We have our own history to work out.” His son had turned six at the time of this interview and he was very concerned about his wife and her privacy. “There is a terrible sadness but there are also all the reasons why we came together in the first place. You want to hold on to them. You don’t want the experience to sour you or make you look less fondly on what you have together.” said Glen on the aftermath of his divorce.
