Last we discussed the potential benefits of collaborative divorce and how it helps divorcing couples in Florida maintain important relationships; most notably with their children. In fact, a number of celebrities rely on the process because it keeps negative images of them out of the press. (While they may not say it, some celebrities are very particular about their public personas).
With the number of divorces traditionally initiated in January, the concept of collaborative divorce is not such a popular topic. Divorcing couples typically engage in a dance of veiled threats and subversive moves in an attempt to gain a tactical advantage in the proceedings. Not only is this an unproductive use of resources, it calls for a tremendous amount of emotional energy.
In the midst of the nuptial news with Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss, the engagement announcement George Lucas and Mellody Hobson, we've taken quite a bit of time to talk about prenuptial agreements. (Essentially, they are written contracts that order the division of assets and personal property.)
With the recent news of Star Wars creator George Lucas marrying his longtime girlfriend, Ariel Investments president Mellody Hobson, we can't help but to speculate as to what their prenuptial agreement will include (if they decide to use one at all). Indeed, celebrity prenuptial agreements can certainly make headlines for the unique requests and requirements that come with them, as well as the trends that they set for young people seeking to tie the knot.
2013 is only a day old, and we already have compelling celebrity baby news. The rumors (and this story) actually began on Christmas Day, when Jessica Simpson announced that she and fiancé Eric Johnson would be welcoming their second child in the New Year. She tweeted a photo of their daughter Maxwell sitting on a beach with the words "BIG SIS" etched in the sand. Simpson also posted a photo of her pregnant belly a few days ago.
