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. This is the price of fame. But there are children involved and they must be protected.

Tipper and Al Gore handled their breakup privately, which is a model for all celebrities. Troy and Rhonda Aikman both appear to be dealing with their difficulties with maturity as well.

It sounds like there is some love left in this marriage, at least for their children.
