Laurie Farinacci is the erstwhile wife of famous producer, songwriter, musician, and frontman John Rzeznik of the rock band group Goo Goo Dolls. She gained popularity following her marriage to the music star in the early 1990s. Unfortunately, the union that many thought would pass the time test failed after a decade.
They Got Married In The Early 1990s
Marriage doesn’t just happen overnight. Desires come first, then intentions follow, and lastly decisions. Farinacci and her ex-husband didn’t through all these in their relationship before they decided to walk down the aisle in 1993.
Before that, they first bumped into each other in 1990. Rzeznik must have seen in her a woman who could be his wife, which is why he approached her. They used two years getting to more about each other and going on dates. During this period, the pair discovered that they were meant to go beyond just dating, they wanted something more profound.
So, there was an engagement a year before their wedding. Just like any other typical engagements, it came with a ring from Rzeznik who must have popped the usual question, ‘will you marry me?’ And Farinacci accepted the proposal.
They Divorced After A Decade
Farinacci and Rzeznik ended their marriage in 2003, ten years after taking the vow of a ‘together forever. Whenever celebrity marriages end in divorce, speculations take the order of the day. People would want to know why and what led to it.
For the records, no one knows exactly why the couple decided to split. Or what transpired between them that the only option they have left was divorce.
Divorce seems to be the last option couples resort to when their marriages hit a low. Some have argued that it is better to part ways when things are not working, rather than bottle it till it bursts. While others would say that problems are meant to be solved. And so is a marriage heading for divorce.
