It’s not easy ending an 18 year relationship for anyone, including Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt. ‘Mad Men’ creator Matthew Weiner is good friends with both and opened up about how they’re doing these days.
Matthew said at the 2015 Creative Arts Emmys:
It’s a tough time for [both of them]. I know both of them very well. They are both really gifted artists and it’s rough. But it’s also — it was a very long relationship.”
It can’t be easy!
I wonder if not having to go through a divorce (Jon and Jennifer never married) makes it a bit easier? They must have worked out property division themselves. Jon reportedly feels badly about the relationship ending after all this time since he is said to want to start a family, and she does not.
He felt guilty because Jennifer stood by him for so long when he dealt with his alcoholism. It’s sad.”
If Jon ended the relationship because he wants a family and Jennifer doesn’t, then that is sad. This seems like a discussion they should have had quite a while ago. Well, as the saying goes, things work out for the best, don’t they?
