Actress Susan Sarandon’s actress daughter Ava Amurri has separated from her husband of eight years. The couple, along with their two children, recently moved into a renovated, historical home in Connecticut, but they are apparently heading for divorce. Amurri and Kyle Martino are expecting their third child.  

The couple has a 5-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son, and another son is on the way. In a joint statement the couple said their family is headed in a new direction and have decided to lovingly part ways as a couple. They say they are committed to raising their children together, citing they are close friends who respect each other. The two had been in therapy prior to conceiving their third child, but made the decision together to part ways as a married couple.

Amurri said the two had different parenting styles for the most part of their relationship as parents. However, she says they are now on the same page on how to raise their children. The couple planned on having two children, but Amurri says she came around to the idea of having a third at the desire of her husband and believes the child now on the way was meant to be a part of their family.

Making the decision to divorce is never an easy one, whether one is in the public eye or not and especially when children are involved. A Connecticut attorney can help a client who has questions about the process and how divorce may affect his or her children. Divorce may actually be a positive solution when looking at the larger picture. It may be the end of a couple, but not the end of a family.
