Say It Isn’t So!!!! Chris Rock files for divorce from his wife Malaak after 19 years of marriage. What is really going on? Is there a Happily Ever After anymore? According to a statement from Chris Rock’s lawyer to People magazine and his soon to be ex-wife Malaak.
The actor, 49, and Malaak, 45, exchanged vows in 1996. The couple has been residing in New Jersey, where they are raising their two daughters, Lola Simone, 12, and Zahra Savannah, 10.
About 80% of divorces are initiated by the wife. I wonder if it is a matter of the two growing apart or personal interests have drifted outside of their union. Well I am glad the two are committed to the welfare of their children. Both of their kids are in the pre-adolescent stage. While divorce for children is hard, I believe this tender age where kids are discovering change to their bodies, personalities in becoming young adults and figuring who they are, it becomes more critical on how two parents deal with the separation for the sake of their children.
I wish them the best in finding an amenable solution.
