Houston native Dennis Quaid in midst of 3rd divorce

He might be known as a man of Hollywood due to his successful movie career, but actor and later hospital safety activist is a son of Houston. He has lived in Texas with his third wife, who is now about to become his third ex-wife.

Sources report that Dennis' wife Kimberly Buffington-Quaid recently filed for divorce in Texas. She and Dennis have been married for seven years. Perhaps this divorce is the result of the so-called "seven year itch." The exact reasons behind a couple's divorce are never fully understood by the public, besides the official reason that needs to be selected on the divorce papers.

In this celebrity case, Kimberly has indicated that the reason for the dissolution of their marriage is that the union has "become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities." That's a little bit more detailed than the common "irreparable differences" motivation. And certainly, a lot of couples out there can relate to becoming unhappy in a marriage because of conflicting personalities.

Dennis and Kimberly have twins together, as many in the public know due to an ordeal that the family went through after the children's birth when twins were given a nearly lethal dose of blood thinner. The Quaids ultimately sued the hospital where their babies were born and won a monetary settlement.

Determining a child custody arrangement will be necessary, though it sounds like the process might be an uncontested, amicable one. A PR source indicates that the couple is working together to come to agreements regarding child custody, spousal support and alimony. One would think that the couple has a prenuptial agreement, especially given that this wasn't Dennis' first time at the altar.

We will continue to follow this Texas divorce and post updates when appropriate.
