All the best to both Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe as their divorce nears its finalization. The former highly regarded Hollywood couple's union was officially terminated last Friday, with the Los Angeles Superior Court reinstating the camera-ready twosome's right to remarry. Theirs was a dignified parting with no third party emergence with hours, weeks or months of their formal split from one another making the parting and subsequent divorce just a dignified as their marriage.
While the dissolution of marriage has been formalized and signed off on by none other than Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon, who's currently also handling Britney Spears' legal issues, the court still must finalize the divorce, as financial and custody arrangements over their children—daughter Ava, 8, and son Deacon, 3—still have to be worked out.
I am certain they will continue to handle the dissolution of their formal union and custodial matters regarding their children with the utmost discretion and voidance of a media circus or publicly noted scandal. Hats off to Ryan for not running off with another woman even if there was one before his divorce was even granted, formalized or finalized. It shows a great level of self-respect and decency for not just for himself, but also for Reece. Very Classy indeed!
