Cox and Arquette divorce finalized

In a final judgment entered by a Superior Court Judge in Los Angeles County, the divorce of Courteney Cox and her estranged husband David Arquette was finalized on May 28.

The Cox and Arquette divorce was finally completed nearly three years after they announced their break up in October 2010. They were married for 12 years before Arquette officially filed for a divorce in June 2012. According to their divorce documents, the estranged couple seeks legal and physical custody of Coco, their 8-year-old daughter.

Cox and Arquette first met in 1996 on the set of the movie “Scream.”

Shooting between agents at the California Immigration and Customs Enforcement office

Last Thursday evening, a California Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer, Ezequiel Garcia, shot Kevin Kozak, his superior officer, six times.

The shooting was said to be incited from an argument during Garcia’s performance counseling.  Fortunately, Kozak is in stable condition.  Garcia was shot and killed by a third officer nearby.  It was stated by Garcia’s wife that they were considering divorce after 14 years of marriage.  She believes that Garcia’s actions could be related to the pending divorce.

“We are doing everything humanly possible to understand why it happened and ensure it will not happen again,” said Special Agent in Charge, Claude Arnold.

Survey suggests welfare increases chances of divorce

A survey of 295 married couples suggests that receiving welfare and other forms of government assistance, like food stamps and Medicaid, increases marital dissatisfaction.

A research professor at the University of Missouri authored the study which asked couples about their happiness with their marriage.  Among couples receiving less than $20,000 in annual income, couples receiving government assistance were much more likely to respond that they were dissatisfied with their marriage.

The professor acknowledged that finances are widely known to cause disagreement and dissatisfaction within a marriage.  However, he said he was surprised to see that welfare dramatically increased the chances of marital satisfaction in couples in the same income bracket.
