Regina King Talks Making Peace with Ex-Husband

Bend Bulletin writes:

The birth of her son, Ian, changed everything. After 12 years together, she and her husband, Ian Alexander, divorced. “My parents didn’t have a really good divorce. I remember them at my sister’s graduation and my graduation, and they never spoke. I just remember how that felt.

“So we were at one of my son’s basketball games and (my ex) was on one side of the court, and I was on the other. And that feeling I had as a child came up inside me, and I took him to the side and said, ‘Look, we’re going to have to get over ourselves for Ian because this is no fault of his.’ My ex-husband’s parents are still married, so he had no idea what that feels like. I said, ‘It feels real crappy for him right now. And I know what that feels like. It does not feel good.’ He was like, ‘You’re right.’

“And at that moment we decided together to make it work. Now we’re great friends. We go to dinner together. He’s dating a really cool woman now.”

    She has more sense than most people. The child comes first. Always.

    Good for them. This was the mature thing to do. Even if the marriage doesn’t work, you have to do what’s best for your kids.
