Robin Thicke & Paula Patton: What Actually Happened?

Even the coolest wife on the planet has her breaking point. Paula Patton has put up with lots of things other women probably wouldn't consider very cool. Husband Robin Thicke has been twerked at by Miley, coddled by tons of pretty girls on every dance floor in America and Europe, and has had to deal with a cheating accusation by a woman who claims Robin's hands were all over her body. At some point, a woman is just going to shake her head and wonder if it's all worth it. After eight years of marriage, the birth of their now 4-year-old son, and 23 years of commitment, the childhood sweethearts recently called it quits and announced that they "mutually decided to separate." But some of the details that have surfaced suggest one partner was a little less willing to split than than the other.

Just one day before they announced their split, Robin was spotted at Disneyland with the couple's son wearing his wedding ring. He was photographed laughing and smiling on the rides and, according to fans, was as sweet as sugar when stopped -- showing no signs of distress. Considering he was still wearing his ring, perhaps he was continuing to hold out hope for a reconciliation? 

It has also been reported that the "Blurred Lines" singer canceled his recent performance so he could dash to Canada to try and talk Paula out of ending their marriage. Paula is in Vancouver filming a movie, and according to sources, she sat with Robin for a long time to talk about their decision. But, in the end, they agreed they hadn't been getting along and had been arguing a lot more than usual.

Most are probably assuming Robin had a hot affair, given all of the rumors about his kind-of loose attitude toward cozying up to women who aren't his wife. If that is actually the case, Paula's staying mum about it.

It seems simplistic to blame the deterioration of an entire marriage on Robin's so-called salacious behavior, and I'm betting news of him with other women is a product of their marital problems and not the cause. It must be very difficult to keep a marriage alive when you've been together since you were children, but I'm sad to see they couldn't work things out. Maybe there's still hope?

What do you think is to blame for Robin and Paula's breakup? Do you think they made a good couple?

Please remember that separation does not mean divorce. The two, during this time, are going to their separate corners to evaluate where they are with each other and hopefully how they can reconcile through whatever issues they are dealing with. My hope is that, as the man, and protector of a precious gem, and that goes for any husband for his wife, not just Paula, that he takes the opportunity to pull out those tools he once used to dig, and search to find that precious stone the first time. Even as I say this I convict myself to do the same. It's going to be a tougher battle than the first time but if he loves her and is diligently relentless he will win her heart. To Robin I say don't believe the hype that comes with this industry. Business is business but your bride is your world. Stop where you are in win back your queen. And when you have, do what you have to do to guard her heart as though your very life depended on it. Show your son what it is to be a real man. Dont let this be the legacy he leaves for his son. Get to work.

She should walk! A man never changes...once a loser, always a loser! Sad thing, his son will eventually grow up to see the type of man he really was! A man that's in love with his wife doesn't let every woman grope him or allow Miley Cyrus to do what she did...that's disgraceful and disrespectful to his wife! She deserves better!

Robin, you should have cherished her

If Paula Patton was ugly, would he still get prosecuted? I'm not saying he is not dumb for protecting his wife and family, but she is gorgeous. I think that's why many fans are upset. How can he mess around when he's got her at home!?

Its pretty sad how most people can jump on the bandwagon and say she should leave, as if that is the easiest way to resolve their issues. They have a.child together and will forever be connected and will still have to be or should be amicable with one another for the sake of their son. Our society is so quick to judge,eliminate and persecute as if we carry no skeletons in our own closets. Don't lie to yourselves. I hope they will save their marriage. Purely for the sake of love, family and marriage
