Despite the little family complexity Jim Carry pulled out on the marrital relationship with Melissa Womer years ago in 1995. 

So if you ever wonder what would have happened between the two lovely couple then? 
We are here to answer about every ups and down between these Jim and Melissa which ultimately separated the long time lover and good friends Jim and Melissa.

Jim and Melissa know each other from days when Carry was a struggling standup comedian and Melissa was a waitress in a comedy store where they both worked together. Jim and Melissa remained good friends and walk-by employees for two years and then after two years of friendship the couple gave love a shot and they started dating each other.

Melissa soon became Jim's support system when he was depressed and restless regarding his big step of Taking on the DADA standups. The struggling actor Carry had faced bankruptcy and was living straight out of dust back in those days. She in a tabloid interview recalled her hard times with Jim when they were having Chilly and white bread day in and day out. 

The days started getting better after some times and the couple got married on 28th of March 1987 while Melissa was three months pregnant with their only baby daughter Jane Carrey who is 29 years now. The wedding was "an absolutely perfect day" which was held in mahi-mahi a hotel in Santa Monica, California. 

So if everything was going so peacefully what exactly went wrong?

Things started going south side when Carry started as an actor. Jim is undoubtedly a man with mixed personality. He turns into a really caring husband and lover in a moment and in another moment he was a loner.

The fights started when he started living carefree and acted irresponsibly. He would scatter his belongings everywhere and the little things gassed up the day to day living to give away to numerous fights and painful agony in the family.

But things got really messy when he did the movie Dumb and Dummer, he got emotionally involved with the co-actress, Lauren Holly. Even if the actress denied  that she broke Carry's home it seemed clear that he was involved in a relationship despite having a child and a wife.

The actor had to settle the divorce with $25,000 child support money every month and $3 million as a settlement for her marriage. Jim was bragging the settlement money to be around five hundred thousand but the divorce fight ran more than for two years and Carry had to settle before the relationship went into ten years time because the government of California divides property and earning in equal halves after ten years.

The drama finally ended in 1995 with Melissa and in our later posts we will cover Jim Carry's many relationship and tragedies that followed him in later years.
