Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith have decided to divorce after four years of marriage. The divorce papers were filed by the wife a month after their wedding anniversary. There were talks about their relationship crisis a year ago, but the star of "Dawson's Creek" had no idea that the actress would take the final step.

Joshua Jackson was years ago in a relationship with Katie Holmes, whom he met on the set of "Dawson's Creek". Later, he spent 10 years with German actress Diane Kruger. But it was only with Jodie Turner-Smith that he experienced true happiness and decided to start a family. Unfortunately, the joy didn't last long as the parents of a 3-year-old daughter are now preparing for a divorce.

The news about the final separation of the acting couple appeared at the beginning of October. Turner-Smith filed divorce papers a few weeks earlier, only a month after their fourth wedding anniversary. Significantly, their marital crisis was already discussed in 2022, but they attended this year's Oscar ceremony together, which suggested that they had overcome their difficulties.

- They are walking very different paths of life. Jodie loves being a mom. She also loves to work. It has turned into an unhealthy marriage, which made her unhappy - confessed a "People" informant, who called their relationship "unhealthy".

A source told US Weekly that Jackson was completely unprepared for the steps taken by his wife, for whom family life was a big change. Previously, she was a "free spirit".

- They had their problems, like many couples, especially two busy actors who are also "juggling" a child. Joshua didn't realize that it was so bad, that Jodie was so unhappy - said a person from their environment.

Jodie Turner-Smith, filing for divorce, cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason. She also demands joint custody. However, the separation might not be quick and pleasant, as the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement, and over the years Jackson has accumulated much more wealth than the 37-year-old known from "Anne Boleyn" or "Sex Education".
