Whatever went wrong, the couple never got to say.
However, their 13-year union produced three children (a son and two daughters). Justin was born 986, Rainey 1990, and Sarah Margaret Qualley came in 1994.

The younger daughter – Margaret once revealed in an interview that her parents’ laidback way of parenting had a negative effect on her initially but it has today, helped her follow her own path.
The quite outspoken Margaret also admitted that her mom’s choice of men sometimes shocked her, she said she was hoping her parents would get back together after their divorce in 1999 but that her mom’s choice of Dennis Quaid at the time actually left her stunned.
The young actress has starred in a number of countless movies like The Leftovers, Death Note, The Nice Guys, IO, Strange but True, Donnybrook, etc.

She also appeared in Falcon Song and was also Miss Golden Globe in 2012. However, she is popular as a country singer. Her hit singles are Turn Me On Like The Radio and Me and Johnny Cash.
Rainey said that she has always wanted to make music and to act and that having family members who are in similar fields have helped her a lot as they all help each other out as well as inspire one another.
