Music fans across California were likely surprised to hear that legendary entertainer Stevie Wonder recently filed for divorce. However, the couple has reportedly been separated since 2009, and has been living separate lives. Wonder recently made the separation permanent and legal, though, when he cited irreconcilable differences in his divorce filing.
The decision to divorce a spouse is never easy, and it is not something that happens overnight. Often, a divorce happens after all other solutions have been explored. A California couple may try counseling, relocation or separation before ultimately deciding that a marriage has run its course. Though never easy, divorces can go more smoothly when two people are committed to a peaceful resolution.
Although divorce may be more common these days, many California couples are opting to try out a separation first in many cases. Separations are quite common. In fact, some sources say that it is more common for a couple to go through a separation first than it is for couples to immediately divorce. This could mean that if you and your spouse are considering a separation, it may not hurt to be prepared for ending the relationship in a divorce.
