A Not-So-Happy 13th Anniversary

David Arquette's divorce documents were officially filed just one day after the actor became a man in a bar mitzvah ceremony. Coincidence it also happens to be exactly 13 years to the day since he married Courteney Cox, or not?

David Arquette's divorce decision comes just one day after "finally" becoming a man in a bar mitzvah ceremony. Coincidentally, or perhaps not so, the filing of papers also falls on his 13th wedding anniversary with Courteney Cox.

David Arquette, seen here with his and Courteney Cox's daughter Coco, filed divorce documents Tuesday. The 40-year-old cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split, and asked for joint legal and physical custody.

Us Weekly reports the actor is not requesting spousal or child support, and no mention was made of how he and Courteney Cox's shared properties will be divided. The Scream 4 star, who has been filming the new travel show Mile High abroad as of late, does not have a lawyer and will be representing himself through the divorce process.

Fans of the acting pair are likely not shocked to hear the couple, estranged since 2010, have decided to legally part ways. However, timing is not turning out to be David Arquette's strong suit. Not only did he file on their anniversary date, but tomorrow, June 13, is Coco's eighth birthday.

Announcing their separation in 2010, the couple released a statement that read in part, "The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage. We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go through this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together."

Should Courteney Cox be insulted David Arquette filed for divorce on their anniversary?

They have been separated for some time and they both knew this was coming, but I do find it very insulting to officially file for divorce on your anniversary. I just think it is in really poor taste. It could have been done any other day, this seems like a big week for him anyways, that it should have been done in a more tactful way.
