I suppose when it comes to marriage these days, you can never really say.

I’m the only person I know whose parents divorced and then got back together – like 10 years later. When I tell this to other people with divorced parents, it’s hard to fathom. Because by then, you can’t imagine your parents any other way but apart anymore.

Lately though, at least with respect to parent pimps in Hollywood, it seems to be occurring with more frequency. Ok so maybe that’s not a good example of how it works in real life. But just in case you hadn’t heard, Britney Spears’s parents reunited, and, most recently, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus.

Now it appears Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz may be giving it another shot. They filed for divorce last month but yesterday, on a family coffee run with their son Bronx, the two were clearly holding hands, knowingly being photographed, several pap agencies present. And at one point they also had their arms around each other.

Needless to say, the two want us to know they’re trying to work it out. It’s none of my goddamn business but that works for me. I don’t mean to get on my soapbox or anything but sometimes it feels too easy. With the separate bank accounts and the separate everythings these days, especially in Hollywood, it’s as simple as saying – ok, can you move out, and then they move out, and someone gets the couch and the silverware and, really, it’s not that messy…

I’m not saying that’s how it is ALL the time, I’m just saying it’s becoming like this more of the time. So if these two, still so young, want to exhaust every effort, I’m willing to put the snark away for the occasion sure even, um, if this looks like a photo shoot.
