15 Stars Who Went Through a Breakup But Ended Up Being Happier Single

It’s not easy for any couple when a long-term relationship comes to an end. But a recent study has shown that many people feel happier and healthier when they’re single rather than married. And some celebrities who have chosen to separate from their other halves and are now perfectly happy with that decision can serve as proof of this.
