In an interview with Huffington Post,  she stated

"One of the things for me when I wasn’t feeling good about being married was I didn’t have any sex drive at all. Not just toward my husband, but toward anybody. I had completely shut down."

But we all know these are one of many reasons which led to their tragic split. Both Jen and her husband Neil remain good friends and are still in contact with one another.

After her divorce seems Jen is not going to date anyone at all, let alone tie the knot. It looks like as if though, her failed marriage made her realized how disheartening it feels to leave.
