The A-list personalities got hitched in 1956, though they called it quits in 1977 due to numerous reasons. The two share 3 sons, Shaun, Patrick, and Ryan. 

What's the most major reason for the break-up?

 The American actress candidly confessed the difficulties she had faced in the marriage with the late handsome singer. Even though Jones described Cassidy as her first lover, their troubled relationship couldn't last for long. 

Shirley met Jack when she was only 21 years old and hence, he taught her absolutely everything - from partying to living together. But, he was unfaithful and easy-going, which drove a wedge between them.

Let's come back to their 3 sons, shall we? 

Yes, we have mentioned Shaun, Patrick, and Ryan, but now it's time to dive into the ocean. Shaun became a teen idol in the late '70s, starring in "The Hardy Boys Mysteries" series, and breaking away. Patrick also followed parents' footsteps and became a musical theater and television actor, best known for "How The West Was Fun" and "Dress Gray." Sadly, nothing is known about their youngest brother, Ryan.
