The couple were together for two years, breaking up in 2002.
Jordan Bratman (2002 – 2010)

Following their marriage, the couple welcomed their first and only child together, Max, on January 12, 2008. Surprisingly, the “Dirrty” singer filed for divorce two years after Max’s birth.
Regarding the reason why she filed for a divorce from Bratman, Christina Aguilera told People, “Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it. I really didn’t want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up. When you’re unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer. That’s the last thing I wanted for my son.” Evidently, the decision was not an easy one to make for the popstar. However, it’s what she thought was best and most healthy. The couple share custody of their son.
