Few months ago, there were news doing the rounds that television couple Siddhant Karnick and Megha Gupta who got married in August 2016 are going through a rough patch in their personal life. However, the couple remained tight-lipped.
Well now, according to latest reports, the duo started living separately in March last year and filed for divorce. After around 4 years of marriage, Siddhant-Megha got officially divorced few days ago.
Speaking about the problems in their marriage, Siddhant informed a leading daily that, “No marriage is easy. In our case, I would say that we ran out of patience. In any relationship, peace of mind is of paramount importance. It’s like you pinch yourself on your arm and keep that pressed… after some time, you get used to it and live with it. Then suddenly, when you separate and that pinch goes away, you feel, ‘Oh, my God! I was missing this peace of mind’. That’s the best way I can summarise my marriage. Megha and I went for therapy and tried to do everything we could to make it work, but in vain. We even started living separately in March last year. We felt that it would be better if we lived apart for some time and see if distance made the heart grow fonder. However, we realised that we had more peace of mind when we were not together.”

He added, “In fact, we were great together. She is a great travel partner and I have some of the best travel memories with her. But I guess, there was so much more that we were both looking for. That’s when we decided to go our separate ways. I have realised that two good people might not make for a great marriage.”
About their divorce, the actor said, “Divorces can get ugly, but fortunately, it didn’t turn ugly for us. That’s because Megha and I decided to leave when there was still a little love left between us, which helped us sail through.”
Their families were supportive and that made the divorce easier. Siddhant said, “Marriage is not just between two individuals, but two families. Fortunately, our families realised that life is more than just marriage.” The failed marriage has resulted in a lot of introspection. He said, “I am in a relationship with myself now and I am having a good time. I have realised what a great guy I am. It’s important to know yourself and get back in a relationship with yourself first. When you are married, you start thinking for the two of you and ignore yourself most of the time, which is not healthy for a marriage. You should always have your own space and identity, which I guess I had lost somewhere. Right now, I am being on my own and being in a relationship isn’t a priority.”
This is indeed a sad news for the couple’s fans.
On the career front, Siddhant Karnick was last seen in a cameo role in Star Bharat’s ‘Kaal Bhairav Rahasya 2’ featuring Gautam Rode & Additi Gupta in lead roles. He’s also a part of Taapsee Pannu’s recent release ‘Thappad’. Whereas, Megha Gupta’s last TV stint was in ‘Ayushman Bhava’ in which she played a negative role.
