Reynolds and Johansson, Another Celeb Couple With No Prenup

On the same day that Maria Shriver filed divorced papers to divorce Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Los Angeles court officially dissolved the marriage of Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson, who had announced their separation in December 2010. Further details on the effect that a divorce has on a spouse’s property and assets are available from a Houston divorce attorney.

The date of court activity is not the only similarity that the two couples have in common. Like Shriver and Schwarzenegger, Reynolds and Johansson did not have a prenuptial agreement in place. As a result, a community property state like California will divide 50/50 all the earnings and property that the two acquired during their marriage. Both starred in hit movies during their marriage, with Reynolds appearing in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “Green Lantern” and Johansson starring in “He’s Just Not That Into You” and “Iron Man 2.”

Representing Reynolds is famed Hollywood divorce attorney Laura Wasser, also known as the disso queen. Wasser represents Maria Shriver in her divorce from Schwarzenegger. Whereas Shriver requested alimony, neither Reynolds nor Johansson is requesting alimony in their separation. Reynolds and Johansson began dating in 2007. They became engaged in May 2008 and married several months later in September in a remote Vancouver, Canada location. The union lasted until this past December.
