While some marriages last for decades before the topic of divorce is even considered, other marriages are short-lived. In many cases it's very hard to know exactly how long a marriage will last and it's probably safe to say that nobody expects to divorce soon after they get married.
It was recently reported that Florida State Senator Joseph Abruzzo filed for divorce from his wife Brandy. The two were apparently only married for just over one year. Abruzzo's wife recently gave birth to their son. The two married in Tallahassee after two years of being together. The two were apparently separated in April, which is around the time their child was born.
Abruzzo's wife is an aesthetician and is apparently known for being an Internet model. Days after the two married last year Abruzzo said he stood by his wife no matter what, explaining that the explicit photos of her that were on the Internet were taken when she was younger.
Abruzzo is apparently full custody of their son, claiming that it is in the best interest of the child. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for his decision to divorce.
Divorce can affect anyone at any stage of their marriage. While some may be able to stay married for a long time, others have their reasons for divorcing early in their marriage. It is unclear what caused the couple to split so early in their marriage. It will be interesting to see what kind of child custody arrangement is reached in this case. It is reported that Brandy also has a young daughter and was previously married.
