Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore: Arguments got 'intense'

ashton-demi-june-2011-gi.jpg Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore announced their split on Thursday (Nov. 17), but apparently the couple had been having problems for some time.

The fighting could get pretty intense," a source tells People magazine. "Whatever counseling they did was fine for a quick fix but could not get to the heart of the problem."

According to People, the couple did try to work on their relationship, but "got to a point where they had to end it."

In a just-published interview -- obviously done pre-split -- with Women's Health, Kutcher offers his advice on relationship longevity.

"Don't wait for a problem to work on things. The goal is not to get into a relationship; the goal is to be in a relationship."

He continues: "I would just like a woman someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, 'You're a great listener,'" he said. "Haven't heard it yet, and that's a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I'm going to work on it."

According to E! Nerws, Kutcher has already returned to work on "Two and a Half Men" and neither he nor Moore tweeted any messages out to their millions of followers on Friday.
