I suppose they mean well by showing that they are staying friends. But if they can throw a big event to celebrate their time together with "photos, memories and dancing",couldn't they put some of that energy and sentimentality into staying married? I love celebrities who have kids with someone, but they say they aren't ready for the commitment of marriage. Children aren't a commitment?

Omg..such bitter people on this thread! Would you rather hear about weeks of bitter fighting, drama on the children and emotional trauma on all involved? yes, they may be divorcing but this also shows that they will remain committed AS PARENTS and friends overall. What in the heck is so wrong and horrible about that??? I have seen too many people getting divorces who treat each other horribly, use the children as weapons, use hurtful language about their ex in front of kids etc. This shows that they are more mature and understanding about what their divorce will mean to their children. Its not a celebration of an ending but rather a celebration of a new beginning that will be happier for them all. Would you rather they stay together in a loveless marriage? that to me is worse that having a party. GOOD FOR THEM AND SCREW EVERYONE WHO HATES ON THEM FOR IT.

joeygirl45 - how in the heck would YOU know what their children are feeling? Are you involved in their lives? Just because its a divorce does NOT mean that the children are miserable. I am a proud daughter of divorced parents and believe me, they would have made MY life miserable if they stayed together. I'm sure they had a long talk with their kids about what was going on and I would be very surprised if the kids WEREN'T at the party. Such ignorance I swear!

I don't think they were "technically" married. Didn't they just go thru some ritual presided over by a shaman while on vacation in Brazil? I heard they later had the union blessed by the Catholic church, but I still don't think that makes it a legal marriage. Common-law perhaps?
