May-December Celebrity Divorces

On Nov. 17, 2011, after six years of marriage, celebrity couple Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher filed for divorce. The pair had made headlines when they first emerged as a couple, and very few of those headlines ran without pointing out the 16-year age difference between the two of them.

The age gap between Moore and Kutcher made their union a classic May-December romance, and the list of celebrities who have engaged in such unions is long. Almost as long, however, is the list of such couples who couldn’t keep their marriages together. Divorces lawyers have full coffers thanks to the dissolution of such May-December celebrity unions, particularly when there was no pre-nuptial agreement in place.
