Even though it’s been more than twenty years since Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise divorced, and their lives have undoubtedly changed a great deal since then, people are still quite curious about the true reasons why the pair decided to split up in the first place.
They were married on December 24th, 1990, and went on to adopt two children: Isabella, who was born in 1992, and Connor, who was born in 1995.
The public’s fascination in Kidman and Cruise’s romantic involvement was readily enough fodder for the media to cover extensively. After spending over a decade together as a couple, the actors were forced to break the news to one other that they were going their own ways.
The news came as a complete surprise to everyone, including Kidman, who was left feeling completely devastated by it.
Since June 2006, Kidman and country singer Keith Urban have been married and seem to be quite happy together.
Unfortunately, Tom Cruise’s dating career has had a few more obstacles along the way, as seen by the fact that his marriage to Katie Holmes, which lasted from 2006 to 2012 and resulted in yet another high-profile divorce.
It was said that “the problems in different occupations which continuously kept them apart” was the cause of their marriage breaking up.
Kidman has been more candid over the years about some of the problems that existed inside their relationship, as well as about how painful it was to go through such a public divorce and experience such a difficult loss:
“It took a very long time for me to recover from it. My whole body was taken aback by it.”
Despite the fact that Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise’s relationship did not endure and that both of them have seen their fair share of highs and lows in their personal lives, it seems that both of them are doing well in their jobs and both have a promising future ahead of them.
