On their 13th wedding anniversary, David Arquette filed for divorce from Courteney Cox. The couple separated back in October of 2010, saying that they needed to take this time to better understand themselves and the qualities they need in a partner. David made it clear that he wanted to work on their marriage but Courteney thought they were better off apart. They agreed to remain ‘best friends’ and raise their now 8-year old daughter Coco together.

David had signed the papers a few months ago but finally filed yesterday, citing irreconcilable differences. I guess he was still holding out on hope that Courteney would change her mind.  He isn’t asking for any spousal support but wants joint custody of Coco.
