Mark Steins and long time wife Leanza Cornett, who is also a former Miss America, announced that they will be separating after seventeen years of being married. The pair are currently working on their divorce proceedings. However, the announced divorce seems to be taking a lot more time than either of them expected. Mark has even complained that the divorce has turned out to be an exceptionally heavy financial burden for him.
The couple are apparently trying to keep things as upbeat and positive as possible for their Kids. They have two kids out of their seventeen year marriage, both sons – Kai Harper who has just turned 13 this year and his younger brother Avery James who turned 12. The couples are working hand in hand so that their kids aren’t pressured by the transition that is happening in their lives.
Mark has been spending as much time as he can with his kids, taking them to work, to the movies and lunches to theme parks. Steins is doing everything possible so the kids can get through his transition in their life as effortlessly as possible. He has said he wants his children to get through their parent separation “unscathed”.
The couple have promised to bring their son’s interest above all during this transition phase. The couple has expressed concerns over privacy and upcoming child custody negotiations. They have not yet revealed as to whether they will be seeking joint custody, though they have expressed by their behavior that it will most probably be co-parenting.
It is also not clear whether they will be seeking a litigation based divorce or mediation based approach to their divorce. Mark has expressed concerns over the proceedings while Leanza continues to not comment on the matter.
The divorce, which seems to be dragging longer than usual, has left both couples to wander about without their rings .Although there have been no reports of either of them seeing anybody new. They have confirmed that while the divorce last they will be directing all of their attention to their children and not anywhere else.
