Canadian Celebrity and Wife Decide to Part Ways
The path to and through divorce is different for every couple. Some couples deal with emotional, financial and even safety issues that make it difficult or impossible to work through a divorce in an amicable fashion. Other couples are able to seek divorce through a collaborative law process, working together to close out a marriage that just didn’t work out. While no one right method of divorce exists, it is true that collaborative divorce can be simpler in terms of arguments and amicable agreements about child custody and other issues.
One celebrity couple with ties to Canada seems to be working through the divorce process in an amicable fashion. The couple is David Foster and his wife Yolanda. David Foster is a Canadian and a music producer known for work in major motion pictures and television shows.
The couple was married after both individuals had experienced at least one divorce. Yolanda had been previously married and has three children ranging from age 16 to 20 from that marriage. David had been married three times prior to marrying Yolanda. He has five children from previous relationships.
According to reports, David and Yolanda Foster did not have any children together. In 2012, Yolanda contracted Lyme disease, and there is some speculation that marital woes began around that time, particularly in light of a statement released by the couple to news media. In the statement, the couple said they enjoyed their nine years together and that they experienced what they called “inevitable challenges” in their marriage. The couple listed blended families, careers and health issues as some challenges they experienced.
The statement from the couple seems to indicate they are seeking an amicable end to marriage. Working with a legal professional, you can also use collaborative law to seek an amicable divorce.
