Pamela Anderson's marriage with Jon Peters ended before it could fully begin, and a cleansing trip to India might be responsible, according to new reports.
When Pamela Anderson and the movie producer, Jon Peters, decided to get married, they kept it under wraps. Only a handful of their family members knew about it, so it seemed it had the making of a lasting marriage.
Things didn't turn out that way, as the two chose to end things after 12 days. The decision led to the question: why did the two get married in the first place? and People has the answer.

A source close to Anderson told the news outlet that the actress had just returned from a trip to India when she chose to try for husband number five. She had spent,
"Several weeks on an Ayurvedic cleanse to start the new decade fresh."
The source added that it's understandable that the cleansing experience made the "Baywatch" star believe starting new meant getting hitched. She thought accepting a proposal from Peters was the right thing to do.

NO MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news that the two were calling things quit. Anderson told the news outlet that despite the warm reception the story of her marriage with the producer got, it was time for a reevaluation.
While he waited, the former couple both got married four times, and have five children between them.
The latter includes deciding what Anderson and Peters want from life, and it's not each other. Also, the two had yet to formalize their marriage certificate.

TRUST IN THE SYSTEM
The actress noted that she and her ex decided to put the latter off and will put their trust in the system. She also thanked her fans for,
"… Respecting our privacy… [and] we would be very grateful for your support."
The two secretly got married on January 20th in a private ceremony. They were reportedly very much in love with each other, and excited to start their future together.

STILL WORTH THE WAIT?
Anderson's son, Brandon Thomas Lee, was elated for his mother and the "A Star is Born" producer. So much so that he said in an interview at the time that he is incredibly happy for the new family he is getting.
The actress and Peters first crossed paths over 30 years ago, and he carried a torch for her ever since. He said after their wedding, that he has only wanted Anderson, and she was worth the wait.

While he waited, the former couple both got married four times, and have five children between them. They share their kids with Christine Forsyth-Peters, and Brandon Lee, respectively.
The 52-year-old Anderson was supposed to be the one whom the 74-year-old Peters would spend the rest of his life with. But with that dream gone, all they have are memories and a future without each other.
