Guy Ritchie Proves He's A Real English Gentleman

As news of the divorce settlement between Madonna and Guy Ritchie whips the media into a frenzy, something more profound appears in this story. Guy Ritchie proves himself as the true 'English Gentleman' because he didn't make the divorce about money, but about the children. Something so often looked over when celebrity couples go their separate ways.

The press have written volumes about Madonna's monetary value and how much they thought Guy would get or ask for in the much publicised divorce, and yet the British movie maker has maintained his integrity, even when the pressure was on. Divorce need not be about taking each other to the cleaners or demanding what is rightfully yours - sometimes it is about agreeing to go your separate ways amicably and peacefully. In this instance it appears Guy and Madonna have put the welfare of their children first, by agreeing they should spend equal time in the UK and US between both parents.

No divorce is ever without it's problems, but it is refreshing when two adults can put aside their differences and see the bigger picture. The same was true in the case of Billie Piper and Chris Evans, where the couple remained friends even after the divorce and Billie refused to divorce over money. While Madonna and Guy may not end up as close friends as Billie and Chris, at least they can hold their heads high, which is more than Heather Mills could do after her bitter divorce with Paul McCartney.
