"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time," the couple said. "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter." The two enjoyed each others company during Game 1 of the World Series in Boston, Oct. 23, 2004. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)
