John and his wife, Elaine Mellencamp, a model, have split, although his rep isn't saying if they've filed divorce papers yet.

The couple says they "are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family."

John and Elaine will continue to raise their two kids in Indiana.

A 20-year marriage is a good run for sure, so we ask ...

At first look I thought it was a semi cleaned up Mickey Rourke.

Fail! Divorce is fail no matter the years.

You have to excuse John. He is old and feeble-minded. He did not realize he was married.

#13 She ain't pretty and he looks like the old fart he is... if they've been together twenty years I think it's pretty ignorant of both of them to think they are going to move on to greener pastures. They both need to get off the steroids and play out their role as grandparents or whatever...

Of course the marriage is a failure . It ended with divorce. John seems like a DB.

By the looks of him, she must have gotten tired of faking orgasms after 20 years. Hell, ya have to give her credit, she did it for 20 long years. She deserves an Oscar, a Tony, a Peabody award or something. Not many women could put up with him for that long. His other two wives bailed for freedom much sooner than she did.

She'll rebound after him very quickly. She's gorgeous and stinking rich, thanks to him. Life goes on either way, but life with a huge bank account is even better.

Love John. Sorry to hear this but I think it's his 3rd marriage. She's not running from the Midwest so far.

Any marriage union that ends in divorce is a failure, I don't care how many years they have been married and after 20 years of marriage these two should have had their marriage on lock.

why be hateful    

I've been married for 30 years and I don't judge people as much as I used to. I hope that they can separate amicably. It may be the best choice for all involved. I wish them well.
