After months of separation and reconciliation, Dennis Quaid and his wife, Kimberly, finally call it quits.

The actor ends his third marriage

Even though the weekend has been filled with the weddings of Mario Lopez and Courtney and Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert and J.P., it looks like it is the end of the road for Dennis Quaid and his former real estate agent wife, Kimberly Buffington.

The couple have bounced back and forth between separation and reconciliation since last March, when Kimberly initially filed for divorce. The divorce was put on hold in April as they attempted to work out their differences.

Unfortunately, that reconciliation was short-lived — she filed for legal separation again in October, and Quaid finally filed for divorce on Friday.

The couple married in 2004 on the Fourth of July, with Quaid's son from his second marriage, Jack, standing in as his best man. In 2008, the couple had a set of twins, daughter Zoe Grace and son Thomas Boone.

According to People, Dennis is offering to pay spousal support is seeking joint physical and legal custody of the children.

The Playing for Keeps actor has now racked up three divorces, counting his impending split from Kimberly. He was married to actress P.J. Soles for five years back in the '80s and to When Harry Met Sally star Meg Ryan, whom he divorced in 2001.

In 2005, the actor told USA Weekend, "The secret is keeping intimacy. It's tough to do. My wife is not in the business, so she can come with me [to movie locations]. This is going to be the marriage that works."
