Tia Mowry Shares The Moment She Knew Her Marriage Was Over

Tia Mowry shares the moment she knew her marriage was over

When Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict announced their split in October, they shook the internet. Mowry (44) has been glowing since the announcement and recently spoke about her marriage on the TODAY show with Hoda & Jenna. She shared the moment she knew her marriage was over.

“I knew when I started really focusing on my happiness,” said the Sister Sister star said. “I feel like women; we tend to focus on everyone else’s happiness, on ensuring that everyone else is okay – meaning our children, our friends, our family.”

“But at the end of the day it’s about self-love. When you really start working on yourself, loving yourself, knowing your value and knowing your value, then suddenly there is this awakening. And it’s not easy. It’s a tough journey, but in the end I feel it’s so, so worth it.”

Mowry and Hardrict’s split caused such an uproar as they had been together for 14 years. This type of longevity is not something we see often these days, especially among celebrity couples. Despite the split, Mowry says she doesn’t see her marriage as a failure.

“And I feel like … when (people) look at marriage; success equals longevity. But no, in the end, are they happy? Are they thriving? Are they growing? I feel that is what is most important. It’s not about staying in something because however long you stay in that situation equals success. It’s about really, again, are you happy? Because life is really short.”

Mowry also credits the death with helping her realize her marriage was coming to an end. In 2019, her grandmother and twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley’s cousin, Alaina Housley, passed away. These unfortunate events helped her put her life into perspective.

“I feel like when I started to focus on myself again, like I said, but there was this sadness. And I knew life was short. I lost my grandmother. We lost Alaina Housley. And both of them at the same time,” she said.

“There was just an ‘aha’ moment in me where I said, ‘You know what? We need to tune in, see what’s really going on with your happiness. Life is short. Let’s go. Let’s get to work on you and really focus on what really, really matters here, which at the end of the day is your peace, your joy and your happiness.”

Mowry seems to be tapping into this newfound happiness, so much so that her sister Tamera notices as well. The twins told Entertainment Tonight from her sister, “This is the happiest she’s been in a long time.”

Mowry and the All American actor met in 1999 and dated for six years before tying the knot in 2006. It was also a unique relationship for Mowry, as Hardrict was the first and last boyfriend she had. They share two children together – son Cree (11) and daughter Cairo (4).
