The Rock Talks About How to Have a Successful Divorce (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 1st 2011 4:30AM
The Rock on 'Piers Morgan Tonight'Three years ago, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson divorced his wife of 11-years Dany Johnson, who was also his manager. She remains his manager to this day, and Johnson told 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN) about how he was able to go through a rough divorce and then come out with a great, loving relationship with his ex-wife.

"There's a period when we went through a lot of sludge," Johnson explained to Morgan. "I was very fortunate that I had her, who had the wherewithal to say 'Okay, we're going to go through this and it's terrible, but there's somewhere on the other side, if we come out of this, that we're going to become better'."

"It's so incredibly loving and seamless what we have," Johnson said of his relationship with his ex-wife. "And the best part about it, is the example we're setting for our little girl."

Everyone on this form is full of ****. Adults who aren't insecure can break up when the the marriage isn't going well. That's whats wrong with people, getting all crazy and hating someone you divorce when you have kids. Maybe you should read his book when he was a wrestler before he became a Hollywood star. The Rock and his ex wife have a bond as best friends, they have a bond that would be hard to break. She made him who he is now, thats why he keeps her as his manager, the women is great with money. He wouldn't have never pursued a career in wrestling if his ex didn't push him. And if you did research you'd know she makes more money then him overall. She owns her own financial marketing firm in Miami and has invested in a Latin Doll line worth millions. She don't need his money, she always made more than him. She supported him when he was trying to become a wrestler and he was broke. But to be honest she is a strong women with a tough business sense, that why Dwayne was attracted to her. If there was problems they most likely wanted the divorce for the better before it got to that "I hate you" moment in the marriage. Yet in the end he was 18 and she was only 22 when they got together, they were young and people change over time. Maybe other parents can take example and stop muffing up their kids in stupid fighting after a divorce. You all are a negative bunch, don't be a hater cause your ex can't stand you.

no such thing as a successful divorce only an amicable one, she makes money off of him and he makes money through her so they continue to work together. If there is love and good feelings why get a divorce? Unless one of them decided they were gay, they should still be married... He can find someone younger, more submissive or whatever but a good partner who is with you through ups and downs is hard to find

No divorce is a success...some are just handled better than others. I had one many years ago...it was amicable and not bitter...but I could never have considered any divorce anything but a failure...perhaps a necessary failure, but not a success under any circumstances...everything now is disposable...even marriages.

Could a marriage not be considered a failure at an independent existence? Marriage is no longer considered a prerequisite for reproduction, so the impetus for marriage is primarily emotional or financial support, indicating that people get marriage because they can't make it on their own.

No matter how "successful" you think a divorce may be, it's still a failed marriage and a broken family.

I was about to say the same thing: No divorce is successful. It means that the vows, promise, covenant you made of "as long as you both shall live" when you got married are now broken.
