Madonna has been at the top of the headlines since the early 1980’s but lately a majority of her press has resulted from her impending divorce. A New York Times Article recently stated that:

But on Friday, Madonna, the singer, and Mr. Ritchie, the film director, were granted a preliminary decree of divorce by a London court, The Associated Press reported. The couple, who were married at a ceremony in a Scottish castle in 2000, were granted the decree in a brief hearing that neither attended; the divorce can become final after six weeks and one day. According to papers released by the court, the report said, Madonna petitioned for divorce, citing Mr. Ritchie’s “unreasonable behavior.” The two are expected to share custody of their sons, Rocco, 8, and David Banda, 3. Madonna also has a daughter, Lourdes, 12, from a previous relationship.

Madonna’s divorce appears to be looming closer. Divorces in London are much different than divorces in Florida. Actually, each state in the US has different rules and procedures for dealing with a dissolution of a marriage.
