Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes reaches an amicable divorce settlement

The highly publicized divorce settlement of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes has been settled on Monday taking less than two weeks that ended the six year marriage of the star studded couple. Speculations doing rounds about the custody of their six years old daughter – Suri- reached a feverish pitch over the weekend but then the estranged couple rested the rumors by announcing about their amicable divorce settlement.

Reports emerge that Katie Holmes will have the sole custody of Suri and Tom will get substantial time to spend with his daughter. The divorce agreement also includes the details on how Tom and Katie are allowed to tell Suri regarding religion including Scientology. However, Suri will not be expected to attend a Scientology school, like Cruise’s adopted children Isabella – aged 19 and Conor- aged 17 did.

The couple along with their daughter has become a favorite idol of celebrity magazines and everything seemed going on a right track when Holmes filed for divorce in New York. Her move surprised the fans and even Tom Cruise who at that time was in Iceland shooting for a movie. There were speculations in the media that the couple had differences about raising their six years old daughter –Suri as a Scientologist but neither they nor their attorneys commented on that matter.

Tom Cruise married Katie Holmes in a glamorous wedding in an Italian castle in the month of November-2006 and their daughter – Suri was born about six months earlier. In the opinion of family law attorneys it is quite surprising that this divorce case has been settled in a speedy manner. In their view the present case has so many moving parts that do not routinely get resolved themselves in a matter of ten days and there are definitely one or two motivated people.

Katie Holmes marriage with Tom Cruise was her first one. Cruise had been already married twice before to actresses Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman with whom he adopted two children. However, both these marriages ended up in divorce. There was no direct comment from the divorced couple of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes but they just released a statement that they were really pleased to get what they wanted.
