    Guy Ritchie was wed to Madonna for eight years. The couple divorced in 2008 after having two sons –one biological and one adopted. Both have moved on to greener pastures. However, the director spoke to Details about the union, which he cherishes since they had Rocco, 11, and adopted David, 6.

    He said, "I enjoyed my first marriage. It's definitely not something I regret. The experience was ultimately very positive. I love the kids that came out of it, and I could see no other route to take. But you move on, don't you?"

    Despite the enjoyment, it was not without its moments. He also said, "I stepped into a soap opera, and I lived in it for quite a long time. I'll probably be more eloquent on it 10 years from now." He finished "When you end up with a lot of the things you set to out to chase and find that you've stumbled into all sorts of hollow victories, then you become deeply philosophical. I'm quite happy that that experience was accelerated for me. I'm glad I made money, in other words. And I'm glad I got married."
