Why are we so mad at Arnold?

Are we mad because he had a child with another women or because he hid the child or because he cheated on America’s royal sweetheart?  Or all of the above? A bit confusing really since we know that infidelity happens all the time and is responsible for many marriage breakups. And let’s face it  – […]

Taking the high road – Bronfman’s divorce party; Arnold Schwarzwenegger and Maria Shriver’s separation

A common complaint spouses have over their divorce is about lack of control. Indeed, divorce has its own procedures, protocols, customs and laws – and many of them a total mystery to the average person until they come face-to-face with the reality of divorce. It’s common to hear people say things like “I can’t believe […]

The Oscar Curse

There is a lot of buzz these days about the Oscar Curse and it may well be true according to researchers at the University of Toronto, who found that women that have won best actress are over fifty percent more likely to divorce than those who were simply nominated. Let’s be clear: since this accounts […]

Celebrity Divorce: Troy Aikman

When the former Dallas Cowboy quarterback announced his separation, I was happy to see so little gossip on the subject. It seems like both parents are keeping their cards close to the chest. This is something that I admire. Too many celebrities – or their spouses – share the unhappy details of a failing marriage. […]

A bad week for celebrity divorces

I have been very busy with putting together the next issue of Divorce Magazine. Still, I can’t help but notice how many celebrity couples split up in the last week because we write about them on Among them are Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds, “Nip & Tuck“ star Dylan Walsh and Joanna Going, Vanessa Hudgens and […]

(Mel Gisbson, Paul McCartney etc.) This is not because of the reson for the divorce (such as infidelity or domestic violence) but more because of the way the celebrities handle the situation. Sometimes, both of them or their lawyers are in the media talking at each […]

Gore’s Daughter Separates from Husband

Following up on last week’s post that former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper Gore announced their separation, we now learn of yet another Gore separation. CNN Political Ticker reports that the Gore’s oldest daughter, Karenna Gore Schiff, has separated from her husband of 13 years. Do you think that Karenna felt she had […]

Sandra Bullock’s relationship trouble brings up the rights of step mothers

America’s sweetheart and Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock reportedly is having marriage trouble because of her husband Jesse James’ admission of infidelity.  I am sure this story will be covered widely for many more weeks to come. What is interesting to me is her rights to her step children, if we assume that she wants […]

Sanford Divorce Trial Televised?

I see that the governor Mark Sandford’s wife’s court appearance was televised.  I wondered if there was a choice for it not to be televised.  I then remind myself that they do not have to appear in court. This can be done behind the scene. There is an option for all of us to file for […]
