Adele has filed for divorce from her husband Simon Konecki, following their separation in April. The filing was made in California, where she and Konecki have had a home since 2016, the year they married.
When separating, a statement read that the pair are “committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy.” Their child, Angelo, was born in 2012.
Divorce, also known as dissolution of marriage, is the process of terminating a marriage or marital union. Divorce usually entails the canceling or reorganizing of the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage, thus dissolving the bonds of matrimony between a married couple under the rule of law of the particular country or state. Divorce laws vary considerably around the world, but in most countries divorce requires the sanction of a court or other authority in a legal process, which may involve issues of distribution of property, child custody, alimony (spousal support), child visitation / access, parenting time, child support, and division of debt. In most countries, monogamy is required by law, so divorce allows each former partner to marry another person.
Divorce is different from annulment, which declares the marriage null and void, with legal separation or de jure separation (a legal process by which a married couple may formalize a de facto separation while remaining legally married) or with de facto separation (a process where the spouses informally stop cohabiting). Reasons for divorce vary, from sexual incompatibility or lack of independence for one or both spouses to a personality clash.The only countries that do not allow divorce are the Philippines, the Vatican City and the British Crown Dependency of Sark. In the Philippines, divorce for non-Muslim Filipinos is not legal unless the husband or wife is an alien and satisfies certain conditions. The Vatican City is an ecclesiastical state, which has no procedure for divorce. Countries that have relatively recently legalized divorce are Italy (1970), Portugal (1975), Brazil (1977), Spain (1981), Argentina (1987), Paraguay (1991), Colombia (1991*), Andorra (1995), Ireland (1996), Chile (2004) and Malta (2011).

Following is a 1998 British neo-noir crime thriller film written and directed by Christopher Nolan. It tells the story of a young man who follows strangers around the streets of London and is drawn into a criminal underworld when he fails to keep his distance.
As Christopher Nolan’s debut feature, it was designed to be as inexpensive as possible to make. Scenes were heavily rehearsed so that just one or two takes were needed to economise on 16mm film stock, the production’s greatest expense, and for which Nolan was paying from his salary. Unable to afford expensive professional lighting equipment, Nolan mostly used available light. Along with writing, directing, and photographing the film, Nolan also helped in editing and production.
Following was released by The Criterion Collection on both Blu-ray and DVD in North America on 11 December 2012.
The British singer has not directly commented on the split since, though did make reference to it in an Instagram post where she posted a meme of herself, featuring a tearful picture alongside a triumphant pose with the caption: “When you catch yourself in your feelings then you remember who you are.” In another post for her 31st birthday she wrote: “30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all.”
That post suggested that her new album would be called 30, following the albums 19, 21, and 25. The latter, released in 2015, became the fastest-selling album of all time in the UK, and was the highest selling album in the world that year.
