Beyoncé's Parents Officially Divorce

It's officially over!
Beyoncé's parents Mathew and Tina Knowles have officially divorced, a year after their initial split was dismissed by the courts. Tina filed divorce from her daughter's then-manager and husband in 2009, weeks after he was accused of fathering a child outside the marriage.
The divorce case was dismissed last year after both parties failed to appear at a court hearing. However, a final decree of divorce was issued last month in Texas, so says TMZ.
In the divorce documents, Tina declared the marriage crumbled because of "discord or conflict of personalities" which "prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation."
It's not been a great year for Mr. Knowles. His daughter fires him and his wife divorces him.
Is marriage a doomed institution?
