This is how celebrities should divorce.
Deschanel and Gibbard are, apparently, friendly with one another, not willing to stay married, and are looking for a way to get this part of their lives behind them. Was this just something that dissolved on its own or did being cute and having floppy hair intersect at the right time for a brief, shining moment of glory?
I always come down on the side of privacy. Nobody's entitled to know. But, I do think it is notable when two people who have public lives can handle their affairs with dignity.
