After 19 years of marriage, Robin William's wife Marsha Garces Williams, filed for divorce on March 21, seeking to end her marriage to Williams on the grounds of irreconcilable differences.

The couple married soon after Williams' divorced his first wife, Valerie Velardi, to whom he had been married for 10 years. Williams met Garces met while she worked as their nanny and became his personal assistant.

Williams has done two publicly acknowledged stints in rehab: for drugs in the '80s and, after staying sober for 20 years, for alcohol in 2006.

I sure hope that he remains sober during this period. It's always sad to witness the demise of a funny man.
