(Newser) – Dennis Quaid is facing his third failed marriage, and this unraveling sounds a little nasty, with the couple having been ordered not to say anything "vulgar, profane, obscene, or indecent" to the other. Kimberly Buffington-Quaid was the one to file for divorce, TMZ reports, and her petition cites "discord or conflict of personalities" making the marriage "insupportable." The couple, married since 2004, have four-year-old twins who nearly died due to an accidental drug overdose shortly after their birth.

A temporary custody order gives both Dennis and Kimberly time with the children and bars either parent from taking the kids out of state or out of school. The temporary order also divvies up residences (Kimberly gets the main home, Dennis gets the condo) and cars (Kimberly drives the Mercedes, Dennis drives the Cadillac Escalade). In a somewhat amusing inclusion, the order notes, "The parties shall cooperate with one another in using the Range Rover." Dennis wants Kimberly to walk away with nothing, but, of course, she is asking for the community assets to be divvied up fairly. (Read more Dennis Quaid stories.)
