“But these past few years have been the roughest,” the source revealed. “They’ve had to work really hard to save their marriage.”

However, being home took a toll on their relationship. “They struggled with being home together 24/7 and were arguing constantly,” said the source. “When lockdowns eased, they started living separate lives, which actually helped relieve some of the tension. But eventually they realized how much they’d grown apart.”

“Marriage counseling helped a lot,” the insider added. “And they started making an effort to plan date nights and spend time together. Reese and Jim really love each other — and they’re finally back in a really good place.”

"We have some personal news to share... It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce," the former couple said in a joint statement shared to Instagram.

"Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter," the message continued. "These matters are never easy and are extremely personal. We truly appreciate everyone's respect for our family's privacy at this time."
