There are many ways to pursue a divorce, from negotiating in alternative dispute resolution or taking matters to court. Regardless of the process individuals choose, many people believe there is still only one kind of divorce–an absolute divorce that legally ends a marriage.
Spouses who choose to mediate their divorce usually agree to compromise and negotiate throughout the process. However, not even the couples who pursue mediation agree to divorce right away.
The Hollywood couple Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman have been separated for nearly two years now. However, Perlman reports that she will never divorce DeVito. She told the New York Post and People that the couple still loves each other, remains close and agrees on essential things. Therefore, the couple states that they will not pursue a divorce.
