Chris Rock files for divorce from his wife of 19 years

For some people, going through a divorce is a lonely journey. Those people might find some measure of comfort knowing that they aren't alone. Our Texas readers who are going through a divorce might find it interesting to know that after almost two decades of marriage, comedian Chris Rock and his wife have decided to end their marriage.

Rock is the one who filed for the divorce, according to his attorney. The couple is asking for privacy as they go their separate ways. The couple will have to split their assets. They will also have to determine issues related to their children. They have a 12-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old daughter.

Rock's wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, says that she is aware of life's blessings despite being faced with difficulty. Rock has called his family an inspiration. He has also said in the past that comedians like to work alone so he understands that he is not the ideal man for a marriage.

Someone close to the Rocks said that the divorce was a long time in the making; however, the couple said they were happy on numerous occasions. This just goes to show that even people who seem happy might have problems that they can't overcome.

For those going through a divorce, learning about the rights they have can help them to ensure those rights are protected. Learning about specific issues that affect them, such as child custody or property division can help them to be prepared as they work their way through the divorce process.
