Mayim Bialik And Husband Michael Stone Are Headed For Divorce Court
Rather than hope the paparazzi didn't catch wind of the deterioration of her relationship, current Big Bang Theory and former Blossom star Mayim Bialik decided to air her dirty laundry this morning. She and longtime husband Michael Stone are headed for divorce court, and before you jump to any conclusions, the way they've chosen to parent their children had nothing to do with the hard decision.
Bialik said as much in a surprise statement on her blog this afternoon. Calling the split “painful and incomprehensible for the children”, the actress vowed to work alongside Stone to transition into two separate yet loving homes in the near future. You can take a look at a portion of the statement below…
”Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health and that's what we are focusing on. Our privacy has always been important and is even more so now, and we thank you in advance for respecting it as we negotiate this new terrain.”
Bialik and Stone have attracted plenty of headlines over the years for sharing a bed with their children and trying to be as close and hands on as possible in their lives. Regardless of one's feelings on their particular choices, no one has ever accused the two of not having their two sons' best interests at heart. Hopefully, they can truly keep that vision in mind. Divorce is always far easier on the children when each parent wants the kids to like the other.
It's unclear what arrangement the now former couple will choose for the children moving forward, but more than likely, she will retain custody of all the family hats.
