Shaq Files For Divorce

It looks like another celebrity marriage has hit the divorce road. Shaquille O'Neal has filed for divorce from his wife of five years. It appears that there was a Prenuptial Agreement which should help to protect Mr. O'Neal's millions, but it won't help resolve any issues related to the children. As we have seen in the Spears v. Federline divorce debacle, a prenuptial agreement does not and cannot resolve issues related to child custody and child support. Therefore, many celebrity divorces still become "ugly" because there is no real way to predestine what will happen with a couple's children, because the best interest of the child standard will always prevail. Hopefully for the O'Neal's sake, their divorce is finalized in a relatively news unworthy way, because that most certainly would lead all of us to believe that they are putting their differences aside in order to put the needs of their children first.
