Filmmaker Michael Moore to divorce

Twenty-one years of marriage can evaporate in a snap, which is the case for filmmaker Michael Moore as he has filed for divorce after 21 years of marriage to Kathleen Glynn, his collaborator on the Oscar-winning "Bowling for Columbine" and other projects.

Moore filed a divorce complaint June 17 in Michigan's Antrim County, where the couple has a lakefront home. The complaint reveals that their relationship has broken down and "there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved."

Clerk of Court Sheryl Guy said Monday that Glynn has not filed a response.

A final hearing is scheduled for Sept. 10.

Moore and Glynn married in Flint in 1991. Among Glynn's credits is her listing as producer or executive producer for many of Moore's eye-opening, and sometimes controversy-spwaning documentary films, including "Fahrenheit 9/11," ''Sicko" and "Capitalism: A Love Story."

Whether a marriage is between celebrities living in Hollywood, or ordinary, day-to-day people living in Virginia, or any other state,"'til death do us part" does not always hold water and marriages can and do break up. While divorce proceedings for those of us who don't make blockbuster movies, or star in them, lack the media saturation or sensationalism that can attend divorces between celebrities, the implications of a divorce are the same. Property and assets need to be divided, and if children are involved, custody also has to be addressed. Couples with large estates need a divorce attorney who is attuned to what is fair for both sides, particularly if children are involved.
