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."

Who wrote this and what kind of a retard are you? A successful marriage never runs it's course. A successful marriage never ends. Does it even take a GED to get a job @ TMZ?

Eight years together is NOT a successful marriage that has run its course! - A marriage ending in divorce is not successful. Hollywood, forever making **** up.

I know from my own experiences in my youth, alcohol changes a person. More times than none for the bad not the better. For myself, I am spiritual, not religious, but embrace the attributes of our Creator saying God is love, and so coupled with that, forgiveness begins the healing and love completes it. No one should ever take abuse. My humble opinion.

Most domestic violence is mutual.
-
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) published domestic violence study finding one-fourth of relationships had violence, about half of which was reciprocal.
Researchers found that..."in nonreciprocally violent relationships, women were the perpetrators in more than 70% of the cases"...and men incurred significant injuries (including permanent disability and death from weapons)

ummm...a successful marriage is one that didn't end in divorce or a separation. TMZ - i'm really starting to be disappointed by you. You are turning into a propaganda machine for the Kardashians and half of the articles you write are just sheer stupidity.
