Minnesota residents know that a divorce can be devastating to both of the parties involved as well as the children. The process can even be more difficult if the couple has been together for a long time. It now appears that one famous musician couple has decided to end their marriage and join the long list of famous musicians who could not make their marriage work.

Celebrity musicians Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have both decided to end their 13-year marriage. The couple announced their decision to divorce in a statement that was released to a Hollywood website. The couple asked the media for privacy during this time.

Stefani and Rossdale met 20 years ago when their bands, No Doubt and Bush toured together. They dated for seven years before getting married while in London in 2002. They then repeated the ceremony in Los Angeles two weeks later. While Rossdale continued his career as a musician, Stefani branched out into other areas as well including fashion and television. Throughout their relationship divorce rumors followed the couple and they have both admitted that their marriage has been stressful. For instance, during their marriage it was revealed that Rossdale was also the father of model Daisy Lowe.

The couple has three children of their own. They are all boys and range in age from one to nine years. According to reports, Stefani and Rossdale have asked for joint child custody.

Divorce can be a painful and disruptive procedure. Any Minnesota resident who is going through the process may want to speak to a divorce lawyer in order to fully understand the issues involved in a divorce, such as alimony, child support and property division.
