Hollywood Split

They broke up
Irreconcilable differences
After twenty years together
No further comments will be made
Some admired them for the length of their relationship
Even though they never wed.

She said of him
He’s a guy’s guy.
I won’t marry because  
I am too afraid of taking him for granted
Or him taking me for granted
Our children and our property bind us 
I can’t say it’s always been comfortable
But we are really good friends.

He said 
Our conversations were honest
Heated sometimes
But we always got along
The lawyers are working it out
There are issues that need to be straightened out
Mostly financial stuff
Like alimony and child care
But we’re still friends
