Los Angeles, Aug 9 Actor Michael Douglas says his first marriage with Diandra should have ended sooner than it actually did.
Douglas was married to Diandra for almost 18 years before they went separate ways in 1995, and got finally divorced in 2000.
Currently, the 68-year-old star is married to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. He admits that rather than going to a marriage counsellor to make the wedding with Diandra work, he should have taken the right decision long time back, reports mirror.co.uk.
“I know I’m going to get into trouble here. I have nothing against her (Diandra) and in fact I’m very fond of my first wife. But we should have ended that marriage eight or 10 years earlier,” Doughlas said.
“It took me too long to realise that if you go to a marriage counsellor to resolve problems, it’s in his interest to keep the marriage going,” he added.
Douglas feels Diandra would agree with him.
“Because if I end the marriage, he’s got no business. I think Diandra would probably say the same thing. That’s the only clear regret that I have,” he said.
