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."

"This was a successful marriage that ran its course."

What a fabulously oxymoronical perspective.

Successful marriages don't run a course. They work

http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/2013/02/diane-lane-rule-5.html Diane Lane is great and I wish her the best. Josh Brolin can go hang with Dad and Babs.

"A successful marriage that had run its course??" Seriously? Oxymorons aren't a good thing to use in press releases. A successful marriage is defined as one that hasn't run its course.

OMG, "
This was a successful marriage that ran its course."... are you fricking kidding me...what s so successful about it? That has to be by far the stupiest statement ever made in the history of the english language! A wife beating drunk does not one make a success of anything except of course just being a f'k-up!
