Sixty-eight-year-old Daryl Hall, co-founder and lead vocalist of the classic band Hall & Oates, is divorcing with his wife of six years, Amanda Aspinall. Aspinall is the daughter of British gambling mogul John Aspinall, according to a Radar Online report.
The divorce petition, which was filed by Aspinall on Monday, August 10 in a Connecticut court, was not contested by Hall. Aspinall, who married Hall in 2009, noted on her divorce documents that their marriage had “irretrievably broken down”. Both are asking that the prenup in which the couple agreed to prior to their marriage be fully reviewed.
Hall was first married to Bryna Lublin between 1969 and 1972. He was then involved in a 30-year relationship with songwriter Sara Allen.
If you have recently gone through a divorce, one thing that you must prioritize is the welfare of your children. There are a few steps that you can take in order to help guide your children to a more healthy emotional place following the break up.
Tell your children your true feelings regarding the divorce. If you are sad about it, don’t be afraid to share your feelings with them; this can validate their own feelings of unhappiness and teach them that it’s okay to feel bad about a situation that calls for negative feelings. Also, tell them of any changes that may happen in their lives because of the divorce. However, try not to bad-mouth your ex-spouse to your children. There is nothing to be gained from tarnishing his/her reputation with the children but more pain, anger, and resentment. Additionally, make sure to give them extra love in this emotionally trying time.
