Heidi Klum and Seal cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their separation. Do “irreconcilable differences” matter in Louisiana divorce law? No, they don’t. Louisiana allows parties to divorce each other for no reason at all as long as they have lived apart long enough for the law to conclude that they have no intention of being husband and wife. For spouses without minor children, that time period is six months. For spouses with minor children, it is one year.
