For better or for worse may be the promise when couples exchange vows but the promise of an everlasting marriage can’t always be kept. Sadly, that turned out to be the case for “Glee actress Jane Lynch, who recently announced that she’s divorcing her wife of three years, Dr. Lara Embry.
Lynch revealed the sad news in a statement to PEOPLE, saying that she and Embry decided to part amicably.
“Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another. We ask for privacy as we deal with this family matter,” Lynch said.
Lynch and Embry met at a 2009 fundraiser and tied the knot on Memorial Day of 2010 in a small ceremony in Massachusetts, one of the few states at the time that allowed same-sex marriage.
“It’s just the greatest thrill in the world to find somebody that you want to be with every day,” Lynch said in 2010.
Our condolences go out to both Lynch and Embry. Sadly, they’re not the only couple whose marriage didn’t last. Check out some other sad divorces below. – nicholas robinson
