It cannot always be love at first sight. Sometimes there will be a story which might start with hatred and end with love. But we have a story which began with hate then turned into love and further it ended with hatred.

True Blood actress, Rutina Wesley whose love story first started with hatred and that later proved to love. But after eight years of marriage, her love story got back to the same pathway of hate. Let’s see Rutina Wesley's lane of before and after marriage life.

Dating Lead to Wrong Marriage; What May Be The Cause?

A couple of years after the divorce from husband Jacob Fishel, actress Rutina Wesley is now busy making her career in the industry. After eight years of marriage, the 38 years old actress filed for divorce on August 2013 citing the go-to reason for irreconcilable differences.

While filing for divorce, she also asked the judge to reject any claims which Fishel might make about spousal support. Undoubtedly, Rutina was making more money from her gigs and maybe didn’t like to give the shares of her wealth.

The actress known for role as Tara Thornton on the HBO series ‘True Blood’ was married to actor Jacob Fishel after graduating on 2005. The pair shared the same pathway for years, but their career were poles apart.

 They knew each other from Julliard School. As per Rutina’s statements, she used to hate her husband at first. While talking to US magazine, she mentioned,

“I hated my husband when we met in school. He was so good at Shakespeare."

That Shakespeare part of her ex-husband ironically worked out for him.

The Nevada born actress divulged,

“When we were courting, my husband wrote me a sonnet and read it to me in Central Park.”

Rutina once explained how they got to the decision of marrying. During an interview in 2010, She revealed,

“We were in the same class. We thought, 'if we could spend four years together at this crazy school, then we can make it the rest of our lives.' He's an amazing actor, cook and husband. I enjoy him immensely."

From this, all that we can say is, as per the pace of time without question many things changes and same is the case with Rutina Wisley. The person whom she hated at first then ended up falling in love with the guy. Then after several years spending together, due to differences things didn’t fall into places for the actress and separated from husband.
