Dennis Quaid's Wife

Files For Separation

Divorce to Follow

Dennis Quaid's wife, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, has filed for legal separation ... but sources tell us it's only a formality and the legal docs will be changed to a full-on divorce in several months.

Kimberly is asking for joint legal and sole physical custody of the couple's 4-year-old twins.  She's down with Dennis getting visitation. 

Kimberly, who's repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser, also wants spousal support and attorney's fees.

Kimberly filed for divorce in March but withdrew her petition 2 months later.

A source connected with the couple say "Kimberly is fed up with Dennis' cheating and wants out of the marriage."  The source added, "He's not a good husband."

Here's the snag.  They moved to California during the summer, and there's a 6-month residency requirement before someone can file for divorce, so she has to wait it out a few more months before pulling the trigger.

As you know, the couple has been through a lot.  The twins almost died shortly after birth because they were given a massive overdose of a drug at the hospital.

Dennis and Kimberly have been married for 8 years.

He has always been a cheater. She should have
Learnt from the fact tha he cheated on Meg Ryan time after time after time. He is a loser. I hope she grabs her kids, a good chunck of money and runs away from him fast. He is not going to change his cheating ways. Ever.

I really hate cheaters. That's such a disrespectful thing to do to your partner. If you're in an unhappy relationship work on it or get out of it with your dignity intact.

What's the matter with this guy? He had adorable Meg Ryan, then this wife and two precious daughters, and he still couldn't keep them from leaving. These characters need to know that women just aren't going to put up with thir husbands' philandering any more.
