In yet another celebrity split, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have announced they have decided to divorce. The joint statement was given to CNN and asks that their privacy and the privacy of their children be respected during this difficult time in their lives.
For one lesbian couple in Texas, the five-minute hearing in front of a state district court judge in Tarrant County may be one of the first few in the state that actually ended in divorce. For almost two years, the couple had been trying to divorce, but the laws at the state and federal levels did not coincide. As a result, the couple's split has been followed closely in the media because of their appeal of the court's initial ruling.
