That it lasted this long? Yes...
I'm actually really surprised. Katie Holmes's career the past 6+ years has been "Mrs Tom Cruise" and "Mom of MegaKidStar Suri" - and it seemed that way by her choice.
Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry
And just last week Tom was in PEOPLE magazine talking about how happy they were! This is becoming an extremely reliable indicator of which couples are about to split up.
But the rumours about what was in the pre-nup are true, maybe she has reached the end of her contract and didn't want to re-sign

A question. How many weeks until this thread drops to page three and I can sort through it and make a poll out of the meanest comments left about the collapse of a family's happiness?
"When I was poor and I complained about inequality people said I was bitter, now I'm rich and I complain about inequality they say I'm a hypocrite. I'm beginning to think they just don't want inequality on the agenda because it is a real problem that needs to be addressed." - Russell Brand
Maybe Katie's pissed she didn't get an Oscar nomination yet as part of the marriage agreement.
Her five year contract was up.
They never really struck me as happy, PeterG... From my completely outside perspective of course.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Nothing good comes out of Glen Ridge, NJ.

The real question is...how soon will they have him linked up with some other celebrity actress?
It was pretty much a foregone conclusion once they hit five years that they were going to split up since her five year contract expired. It's not being happy for the disintegration of a loving couple. This played out exactly as just about everyone expected. Just about every blind item came to pass, so it was obvious that someone inside that camp (perhaps Katie herself?) was getting the word out. When I read that quote from Tom last week about being so happy with Katie, I knew it was a matter of time, because he said the exact same thing a week before he filed for divorce from Mimi Rogers. What a phony. I just hope Katie gets custody of Suri, which might not be in her contract.

I think that would seriously cut down on the divorce rate. People would know that they are locked into that contract for however long they signed it for and that if they try to opt out or violate it, there are very steep penalties. Maybe people would think a bit more before swearing fidelity and loyalty to someone for their entire life and then deciding they want out after a few months or years.
The social construct of marriage is antiquated IMO. There's no sanctity to it anymore. People marry and divorce as frequently as they change their mind. Don't get me wrong; I know there are people who marry and stay happily married for their entire lives. It's a rare and beautiful thing...but you hear waaaay more about unhappy, miserable marriages and divorce than you hear about happy, fulfilling and blissful marriages.
