Family law: Film stars Rebecca Gayheart, Eric Dane to divorce

There are many reasons that couples give when they decide to divorce. Celebrity marriages, in particular, are notorious for ending in dramatic fashion. However, some New Jersey residents and others who are not familiar with family law might be surprised to find that many marriages, including a number of celebrity marriages, end for what seems to be no specific reason. 

After 14 years of marriage, actress Rebecca Gayheart, has filed for divorce from her husband, actor Eric Dane. The pair stated that there were irreconcilable differences behind the cause of their divorce. The couple has chosen not to share any specific differences or problems in their marriage, but the two have had their share of hardships in the last 14 years. Some of these hardships include the release of a personal video, a stint in rehab and depression. 

While the couple intends to go through with the divorce, they have not yet separated. The two celebrities also intend to remain friends and continue to work together to raise their two children. Gayheart has even requested that she and Dane share custody of their daughters rather than insisting on full custody. She is also seeking spousal support from Dane.

There are a wide variety of reasons for couples to divorce. However, not all of those reasons are dramatic or easily recognizable. Sometimes couples may simply grow apart, or realize that they would rather be friends rather than spouses. Couples in New Jersey who have decided to divorce may wish to speak to an attorney familiar with family law in their area.
