Busy Philipps And Marc Silverstein Split After Being Together For 15 Years

After 15 years of marriage, Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein divorced. Philipps confirmed the news on her podcast, Busy Philipps Is Doing Her Best, on Friday. She explained to her co-hosts,

“It’s been a long time since Marc and I have been apart, and our kids, family, and friends are all aware. And we actually spoke about how I should handle it publicly. Because it was February of last year that we initially split up.”

She went on to say,

“But the reality is, you know, there’s a traditional understanding of what a public figure is supposed to do when their relationship ends, and it’s been very well established, right?” You make a statement, you’re dedicated to staying friends, ‘please respect our privacy and the privacy of our family during this time,’ right? But, you know, who set the rule that that’s how you do it? “I’m not kidding.”

Busy Philipps said that the previous few years have shown her that she can do whatever is best for herself and her family. She thinks that everyone has a public life and that no one should follow a conventional concept just because it has been done before.

She added that when she and Marc discussed it and split, they couldn’t bear the thought of putting one of those things out there and making them ill. She finished by saying,

“This is a journey.” Jour-ney. It’s been an adventure. The only option for Marc and me to safeguard the privacy of our children, whom we adore, was to avoid engaging the public.”

Marc Silverstein is Busy Philipps’ spouse.

Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein’s relationship

Marc Silverstein married Busy Philipps in June 2007, and the couple had two daughters, Birdie Leigh in 2008 and Cricket Pearl in 2013. Despite being married for 15 years, their relationship had many ups and downs, and Philipps even discussed divorce from Silverstein owing to marital troubles and conflicts. In her 2018 book, the Made in Cleveland actor confessed that her marriage to Silverstein had reached a hard point, prompting her to seek emotional support from another guy. When she sought a divorce, Silverstein was taken aback and begged for another opportunity. Busy’s closest friend Michelle Williams counseled her to keep her family together, so she and Silverstein started going to counseling.

Busy Philipps said in her biography that Silverstein sought out a therapist and started to work through his issues. Marc was not the most supportive dad following the birth of Birdie, according to the Freaks and Geeks star. She said,

“Marriage is always difficult, but particularly when you have children… There may be times when you are not interested, but there must always be one person prepared to fight. I told Marc multiple times that I couldn’t take it anymore. Something needs to change, and it has to be you.”

She added that she and Marc had several serious conversations and therapy sessions. In a 2019 interview, the couple discussed how their marriage changed over time and why divorce was contemplated when Philips was unhappy with the sharing of parenting responsibilities.

Silverstein agreed to a few things and chose to remain at home with the children. He remarked that he avoided home obligations since he did not believe he was ideal in this area. Philipps stated:

“[In a relationship], you must choose what works best for you. You must also consider your children. I want everything for my daughters, but the only way they’ll think it’s feasible is if they see me having it.”
