Mel Gibson's wife of 28 years files for divorce

cross-posted from A Catholic View

The wife of actor Mel Gibson filed for divorce on Monday after 28 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
In divorce papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, Robyn Gibson asked for her 1980 marriage to the "Lethal Weapon" actor to be ended, and in a joint statement the couple, who have seven children, sought privacy.
"Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so," the statement said.
Late on Monday, the actor and director of movies including "Braveheart" and "The Passion of The Christ," filed a response saying the two had been separated since August 26, 2006.

This leaves me very sad. He seems to have squandered the potential to be an outstanding husband and father.

well at least most of the Gibson kids are moved out; maybe this will minimize collateral damage from the divorce
