It's finally official.
Nearly two years after announcing their split, David Arquette and Courteney Cox are divorcing.
The couple, who married in June 1999, first announced their split in October 2010. At the time, they issued a joint statement that said: "The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage."
The pair have reportedly maintained a friendship post-split and even co-executive produce the TV comedy "Cougar Town," in which Cox stars.
While their split has been amicable, Cox and Arquette never expected their relationship to end this way; Cox told the Daily Mail in December 2009 that divorce wasn't "really an option".
They aren't the only couple to publicly swear off divorce. Here are six more -- and some who also split anyway.
