Many people remember their wedding day as one of the happiest of their lives. Tying the knot with your loved one is undoubtedly a dream for many. But what do people have to say about the problems of marriage and unwanted divorce?

It all get so much more complicated when kids are in the mix, but Kelly Clarkson is leaning into the uncomfortable truth. The singer recently appeared on the March 13 episode of 'The Angie Martinez IRL Podcast' and spoke about how her split from Brandon Blackstock is affecting their two children, River, 8, and Remington, 6. "I literally ask my kids every night when we're snuggling, 'Are you happy? And if you're not, what could make you happier?'" Kelly explained.

"Sometimes they'll say, especially the past two years, and it kills me and I want them to be honest, so I don't ever say, 'Oh god, don't tell me that,' but a lot of times it would be like, 'You know, I'm just really sad. I wish mommy and daddy were in the same house.'" Clarkson said she's glad they're so candid even though it's hard to hear: "I'm raising that kind of individual. I want you to be honest with me."

"I think communicating with them and not treating them—not treating them like an adult, because they're not—but not treating them like a child. They're not small feelings. Those are huge feelings, and those are huge emotions," she added. 

In Hollywood, there are many celebrities who for years seemed to have a the perfect relationship, yet ended up getting divorced. Some celebrities claim that, unlike marriage, this process of separation was the worst moment of their lives, while  others came to believe that it was something inevitable.
