After almost twenty years of togetherness, the couple suddenly decided to part ways. But they chose not to officially divorce but just be legally separate.

That was really thoughtful indeed! Fishman wanted his partner of twenty years to have a healthy life and be able to get her health checked without having to worry or initiate another insurance plan by her own.
He had also once revealed in an interview that his wife Jenny had a rare kidney disease when their children were little. So, the whole family had worked together to create and maintain a healthy environment in the house.
Fishman was in love with Briner at an early age. There’s no history of how long they dated but the two married in 1999 when Fishman was just 18 years old.
Throughout his married life, Fishman and Briner were considered couple goals. They looked so happy together. They couldn’t be happier when they became parents of two children; daughter Isabelle, and son Aaron.
