a feeling it's probably one more than the other who has decided not to stay in the marriage. And I have a fairly good idea which one that would be, but I could be wrong. At any rate, I feel sad for the two children. Children always bear most of the fallout.
It was bound to happen, high school sweethearts? You can't possibly tell me that either one of them was not curious about other people. It seems like that might have been a big part of it since they say they still love each other – it's physical.
Oh well, I guess it was "smthng2say"!!!!
Its their business.
It is OUR business ,since we make them rich and famous! when you go to in show business your life and everything about you, became people's business .... the show is making ratings because US!and you are reading the news and you are in this blog what a hypocrit you are! you are into their business like the rest of US!
not is not a duplicate and I didn't say that before I am responding to someone comment..why is this happenning?
Which on of theose wh$&e he did the nasty with?
Make like a "Tree" and leaf!!!!
just shows the pressure this contrived gimmick show can create. Real love and togetherness can't happen on TV.
Happy adults, kids loose. When will we start sacrificing our own interests for those of children.
You don't think the kids will notice mom and dad hating each other if they stayed? That is not healthy either
How do you know their kids are "loose"????
Guess who will be the next bachelor? and he can host it too so they save money.
Hey Gwen....your hot Call me!!! I wish!!
I heard he is coming out of the closet soon.
By the way, I am coming out of the closet soon as well. I luv to pack fudge and I been lookin for some gayboyz to party with!!
I know, she can be the next Bachelorette, and after the first show airs, they can helicopter him in as a spoiler for the rest of the group. Next.
Do the words MID-LIFE CRISIS ring a bell?
He probably messed around with one of the women on the show.
Or his wife is a ho......
Wouldn't be amazing if he is the next bachelor?
they will probably get back with one another.
Reblogged this on გ w ნ პ რ ე ს ი.
they look just alike
High school sweethearts and married 18 years. Sounds like someone is gay to me. They never had a chance to explore (at least she probably didn't) and date others before committing. I never understand when people say they "love" each other and are committed to raising their children.... No one ever stays married anymore...it's just too hard to try and make it work and easier to wave goodbye.
I think YOU are the gay one – and not too bright either....
50 % of all marriages are successful. I've been happily married for 34 years and counting. Good marriages just don't get much media or social attention.
If they "happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and mutual admiration for each other,” why are they getting divorced?
Doesn't make sense.
Okay fan, show me where you see that Chris and his wife are divorcing? Throughout this entire article, it states they are separating. I don't see any mention of divorce.
It totally makes sense. Why be together in a relationship if you aren't totally happy and can be happier just as friends? I say good for them for putting their differences aside and are cival to one another for their sake and the kid's sake. Not too many people can do that because they let anger and spite get in the way.
