He's being very mature and serious about it to, as he told the talk show host:
"I want her to be happy. If me being the best person I can be doesn't make her happy in a partner, in who she needs, whatever she's looking for, that's still to be answered."
He admits he's not sure if their marriage can actually be saved, but said, "I'd love for it to work out."
Aww. So would we, guys!
We always thought you were a perfect couple and were so shocked when things went bad.
David blamed his troubled past of drug and alcohol use that started at just age 4 when he had his first sip of beer. He says he was drinking heavily by age 12!
He said he developed into a person who wanted to please, but wasn't true to himself. In trying to be "the perfect husband," he wasn't happy, and that caused him to drink more.
Now sober since December 30th after completing a 28-day rehab program, David insists he is being "responsible" and "authentic".
He says despite their problems Courteney has "been incredibly supportive. She's my best friend, and I love her with all my heart."
"We truly love each other with all our hearts," he told Oprah. ""I know that I'll be with her my whole life."
It seems like he genuinely loves Courteney and wants it all to work out for the best, not only for himself, but for her as well.
We're pulling for you, David!
