Cuba Gooding Jr. is an American actor who is known for his roles in Jerry Maguire, A Few Good Men and Pearl Harbor among other films. He is married to Sara Kapfer and has now filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sara Kapfer have been together for a very long time. The two were college sweethearts and got married in 1994. They have three children together, with the youngest being 11 years old. The two separated in 204 when Kapfer filed for legal separation. Despite being separated, they tried to work it out and Gooding was even quoted on a show saying that they still go on dates and that they were trying to make things work. Unfortunately, this does not seem to have borne fruit as Gooding filed for divorce in 2017. In his papers, he also files for legal and physical joint custody of their youngest child as the other two are adults. Gooding also states that he is willing to provide spousal support to Kapfer. However, he requests that all the earnings he has made after their separation should not factor in and that those are his to keep.

Gooding and Kapfer have had a pretty private relationship which makes it hard to pinpoint what the problem or the irreconcilable differences may be. Theirs does not seem like it will be a messy divorce since they have been together for a while now, have children together and would like to protect them as well.
