The divorce documents cite "irreconcilable differences." Lane wants her name restored to Diane Lane -- it's currently Diane Lane Brolin.

Diane Lane
is the one who threw in the towel ... we've learned she's the one who filed legal docs for divorce from Josh Brolin.

We found the legal docs, which were filed February 15 -- right after Valentine's Day -- in L.A. County Superior Court.

We know Lane claims she has been separated from Brolin for quite a while, although the legal date of separation on the docs is listed as February 13.

They definitely had issues in the past. Four months after they married in 2004, Brolin was arrested for spousal battery, but Lane recanted her story and charges were never filed.

He was also arrested for fighting in a bar in Louisiana in 2008. Drinking was involved. Interestingly, when he was arrested, he turned to his buddy, actor Jeffrey Wright, and said, "My wife is gonna be so happy."  The charges were eventually dismissed.

And Brolin was arrested in Santa Monica this past New Year's Day for public intoxication.

Nonetheless ... a source connected with the couple tells TMZ ... "There were no dark issues between them. They still love and respect each other. This was a successful marriage that ran its course."

It's not surprising she filed ... living with an alcoholic is not fun. If he hasn't given up the bottle by now, he probably never will - sad but true.

“Oh poor Josh Brolin. I didn’t know he was a wife beater, poor him. I hope he turns his life around poor baby.” Are some people hypocritical or just racist or both? Josh Brolin is a 50 year old alcoholic, repeated wife beater. Chris Brown at 23 gets thrown to the wolves for the fight he had with Rihanna, which she started by the way with her high heel shoe. Some people are sickening. It’s still 1950 in Mississippi.

Gotta love strong intelligent women who don't get caught up in the feminist lies but instead discuss the facts about domestic violence, which is usually mutual

Feminist Myth: "When women drop charges it's because they're afraid of the man!"
-
Fact: Women often drop charges because:
1) they know they played a part in the fight and/or 2) they're afraid if it goes to court the public will find out that they too assaulted hubby ;)
