Actress Melissa Gilbert and her husband Bruce Boxleitner announced today that after 16 years of marriage, they have decided to part ways.
Melissa and Bruce share one son together, Michael, 15. Melissa also has an adult son, Dakota, 21, from her previous marriage. Bruce has two adult sons from a previous relationship.
They released a joint statement requesting privacy:
“We have loved each other for a very long time and we share four incredible sons together. On behalf of our family we ask to be allowed our privacy during this very difficult time.”
It’s so sad to see such a long marriage fall apart.
