Robert and Grace tied the knot in 1997 after dating for over a decade. They have 2 children together, 20-year-old son Elliot and 6-year-old daughter Helen.

Robert and Grace have been down this road before … Robert filed for divorce in 1999, two years into their union, but they never went all the way through with it.

  1. 20 year is not a joke oooo,why now,which example are both of you showing your children. It is very unfair to both of you.

  2. 20 years of marriage and now quitting I don’t think he is normal they should go and settle for themselves I know that marriage is not a force is not do or die affair but even at that you people should have find out early.

  3. These whites and their way of life still baffles me alot….especially celebrities what do they stand to gain

  4. This white people are really funny. 20 yrs in marriage and you are separating? May God help you. Even though the man has other children already before he married her, that doesn’t call for a divorce. Iam sure she knows about it before they got married.

  5. After twenty years of being together with two kids you two separated, at your old age you should be living a life of emulation and not this kind of life. You two didn’t think about your kids before taking such decision, this will affect your kids so much.

  6. How can they divorce after 20years of marriage, they should have understood themselves better at such age

  7. What is this man problem? Married to different women yet don’t want to spend his life with any of them.

  8. They will still come back together. This isn’t the first time they are calling off their marriage and came back together so I await their reunion.

  9. 20 years of marriage and now quitting I don’t think he is normal they should go and settle for themselves I know that marriage is not a force is not do or die affair but even at that you people should have find out early..

  10. They have both stick together for long they should have known how to manage their difference, white with their way of breakup and making up at times is tiring,well if its not working betwen them they should go their separate ways

  11. After 20 years of been together what’s the point of divorce, the most important thing in a relationship is understanding

  12. Since they decides to end the marriage of 20 years, are they both still going to remarry at their age or remain single for ever

  13. Well this is not surprising, going by REPORT De Niro has gone through two marriages before and he want out now. Possibly he is going through middle or old age crisis.

  14. I don’t envy them right from time, they always have issues, this is not the first time, they can still come back

  15. Its not new and it’s npy a heart breaking thing for them.it’s a culture.they should go ahead for all I care.

  16. One gives 20years of his/her life and then come back with a quit stuff wait quit as in separation hmmmmm with those children, what is it they can’t let go and just keep enjoying their life

  17. Na waa oo…So couples can get seperated even after this long in marriage?..But there is reason behind it shaa

  18. in marriage you don’t need to rejoice too much because you don’t know what can happen at anytime. 27 years was just Separate suddenly.

  19. in marriage you don’t need to rejoice too much because you don’t know what can happen at anytime. 20 years was just Separate suddenly.

  20. Lol this is but funny and stupid….why will they separate at their old age….lol in Nigeria that age they are grand parents…let them get there acts together…its late to celebrate

  21. After so many years of marriage and there was no particular reason for split . I think white people are just being over social and they practice blind civilization

  22. why now,which example are both of you showing your children. It is very unfair to both of you.no matter d situation u are not suppose to leave each other

  23. 20 yrs in marriage and you are separating? May God help you. Even though the man has other children already before he got married

  24. They should try and work things out. They’ve almost split a number of times but it didn’t happen. It might still not happen if they talk to each other and try to compromise.
