Jewel And Ty Murray Split After 16 Years Together

In shocking news, country artist Jewel and rodeo star Ty Murray are divorcing after 16 years together.

The two have been married for six years and the announcement came Wednesday, July 2, on the singer's blog. People contributor Michelle Corriston’s "Jewel & Husband Ty Murray Divorcing After 16 Years Together" notes the couple quietly married in 2008 in a tropical wedding ceremony in the Bahamas. The wedding was as surprising as the divorce.

So who will save Jewel's soul?

Probably Jewel herself.

In an attempt to beat out the tabloids, the two are releasing information as openly, and clearly as possible on her blog. And the Alaskan trusts the public and fans alike to recognize the difficulty in these decisions. Because through the loss of marriage and home, the two will "we recreate ourselves in the ashes- for from all death we trust a phoenix rises.”

“Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible.” And the artist wishes the “separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together.” 

Peace and harmony, no drama—just acceptance of the situation and what’s best for the family. Instead of using the “inertia of anger to leverage two souls apart,” the family unit will instead transition calmly in order to not allow “anger to burn the ties that bound us.”

The 40-year-old mother posted that while the relationship has changed, one thing remains the most important: their son. In that vein the separated singer wishes to remain "dear friends and devoted co-parents of our beloved son Kase."

Jointly, both Ty and Jewel said this: "Our dedication to our son is unwavering and we are both committed to being the best partners in raising our son. Due to the spirit in which we have gone about this separation, we trust we can remain dear friends who hold each other in high esteem, which is so important to us as parents- as we wish only what is best for our son.”

Even though the two are no longer together a couple, there’s an honest acknowledgement of life's ability to change people. No one stays the same forever.

She states they "both value growth" and realized their individual growths managed to "tragically and undeniably stifle" the romantic element in the relationship. "We truly believe we can find greater happiness apart than together, and this is why we are taking the enormous and heartbreaking step of divorce."

Ever gracious, she offers support for those struggling with the same hard, personal decision. “May you martial the courage to find whatever answer is best for you.”

Hopefully the family will be able to move into the next stage without drama.
