So when Michael Douglas was spotted wearing his wedding ring a couple of days ago and claimed that his marriage was ‘fine’, I assumed that he was in denial. I mean, he and Catherine Zeta-Jones had announced their temporary separation, so if he was not the one who instigated the separation, I assumed it had to be Catherine.
However, Catherine was also spotted wearing her wedding ring earlier today. So what does that mean? Either Catherine and Michael are playing the media, or they’re very confused about the state of their own relationship.
To be fair, their statement did say that it would be a ‘temporary separation’, and that the only real consequence would maybe be them not living together or sleeping in the same room. Keeping that in mind, Michael might have been telling the truth when he said that he’s ‘still married‘.
Or maybe Catherine just forgot to take off her ring, or maybe she’s still wearing it for sentimental reasons. Either way, the fact that they’re both wearing their rings suggests that this separation might not be permanent. In the end, there’s always a possibility that they could get back together. Consider both of their health issues, Michael’s with cancer and Catherine’s with bipolar, it wouldn’t be easy maintaining a relationship. Maybe they both decided they needed to take a break and have some time away from each other, but that doesn’t mean they’re giving up on marriage. I realize this makes all the divorce conspiracy theories moot, but until they actually get back together, there’s no guarantee which way their marriage will go.
What do you guys think? Are Catherine and Michael trying to make a statement by continuing to wear their rings, or did they simply forget? And will they go through with a divorce, or will they get back together? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
