No more waiting. After a year of separation, Kate Beckinsale‘s estranged husband, Len Wiseman, has filed for a celebrity divorce. According to UsMagazine.com, TMZ stated that Wiseman cited irreconcilable differences, and neither of them are asking for spousal support. Us confirmed back in November 2015 that the celebrity couple was separating after 11 years of marriage. “They tried to make it work, but they end up falling back into old habits and fighting,” a source said.

This split has turned into a celebrity divorce. What are some reasons to try a separation prior to a divorce?

Cupid’s Advice:

When fighting with your spouse, divorce doesn’t have to be the answer. Sometimes, it’s best to separate for a while until a decision is made. Cupid is here with some relationship advice:

1. Distance makes the heart grow fonder: It may just be that you and your partner need space from each other. Take a break from the constant fighting and split up to see if you end up missing each other more than you thought. If you both do, then you know the situation is worth trying to fix.

2. Stop the fighting: Unfortunately, if you’re like Kate and her ex-husband, being separated won’t stop the fighting. However, you don’t know until you try it. See where staying away from each other takes you, and maybe your fights will seem minor.

3. Find the one: Time apart means you may find someone else who sparks your love interest. If it’s not your significant other, then you know you’re on the way to divorce. You can tell if you still love them or not, especially if someone news appears in your life.
