House of Cards” star Robin Wright may have been married for 14 years to Sean Penn, but it sounds like she was ready to move on from her marriage. And after dating a new and younger man for a short time, she is engaged once again. And while fans may only know her from the show, there is much more to her. According to a new US Weekly report published on Feb. 12, “House of Cards” star Robin Wright is now speaking about her personal life, as she has gone through another divorce and found love on the other side.

"Divorce in and of itself, and with children, is devastating. Worst than that," she says of her tumultuous romance with Sean Penn, with whom she has two kids, Dylan, 22, and Hopper, 20. "One of the reasons why we got back together and broke up so much was trying to keep the family together," she explains. "If you've got kids, it's a family, and you try again, and you try again. We did that for a long time."

The two have since divorced and the children can manage when they want to see their father. She says, "Sean sees the kids. They see him. They see me. We've all got our own lives." However, since moving on, she has been dating and decided to go on a date with Ben Foster from “Breaking Bad.” He shocked her with a proposal. "But we felt married anyway," she says. "We've been together ever since the first date."

And even though she has experienced a long and not-so-loving romantic marriage, she is thinking that she could be considering a marriage again. "Ben and I have a connection between us that just feels right. I don't know any other word for it." She will be doing press for the newest season of “House of Cards” and the show has just been renewed for a third season, meaning she will be busy.

What do you think of her love life?
