Britney Spears and Jason Trawick: 2013’s latest bittersweet ending

image

Looks like 2013 will bring a lot of challenge to the couples we have today, especially those who are known in the show business industry. There are a lot of stories of break-ups and bitter endings between couples, whether or not they are together for a long time. Most of the causes are misunderstandings, lack of time for each other and personalities that are just not meant to be.

The first break up alert this 2013 in show business involved the late filing of divorce between Courtney Cox and David Arquette who both finally put an end in their relationship, followed by the news of Taylor Swift and Harry styles that just happened during the New Year’s Eve and now by Britney Spears and Jason Trawick.

Britney Spears was a famous artist in the music industry during her time. She had two children: Preston and Jayden with her first husband Kevin Federline. Unfortunately, things didn’t work between the two of them that eventually led to their divorce. She came back to her singing career and then mellowed a bit when she got into her new relationship with Jason Trawick at around 2010, the couple was said to be dating since 2009. The two had a good relationship for almost 3 years and even announced their engagement almost a year ago. However, it looks like things between the couple did not turn out as a happy ending as well. Though most break ups, have bitter endings, with the fact that engagement and plan for marriage was even put to thought, these couple had it a different way.  Similar to how Courteney Cox and Davis Arquette, the ex-couple says they still do admire each other and that they have nothing against each one of them. Some say they might have just grown apart as years passed by. But there’s really nothing to get mad at each other. Trawick says he loves Britney’s children so much and would always do while Britney ensures good friendship with Jason and spills that she wants to get back to doing what she loves, singing.

These two chose to go separate ways and live their lives apart, but even so they show couples a good example of breaking up at least it is possible to maintain a good relationship even though the intimacy is gone. May the best of luck in love and life be with them this 2013.
