Earlier this summer, a deeply disturbing report came out about Gina Kirschenheiter's husband allegedly attacking her and threatening her life.
Since then, they have been to court.
A judge has extended Gina's restraining order and agreed to the end of their marriage, but they'll still technically be married for months.
For a woman who spent so much time last year boasting to Shannon Beador about her easy divorce, Gina's split has taken a nasty turn.
In June, she alleged that Matt had shown up at her house late at night and then broken in and attacked her.
She accuses her ex of having pushed her down, of having struck her.
Gina at one point fled the house to seek help from a neighbor, but says that Matt dragged her back to the house.
Someone dialed 911 and police arrived, but not before Matt had allegedly threatened Gina's life repeatedly.
Absolutely bone-chilling stuff.
Now, RadarOnline reports that a judge has granted Gina and Matt's "dissolution of marriage."
It seems that, despite the June nightmare, the two were able to come together to address some major aspects of their divorce.
However, there is a lot of paperwork remaining, pertaining to "matters of joint property and other issues."
For that reason, Gina and Matt will remain "married," technically speaking, until December 31, 2019.
The court hopes that they will be able to complete that paperwork before then.
On January 1, Gina will be single and presumably ready to mingle.
It seems clear that both Gina and Matt were ready and eager for the marriage to end.
The issues that they resolved included division of properties, spousal support, child support, and other financial matters.
Things at the Wednesday, August 14 hearing became heated as Matt was asked some very direct questions.
Matt agreed that the reasons for their divorce were "irreconcilable differences."
He also conceded that he would not get back with Gina if suddenly presented with the opportunity to do so.
The most important part of many divorces is determining custody of any children.
It seems that Gina and Matt were able to reach an accord on that topic.
But knowing that they agreed in court is not the same thing as knowing the details of their custody arrangement.
Speaking of Gina's children, don't expect to see her changing her name any time soon.
As she explained to the judge, she wants to keep the same last name as her children.
A lot of divorced moms make that same difficult choice.
Then comes the matter of Gina's physical safety.
Fortunately, it seems to be something that the court is taking seriously.
Gina already had a temporary restraining order in place.
The court has extended that protective order through next year, to January 15 of 2020.
That is the date on which both parties will return to court, fully divorced, to discuss the domestic violence charges against Matt.
Eyewitnesses say that Gina and Matt refused to look at each other while in court.
However, as she left the court, Gina is said to have looked emotionally devastated.
In contrast, Matt apparently looked relieved.
We can only speculate as to what they were thinking and feeling at that time, of course.
Perhaps, when we know which property was assigned to whom, we'll be better able to explain why Gina was so unhappy.
