RIP: Drew Barrymore & Will Kopelman

I'm a couple days late to the news, but on Friday (AKA celebrities announce their break-up day) it was confirmed that Drew Barrymore and her husband of four years, Will Kopelman are getting divorced. I've always wondered about couples who split up after such a short marriage, especially when there's kids involved. They have a three year old and a one year old. What the fuck happened? Was it really that bad? Did they even try counseling? Did someone cheat? Is someone gay? Is someone addicted to crystal meth and kiddie porn? Or was it just scheduling conflicts? Here's their statement:
"Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family. Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on. Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority."

I don't get it. I mean, it is Drew Barrymore we're talking about here. She's been married three times, and she's had an endless string of boyfriends. Throw a dart in Los Angeles, and chances are, it'll land on a guy she's dated. I could also see how her lisp and relentless positivity could get kind of annoying. But she had kids with this dude. And she always talked about how his parents were like the mom and dad she always wanted. She's on the cover of Glamour this month and Jill Kargman (of Odd Mom Out fame, Will's sis) conducts the interview. They basically spend the whole time gushing about how much they love being family.

So, is it possible that things fell apart, because Drew is the far more accomplished spouse (see Gwen and Gavin)? She's a successful actress/producer who recently published a memoir, and launched her own cosmetics company. Kopelman doesn't even have his own Wikipedia page, and the internet lists "actor" as his occupation. Page Six calls him an "art consultant" which is not a real job.

This all bodes the question-- who will Drew date next? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say she goes lesbian... or dates Jason Segal.
