It considers two people to make a marriage strong and a happy one. Several marriages last a lifetime, but there are some relationships where love gets lost after a point of time and the partners float away from each other, ending in divorce.
Sadly, our Bollywood celebrities have also gone into this phase. While many found love again and got lashed for the second time, there are some celebrities whose ex never remarried after divorce.
