They were together since high school. I sincerely doubt this was a trading up issue, more likely that they've just grown apart. People change A LOT from high school to mid 20s. What is amazing is that they stayed together this long.

It is interesting how we all (myself included) immediately see it as Russell dumping her before the big contract, or dumping her so he can play the field with lots of hot women. But I think he is a good, straight arrow- the rumors I have heard from several places are that his wife cheated on him. Who knows if that's true, but it at least reminds us not to pile on Russell and give him the benefit of the doubt.

I should have said "don't bother" because it is pathetic.

I think Wilson can do better than getting escorts.

Speaking from personal experience, the sad truth is that people divorce for a variety of reasons and not everyone who gets divorced wants to.

It takes two to make a marriage work but only one to end a marriage.

Truthfully, it's a private matter between the two of them and to a lesser extent, their family members and friends.

At least, they don't have any children that this divorce will affect.

This will be a very painful time for them and my heart goes out to both of them.

Really? People should be happy to end a non-working relationship.

It's his loss, someone else will marry this lady.

Not really. Whenever a friend or acquaintance that they are getting or are divorced my pat response is, "congratulations or my deepest condolences whichever is most appropriate." So far the responses are about 50/50.

As for Mr. Wilson, who knows if he is trading up, down or sideways. His wife could have turned into one of those NFL wives that you see on one of those reality shows. For all we know she could have seen a major league (no pun intended) paychecks way back in high school and has been riding that train until the poor boy woke up and smelled the coffee.

Either way it ain't none of my business one way or another.

Of course as my late sainted grandmother would have opined, "I wish he could have found a nice colored girl."

Wilson will be rewarded with a monster contract next season. I could see a GF since High School having issues over a prenup.

What's funny about that article is they call him a Super Bowl winning QB which puts him in the same boat as Trent Dilfer... both would qualify as an average QB that was carried to a championship by an out of this world defense.

You do realize that in addition to his Super Bowl victory (in which his performance was superior to Peyton Manning's), Russell Wilson has more victories than any other QB in their first two NFL seasons and the second most touchdowns of any QB in their first two NFL seasons?
