Over the years, we have seen so many high-profile Hollywood couple getting together, before then having a very public fallout and splitting up, sometimes openly criticising one another in the press. However, it is not always like this, and there are some occasions when a couple are able to split up but still remain amicable, which is always good to see, especially when children are involved.
The Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik was married to her husband Michael Stone for nine years, before the couple brought their marriage to an end back in 2013. Now, Mayim has spoken out to praise her ex-husband for being there for their two children, Frederick 8, and Miles 10, admitting that it makes her life a lot easier.
Bialik explained, "I'm a working mom and every night when I'm working, he's the one feeding them dinner, giving them a bath, reading them goodnight stories, tucking them in and making sure they sleep well. The best thing I can do is be tremendously grateful for what a wonderful ex-husband I have and what a great dad he is and to continue to shatter the image of the perfect family I thought my intact family would be."
She added, "Being divorced is not a fun way to raise kids. Things my ex did when we were married that annoyed me then, annoy me still. Life is not a dress rehearsal. My kids get one chance to be kids and this is their situation. I have to put them first because I'm their mom and he's their dad."
It is always nice to see an ex couple managing to get on well together after their divorce, which certainly helps to make things a bit easier on the children involved. It is a shame that more couples cannot end in a more amicable way.
