    Look at the bright side…at least they’re still a family and civil to one another. Whatever makes them happy is all that matters, even if separately. Best of luck!

    Well said, Joe. I wish all parents could take a play from their book.

    So sad, they have been married since she was on Guiding Light. Love to the family.


  14. Robin says:

    Sorry to hear this. I never saw this coming. So many people are getting divorced lately.


  15. Mo says:

    She seems like she has a positive attitude, so that’s good.


  16. Timmm says:

    WOW, she seems like such an amazing women. I hope they just ran out of gas and no one cheated! 20 years, how could they walkaway? The kids? Sad.


  17. dmr says:

    Oh, that’s so sad. Someone on social media asked Laura a while back about this, because she had not posted any recent photos of John (I felt badly that a complete stranger asked her such a personal question-on social media, too). Twenty years, by today’s standards, is a lifelong marriage. Oh, so sad, though.


  18. Lisa Faw says:

    You are awesome Laura. Loved you on Loving and Love you on General Hospital. Best Wishes. x0x0


  19. Shell says:

    Prayers and well wishes to them and their family.


  20. Janet G says:

    I’m sure it was a difficult decision for you to make. I admire you for making the right choice for your entire family. Getting along is the best way. You are an amazing person.


  21. Barbra says:

    Laura, We all know that divorce is not easy but your strength and courage will get you threw.


  22. Elizabeth says:

    Good luck to them both. They were an attractive couple.


  23. penny says:

    So sad, first it was Aisha Tyler now Laura. What’s going on with these 20 year marriages ending? After 20 years you would think the “until death do us part” was a done deal. Oh well, I hope they all find love again.


  24. Jane says:

    Another marriage ending.


  25. Sam says:

    Well I always say: men and women usually get divorced in their 40′s. Hollywood women over 50 are usually single because they are considered “way too old” in Hollywood lingo so they are SOL. It’s unfortunate – but men thrive in their 50′s because they’ve become ‘distinguished’ and we accept their wrinkle or two and maybe a roll or two……Men see a woman with one wrinkle and he runs as fast as he can. It’s reality.
