Jim Belushi Has Been Married to Jennifer Sloan for 21 Years & Their Marriage Has Had Its Fair Share of Ups and Downs

Jim Belushi's wife of 21 years, Jennifer Sloan, filed for divorce in early March 2018. And after 13 months, the acclaimed actor filed to have the divorce case dismissed in court.

Belushi, who is the younger brother of comic actor John Belushi and the father of actor Robert Belushi, asked that the court dismiss Sloan's filing, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

"A couple weeks later he asked me to go rollerblading, and I liked him that day. He was real."

The timing of the dismissal comes days before the couple celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary. Citing irreconcilable differences, Sloan initially filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court in March 2018.

Belushi and Sloan, who met in 1993, got married on May 2, 1998. In a 2003 interview with PEOPLE, Sloan said:

"He kissed me on the forehead like I was his sister. A couple weeks later he asked me to go rollerblading, and I liked him that day. He was real."
