Comedian Chris Rock filed for divorce from his wife in December, pointing out the prenuptial agreement that they had signed at the beginning of their marriage 18 years prior. The prenuptial agreement outlined that Rock’s wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, would be able to retain a career while married to the actor. She is now claiming this was not the case and is seeking a substantial portion of the $70 million of which Chris Rock is worth.
Compton-Rock alleges that she was forced to leave her work in public relations in order to care for their children– Lola Simone, 13, and Zahra Savannah, 11. She also stated that much of her free time is spent on charity work, specifically The Angel Rock Project that she and Rock began.
Recent developments in the divorce show that the prenuptial arrangement expired through the Sunset Clause which was recognized by both parties. As such, Compton-Rock is seeking payment “commensurate with the marital standard of living.”

According to a recent study, divorce occurs in nearly 79 percent of all marital separations. Factors such as children and the length of the separation are all taken into account when a divorce is being determined.
Separation seems to be more common then just going straight to divorce, especially in couple’s that have young children under the age of 5. Researchers did an analysis on 7, 272 individuals that were in between the ages of 14 and 22 and were married at some point.
Out of the individuals, 51 percent of the couples were still married. Out of the rest of the couples, 60 percent stated that they have been through some type of marital separation and 79 percent of this group stated that their separation resulted in a divorce. The average separation is four years if a couple divorces and if the couple reunites, the average number of years is two.
