Buckingham added he believes many relationships were tested during the lockdown and his wife felt like she needed some time alone and he was completely supportive of her.

He noted that before they even considered a divorce, he was oblivious that many people filed for divorce but ended up not going through with it:

“Kristen and I agree that is the best course to follow, focusing instead on working on our relationship.”
