Living in California, it's hard not to notice what's going on with Hollywood couples. Thinking about how these couples juggle their high-profile jobs, relationships and even kids can appear effortless in the media. However, the reality is that high-profile couples often have the same struggles as normal couples and families living in Santa Rosa. One high-profile couple, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, recently announced their separation in a shocking social media post.
In addition to being Hollywood stars with high profile careers and a slew of high value assets, they are also the proud parents of their son. For his sake, they requested privacy at this time, which is understandable as their family is in transition. The couple has been married nearly a decade before they decided to call it quits and have starred in several big productions between the two of them and have acquired several assets both prior to and during the marriage.
Because of their high-profile status and careers prior to the marriage, it's entirely possible that a plan may have been in place to help guide the couple in case of a divorce. This agreement is sometimes known as a prenuptial agreement. Prenuptial agreements can help to mitigate how assets may be divided in case a couple decides to end the marriage. It's important to know that a prenuptial agreement can include things about asset division but cannot generally include clauses specific to child custody decisions.
Per the press release, it appears that the couple is amicable and working together to sort out their process of divorce. It appears that their focus is on their child and trying to work together to make that transition as smooth as possible for him. This is isn't a bad focus to have and if possible, divorcing parents should consider this strategy. Naturally there may be some unresolved negative feelings but there will be a time to work through those as well.
