On Tuesday, Sparks, the wordsmith behind The Notebook and A Walk To Remember, announced that he and wife Cathy are divorcing after 25 years of marriage.
“This is, of course, not a decision we’ve made lightly,” Sparks told People. “We remain close friends with deep respect for each other and love for our children. For our children’s sake, we regard this as a private matter.”
