For most of you it’s been known for a little while now, for some of you this will come as a nasty bit of a shock:
Petra and I are getting a divorce.
Before anyone gets wild ideas about lengthy court battles and endless custody hearings: we will have none of that. We are ending our marriage in mutual respect and friendship, and everything we do revolves around one person: our daughter Femke.
For the time being, the girls are going to stay with me in our house. Once the divorce is final Petra will set out to find a place the girls can live, and I will do everything in my power to help them and support them.
These things are never easy, on none of the persons involved, but I think we’ll manage.
