Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Reynolds issue divorce statement

LOS ANGELES, USA - Today s surprising announcement by Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds comes hours after the Golden Globe nominations.

As if there wasn t enough going on in the news today, the high profile couple issued a joint statement earlier today after 2 years of marriage:

"After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."

It is rumored that the reason for the breakup was not an issue of personality, fights or something controversial, but merely that their schedules forced them to be apart for too much of the year.

The pressures of fame and a busy work schedule can often weigh in on a relationship publicized widely in the media. The announcement today is an unfortunate reality that a lot of Hollywood couples face, as they must put either their careers or relationships first.

Brad Pitt and Angelina face daily challenges in their relationship due to celebrity gossip magazines constantly re-circulating rumors, opinions and endless myth about how they feel about each other. Whilst this is not new, this is just one area that puts enormous strain on public figures, as they are sometimes forced to deny this.

Although Scarlett and Ryan s relationship was kept very low profile, the news today will be talked about for sometime
