Murray and Jewel divorce following close to 6 years of marriage

It's likely that you've heard about the country singer Jewel in Massachusetts, or perhaps you've heard about her soon-to-be ex-husband who is known for his rodeo career. They have been together for 16 years, close to six of which have been while they've been married. They are now reportedly getting a divorce, hoping to find greater happiness outside their relationship.

According to Jewel, 40, she and her husband would like to continue raising their son as partners. Their child will be 3 in July. They are reportedly committed to raising their child together as friends. She claims they hold each other in high esteem and believe they will be able to grow from their separation.

There has been no real news on why the couple has decided to split up, but Jewel claimed that it was because the relationship had stifled them, stopping them from growing anymore as people. Since they felt that they could be happier apart, divorce was the only answer that made sense.

When going through a divorce after being married for several years, the ties you have to one another can make it difficult to separate. In cases like Jewel and Ty Murray's, they have worked together to separate in what appears to be as positive a manner as possible. Many people do go through amicable divorces, and not all of them result in long, drawn-out court cases.

If your divorce isn't going that smoothly, though, then mediation is an option that you may want to try. With some help, you and your ex will be able to figure out who should get what and move on with your lives. In even the worst and most volatile situations, a judge or court can help you work through your assets and custody issues to allow both of you to move on.
