Patrick Dempsey, Jil­lian Fink called off their di­vorce

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The ‘Brid­get Jones’s Baby’ star’s di­vorce from his wife of 17 years was of­fi­cially dis­missed by the Los An­ge­les County Court last week at Jil­lian’s re­quest. The pair an­nounced they were to split in Jan­uary 2015 but have since worked hard on their mar­riage and the 50-yearold ac­tor re­cently quipped it was com­mu­ni­ca­tion and “lots of s**” that got them back on track. He said: “You’ve got to keep at it. You’ve got to com­mu­ni­cate, and stay open and not get lazy. And not give up. And lots of s**! Our mar­riage was not some­thing I was pre­pared to let go of. I didn’t feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work. That’s where it started. “You can only do one thing at a time and do it well. I [learned] to pri­ori­tise. Our union has to be the pri­or­ity. I wasn’t pre­pared to give up on her and she wasn’t ei­ther. We both wanted to fight for it. Ev­ery­body has their own path. Jill and I de­cided it was time to work on our is­sues and im­prove. We wanted to be role mod­els for our kids like, okay, if you have dif­fer­ences, you can work it out.” And Patrick - who shares twins Darby and Sul­li­van, nine, and Tal­lula, 14, with Jil­lian - feels it was his heart that told him to fight for the mar­riage. He shared: “The sup­port my wife has given me has al­lowed us to blos­som as a cou­ple and a fam­ily. With­out her, my ca­reer would not be where it is to­day. My heart told me [not to give up].”
