Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher: A Portrait of a Marriage & a Family Torn Apart (Photos)

It's over.

Another Hollywood marriage has ended, but this one, it came as no surprise. On Thursday Demi Moore announced that she was going to finally divorce Ashton Kutcher.

Once upon a time,  the duo were seen as a glamorous, gorgeous, successful, twitter happy pair. A couple made that made women (especially self-proclaimed cougars) jealous and men (who always had a thing for G.I. Jane) give a great big thumbs up.  But even all the fame and fortune could not keep this family together, and perhaps it played a piece in tearing them apart. Hollywood is hard on any marriage.

Demi and Ashton were married for six years. Ashton was an active stepfather and had a close relationship with his step daughters, Rumor, Tallulah and Scout.  This is the third divorce for Demi. Her first married to singer Freddy Moore lasted from 1980 to 1984, she was then with Bruce Willis from 1987 to 2000.  After dating Ashton Kutcher who happens to be 16 years younger than Demi for two years the two wed in 2005.  But after eight years together they’ve called it quits.  The saddest thing is not for Demi’s ego or Ashton’s reputation, but for Demi’s three kids.  The three had a close relationship with Ashton and he was there for some very formative years. Hopefully even after the papers are signed and all the boxes are moved out, both sides can still get along in some way.

To pay homage to the family in happier times, check out this slide show of Demi, Ashton and the girls.
