Frances Cobain loses father's guitar in divorce

While there might only be a few reasons to get married, there are a wide variety of reasons to end a marriage. What it boils down to is that the relationship can no longer work, and the spouses are better apart than together. Divorce can be a very emotional and challenging time, but it is necessary to work through some important and sensitive issues to complete the process. In some cases, this means letting go of things that are very important to one spouse.

According to recent reports, Frances Bean Cobain finalized her divorce with Isaiah Silva. The 25-year-old daughter of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain married Silva in 2014 and filed for divorce in 2016.

Property division was an important issue for this couple, as an extremely valuable guitar was at issue. The guitar in question was the iconic Martin guitar that Kurt Cobain played during his MTV unplugged performance in November 1993. He died the following April. Silva argued that Frances gave him the guitar as a gift; however, she denies ever giving it to him. Nonetheless, Silva was able to walk away from the marriage with this guitar that is reportedly worth millions.

Divorce can be a messy time, causing major disputes over property that holds much value. Walking away from a marriage while losing something that holds much value to you could be devastating. Thus, it is important to take time to understand your rights and how to ensure they are protected throughout the divorce process.
