Jewel Announces Official Divorce Plans on Fan Blog

Jewel and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Ty Murray, have jointly announced their upcoming divorce. The couple has been together for 16 years, married for six and have one young son together. They made the announcement on Jewel’s blog, so that -- according to the singer-songwriter -- her fans could find out from her directly rather than from the tabloids.

Jewel, who is now 40 years of age, married her professional bull-riding boyfriend, Ty Murray, who is now 44 years of age, in 2008 after a 10-year dating relationship. Jewel told her fans that she and her husband have always worked toward living authentically, and now they have realized their lives will be happier and better apart. She said that they were breaking apart with love instead of malice.

Both Jewel and Ty went on to reiterate their commitment to raising their son together and growing into their new roles as co-parents and dear friends rather than being spouses. A joint statement from the duo said that they are unwaveringly dedicated to their son and being the best parents they can be. They said that they felt a peaceful uncoupling with love was in the best interest of their own personal growth as separate individuals and to the future well-being of their son.

Very few Arizona spouses would disagree with the idea that a peaceful breakup is always preferred to a contentious divorce. Those who feel that a peaceful uncoupling is possible in their divorce can take some important steps to achieve that goal during the legal process of their separation. This is especially true during negotiations over child support and child custody arrangements, and while finalizing their asset division and divorce agreements. Employing the use of mediation proceedings and other out-of-court settlement strategies can also be useful to help Arizona couples achieve their goal of a peaceful and loving separation.
