Where Did It All Go Wrong?

I was reading an article in the Daily Mail online news about a Hollywood couple whose 7-year engagement produced a sad finale. After 2 children and the great life show business allegedly provides, the couple announced their split. The question, Where did it all go wrong? headlined the article. Huh? Do they really not know?
