Ashton & Demi: Portrait of a Marriage

In spite of growing problems, the couple – who announced their split on Nov. 17 – presented a united front


In the end, the private face of their marriage didn't match the public face. Following September 2011 reports of Kutcher's alleged infidelity, the couple went camping with their Kabbalah instructor in what was seen as a retreat to mend the relationship. It didn't work: A month later, Moore announced they were splitting, saying, "As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life." In reply, Kutcher Tweeted, "I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail."
