What went wrong between Madonna and Guy Ritchie? The pair was married for eight solid years before they separated in 2008. It took Ritchie some years before he could open up about his separation with Madonna. Ritchie described his relationship with the singer as a soap opera but he didn’t regret marrying her.
Madonna said that spark went out and it wasn’t as romantic as it should be. That was not what Madonna wanted from the relationship. The divorce settlement cost at least $76 million. Ritchie had to go with the family’s 1,200 acre estate in Wiltshire worth £12 million and the Punchbowl Pub in Mayfair.
Madonna and Ritchie were married in Scotland in December 2000 and the news was everywhere. It was revealed that the singer’s desire to have another child was the bone of contention and she wanted to spend more time in the United States.
However, when she got married to Ritchie, she had to stay in England and struggled to adapt to living the British life. Madonna has long moved on with her life. The couple couldn’t adapt to their differences and end up saying goodbye to each.
