Some New Jersey residents may be interested in the ups and downs of celebrities’ lives. In many cases, celebrity news revolves around recent divorce cases, and even short marriages are not immune to the spotlight. Nonetheless, these cases could provide valuable insight for individuals who may be considering separation proceedings of their own.

It was recently reported that former Saved By the Bell star Lark Voorhies filed for divorce. She and her husband Jimmy Green married only six months prior to the divorce filing. Reports stated that the couple met at an event and started dating soon afterward. They were reported to have said that they were happy to have found each other and were looking forward to the future of their relationship. However, the relationship apparently did not work out, as Voorhies filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

Voorhies’ mother was also mentioned in the report, and it was stated that she had filed a temporary restraining order against Green, although it was not mentioned why she took such action. It was noted that she continued to want her daughter to be happy. Voorhies and Green apparently separated in September.

Though New Jersey residents may be facing divorce in marriages that have lasted longer than six months, the circumstances surrounding celebrity divorces could allow them to gain an idea regarding certain aspects of divorce. However, each case is unique to the parties involved, and, therefore, individuals will likely want to assess their own states of affairs in order to make decisions that are best for them. Information on divorce proceedings may help concerned individuals move forward more confidently.
