After brief separation, Clint Eastwood's wife files for divorce

Making the decision to end a marriage is not something that typically happens over night. Many relationships go through difficult periods of fighting and reconciliation, mediation and trial separations before one or both spouses decides that the best solution is to get a divorce. When and if couples get to this point, it is important to remember that, like any major change in a relationship, it can be confusing, emotional and difficult to adjust to the change.

Clint Eastwood's wife, Dina Eastwood, may have been struggling with these challenges recently before she ultimately filed for divorce. According to reports, the couple has gone back and forth between separation and reconciliation recently, but Dina ultimately filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

The split may have come as a surprise to many people. Initially, signs pointed to reconciliation after Dina filed, and then quickly withdrew, a petition for legal separation. The two appeared to be on the mend, but as many couples in San Diego will likely understand, the long-time couple could not resolve their issues. 

The two will now be faced with some new issues as they go through the process of ending their marriage. The couple has been married for 17 years and they share a 16-year-old daughter together. Dina has reportedly requested that she and 83-year-old Clint share joint legal custody, but she is also asking for physical custody. Reports indicate that they do have a prenuptial agreement in place, which could make areas like spousal support easier to settle, but that there may be some challenges in dividing up property.

Many couples in California can sympathize with Dina's apparent hesitancy in taking steps to formally and legally ending her marriage. Not only can it be emotionally difficult, but the divorce process can be confusing and intimidating to navigate. However, with the help of an attorney, a person can work toward a satisfying divorce agreement and begin a new chapter in life.
