After about a year of marriage to Deanna Durbin, Felix Jackson started a series of unhappy moods and a certain restlessness.

About six months after that, he told Deanna of his unhappiness being a married man and was going to do something about it.

Felix left for New York and never came back to her. Attorney Elmer Bromley officially announced their separaion on 5 January, 1948.

Deanna said the following: "If you are going to have little temperamental moments it is just as well if the man you are married to isn't around either to sympathize or argue with you about them. I found Felix and I taking home these problems, still discussing inconsequential things that might have been forgotten if we had been apart during the day. We never had new and different problems to discuss. Working together all day as we did, we found we had no outside interests, no stimulating contacts to bring to even the ordinary dinner conversation. Instead, trivialities of the day became major problems at the dinner table. Or else we knew every detail of the other's day so thoroughly we had nothing to talk about at all. One of those things leads to arguments - the other to utter and complete boredom. And that is what happened between Felix and me."

The official reasons given for the divorce were desertion and mental cruelty.

After their divorce on 27 October, 1949, Deanna was granted custody of Jessica. Under the property settlement, Felix agreed to pay Deanna back a $12,000 loan and to guarantee $60,000 in bank loans. A pre-nuptial agreement gave them the right to keep his or her own income.

INTERESTING NOTE: In 1940, Jackson's former wife, Licci Balla also divorced him on the grounds of desertion!!
