When it comes to ending a marriage, the reasons vary from one to the next. Sometimes, it is as simple as irreconcilable differences, and the finalized divorce is hassle-free. Other times, however, accusations are flung from both sides, and acrimony replaces matrimony. Ohio Supreme Court Justice Pat DeWine and his wife, Rhonda, are getting a divorce after an 18-month separation.
Some Ohio married couples go through a lot together and then decide things are just not working. Getting a divorce seems to be the only option for both to have peace of mind and hope for the future. A popular news anchor and her husband have filed for divorce after 10 years of marriage.
Money is listed as one of the top reasons couples divorce. Money problems between Ohio couples do not just end with filing for the dissolution of the marriage, however, but can continue and even escalate when it comes to dividing assets and debts, and settling on child and spousal support amounts. Former hedge fund manager, Buddy Fletcher, claims he is now broke and wants his wife, Ellen Pao and former interim CEO of Reddit, to pay him spousal support.
When two Ohioans choose to end their marriage, some concessions might have to be made on both sides before it is final. Coming to a divorce agreement may take months or even years before the two can decide on a mutually acceptable agreement. Michael Fleiss, the creator of the famed "Bachelor" TV series, and his wife, Laura, have finally reached an agreement in their divorce proceedings.
People have fought over money ever since it was invented. An Ohio divorce is often no different. Fighting over asset and debt division, spousal support and child support amounts can bring out the worst in two people who may have seemingly already reached the point of hostility. The wife of an elevator company CEO is said to be dragging out the divorce between the couple so that it is lasting longer than their 14-month marriage.
Money issues are said to be among the top reasons Ohio couples end their marriage. Many couples fight about money while they are married and they continue the fight after the divorce. Former NBA star Kevin Garnett and his wife, Brandi are fighting about prenuptial agreement details as they go through their divorce.
While winning the Ohio lottery can be a source of extreme happiness to some, to others it can cause great frustration. Couples going through a divorce, for instance, may have a difficult time agreeing on a fair settlement when lottery winnings come into play. Those cases often end up in court, where a judge or panel decides who will get what. Two couples who each finalized their divorce last year took their respective cases to court for help in their settlements.
Like many couples in Ohio and across the country, Matt Lauer and his wife, Annette Roque, experienced a travesty in their marital relationship from which they could not recover. Back in 2017, Lauer lost his job on the "Today" show due to numerous extramarital affairs. Since that time, the pair has been working on their divorce settlement. With a significant amount of wealth at stake, negotiating an agreement requires time and attention to detail.
Some Ohio divorces settlements go smoothly but some do not. When the former partners cannot agree on child and spousal support, the division of debts and assets or other financial decisions, the court has to get involved in the finalization of the divorce. A former cast member of HBO's comedy series Entourage, Kevin Dillon and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jane Stuart are getting a divorce.
While some celebrity marriages last many years, others do not. It may be the relentless public scrutiny or simply that the chemistry between them is wrong but it seems divorce comes swiftly to those constantly in the public eye. Ohio fans of the popular "Pitch Perfect" movies may distress over the news that two of the married co-stars from the films have decided to divorce.
