A source shared with US Magazine, “That energy really started to cause friction because they wanted to live different lives. Jason wanted to travel and adventure much more. Lisa, she would rather read, write poetry and cook at home.”
The source added that the distance between them had a huge impact on their marriage and it eventually did take a tool on it to a level that they decided to split up. "For some people, it might strengthen their marriage. For Lisa and Jason's marriage, being apart has been a disaster”, the source added. According to reports, even though the decision is huge and is going to impact the couple they are ‘mature’ and ‘will keep the peace for the sake of their children.
