SEPARATE BUT NOT APART?

Danny DeVito and his wife of 40 years, Rhea Perlman, announced in October of 2012 that they were separating according to the November 5, 2012 issue of People. However, the marriage is not necessarily over, according to DeVito. He and his wife are “working on it.” In Louisiana, in order for living apart to constitute grounds for a divorce, only one spouse must intend to permanently leave the other. Keep that in mind if you are “working on” your marriage after your spouse has moved out. See a divorce lawyer to make sure your rights are protected.
