Likely shocking many country music fans, a couple who once sang about love in a duet before getting married have announced they are divorcing. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have been married for four years, but a judge is reportedly expected to end their union today.
A report from TMZ doesn't explain the reason behind the divorce, but says the family has issued a statement asking for privacy during "this very personal matter." They expressed that this was not the future they had envisioned for themselves.
It seems Blake filed for divorce a while ago and that all the financial issues regarding the split have been worked out. Their assets were reportedly easy to split because the couple had a prenuptial agreement in place.
Miranda will reportedly get a family home located in Nashville while Blake will get a ranch located in Oklahoma. The divorce filing was made in the state of Oklahoma. Miranda reportedly has show animals that lived on the ranch and she has moved them to a different location in the last few days.
As our Florida readers can see, although this couple likely has a large variety of assets, a prenuptial agreement has likely made their divorce substantially more amicable. Although no one goes into marriage preparing for an eventual divorce, it can be extremely helpful to have a solid prenuptial agreement in place in case the marriage does end. The positive aspect of a prenuptial agreement is that it is usually agreed upon when the two individuals are on good terms.
