The news of Rachel Bilson’s split with ten-year love Hayden Christensen came a few days ago. They have had their ups and downs throughout the years, but there have also been some very good times. Whenever celebrity couples break up, there is always speculation about the reasons for the break-up. Rumors start to fly and soon it’s difficult to tell which story being presented is true. For those of you who are wondering, we have information that suggests the real reason that the couple has gone their separate ways.
The actual split happened two weeks ago
Both Rachel and Hayden are private people. They are equally hesitant to share what goes on in their personal lives. They value their privacy and this is one of the reasons why their separation was not made public. We’ve seen Rachel out shopping for children’s clothing alone since Hayden has left. He is now living in Toronto, while Rachel resides in Los Angeles. This is quite a distance and it appears that the couple is finished and each pursuing their own lives without one another.
The split was mutual
The break-up does not signal that there is a great deal of animosity between the couple. A friend of Bilson’s shared that the two had agreed that it was time to end the relationship. This is going to be much easier on each of them and it will make it a better situation for raising their daughter as separate but equal loving parents. Bilson had shared in a public post made to Christensen prior that he is a good dad.
Ongoing issues finally came to a head
The couple had been having a rough patch for the past few years. Things intensified a couple of months ago and from what we’re told by a reliable source, Rachel and Hayden are just too different to be compatible. It isn’t that either of them did anything wrong, they have just not grown together as a couple. The culmination of the gradual buildup of problems and issues is what led to the decision to split.
Differences in interests and lifestyles
Hayden prefers to live a private and quiet life. He’s happier staying at home and hanging out there. He’s somewhat reclusive at times. Rachel accepted this for years, but she has a different personality type. She likes to have friends around her and do things with them now and then. Hayden has a tendency towards depression and can become quite neurotic. This extreme difference wore Rachel down over time and she couldn’t continue to live this kind of life.
Might there be a reconciliation?
For now, it doesn’t appear that the couple has any plans to reconcile. The differences between them are so great that it would take a lot of work, to possible end up back at square one again. They previously became engaged, then broke up, only to reconcile again three months later. Only time will tell, but when a situation isn’t working for either party, sometimes it is best to just agree that it doesn’t work and move on with life.
