According to the source, they started living separately in 1999 but they didn't give any hint of their separation until their legal called off their marriage. Rumors about their disputes spread like a wildfire when Alison moved out of the house into a 4000 sq. foot apartment in Manhattan.
On 2011 in an interview with Rolling Stones Magazine, he talked about his divorce with Alison,
"My marriage ending blew my mind. I was upset that I failed, let down my family, my kids, my ex-wife; it all was very painful.”
"I felt like such a failure, It's so complicated, and it's hard for me to even figure out at this point what went wrong and how things that were so good could go so bad. It's tough. I think I'll spend the rest of my life trying to analyze that.”
His spokesman Dan Kloss said,
"This is an amicable separation. Following mediation, both Alison and Howard, who care for each other very much, have come to an agreement and settled all their concerns."
"This is an amicable separation."
His elder daughter reflected how she felt about her parent's divorce,
"I believed that my parents were very much in love. I felt like the divorce came out of nowhere. I thought that sacred bond was so strong. He used to be one way, and then he marries a model."
It was said that Howard used sex to cope with his divorce. Here is the clip where he is describing his relationship with his former wife.
Moreover, getting back to the former couple's life before marriage, the pair first met during their college days. Howard was studying Communications at Boston University while Alison was pursuing her degree in social work at the time when the couple first met.
After a year of dating, the duo took their relationship to next level as they officially married on June 4, 1978.
Their wedding took place at Brookline, Massachusetts in a private ceremony.
