Courteney and David Reportedly Had Open Marriage Toward The End

courteney cox and david arquette split up

It's nice to know they weren't technically cheating on each other before their split was made public.

Sources close to Courteney Cox and David Arquette have said that the former couple had an open marriage during the months preceding their separation.

While David Arquette was hitting up Hollywood spots without wifey, Courteney was getting cozy with Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt.

Here's what a source on the Cougar Town set had to say about it:

“Courteney and Brian were all over each at a wrap party in April and the talk on the set was that it was fine because she and David had an open marriage.”

Cox had been seen out with Van Holt several times during a period of a few weeks, and she even brought him to Malibu's Coral Beach Cantina…without David.

Here's what an eyewitness at the Cantina had to say about them:

“They were drinking beer and having chips and salsa in the back of the outdoor patio. They looked like they were holding hands at the side of their table.”

We certainly wish you both the best, but admittedly we're sad. We thought you were a good couple!

    separated? boo. i love funny stoner couples, but the guy from couger town is sexy..

    Aww, I actually thought these two were a cute couple.

    I'm sad about this. I thought they were the perfect couple. I guess in Hollywood standards them making 11 years is amazing. I don't like this "open" marriage policy. If you need to separate to find yourselves fine, but to start dating other people while you are still legally married isn't what marriage is about. Plus, they have a little girl. That will just confuse her. I have been married for 11 years as well, but with my husband for 20. I could never imagine having an "open" marriage policy if we started to have problems.

    He kept his mouth shut for months because Courteney Cox wouldn't let him go public. The chick he tapped is the one who opened her fat yob and spoke to the media, not him. He still loves and wants his wife!! She's the one who asked him for the break! He wants what every husband wants - to be able to be alone with his wife sometimes. David Arquette had the cajones to say what every husband dares not speak!

    I thought they made a great couple - opposites attracting. But if they have indeed split - he can do SO much better. He seems like such a fun guy.

    They seem like nice people. Always thought they were a total mis-match.

    Okay people let's leave them alone to deal with this. I wish them the best with whatever happens.

    They did seem like a great couple. Hollywood isn't an easy place to be married. I know something about open marriages and I will say this - it isn't a panacea for a marriage already in trouble. It has to be a lifestyle choice that truly works for both people and the boundaries have to be clearly decided and agreed upon. Also the open marriage can be ended back to the regular marriage if it isn't working. It seems like we are hearing more about the open marriage trend in Hollywood - Ashton & Demi, now these two.

    Well, obviously the "open marriage" thing didn't work since they are not separated. Basically it wasn't an open marriage. They were just prepping to divorce and agreed to get a head start on going their separate ways.

    Re: WonderWoman66

    How about marriage is whatever you make it?

    Uh, Arent open marriages supposed to be about sex and nothing else? It sounds like Courtney was going on dates with her guy. How is it supposed to be a 'marriage' when you're spending more time with the fling than your spouse? By doing that you're putting yourself in a position to get attached and develop feelings for the 'other' person. Those kinds of marriages are stupid, and they almost never work. The people involved get greedy and start stepping over boundaries and it always ends up blowing up in their face.

    He is leaving her because she is starting to look old. That is the bottom line in my opinion. He does not feel young with her anymore. He will marry a young girl and have more kids. Just watch…



  14. 14

    why get married at all? apparently divorce is in, so no more fake marriages hollywood

    Now she and Jen can be together. They'd be cute!
