The couple's divorce was finalized on March 1, 2016, 4 years after they filed for the divorce. Well, the reason for their separation is not exposed, but Debra did speak about herself in an interview with Ladies Home Journal after her split. She said:

Twenty years. It’s a very long time. I think the institute of marriage is a noble thing. I think the idea of a partner for life is incredibly romantic. But now we’re living to 100. A hundred years ago people were dying at age 37. Till death do us part was a much different deal.

Debra further added:

It’s a new chapter in my personal life. I’m walking a path I’ve never walked before. But I’m optimisticI know myself better than I ever have before. I feel more attractive now than I have in a long time. I feel healthier and stronger.

Really it's hard to recover from the loss of love. But Debra seems to have managed that too as she currently lives happily with her son shared with Daniel.
