Burlesque star Christina Aguilera recently spoke out about the real reasons she filed for divorce from Jordan Bartman, according to People.  The main reason turns out to be her 2-year-old son, Max.  “When you’re unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer.  That’s the last thing I wanted for my son,” said Aguilera.  The Grammy winner is now back on the dating scene with a new man, Matthew Rutler, a set assistant she met while filming Burlesque.  She describes him as a kind person who she could spend hours talking to without realizing any time has gone by.

How do you know if your relationship unhealthy?

Cupid’s Pulse:

If you think your relationship is unhealthy, it’s  probably true.  Though all couples fight sometimes, if your relationship has become toxic, it’s time to move on:

1. Unhappiness: If you’re unhappy with your partner, chances are the feeling is mutual.  Don’t try to tough it out.

2. Fighting words: An unhealthy couple doesn’t always mean fighting all the time.  Snide passive aggressive comments can be even more hurtful than a full-out fight.

3. Abuse: At the first signs of physical or emotional abuse, get out of the relationship immediately.
