Mary Kennedy, Robert's estranged wife, was arrested for drunk driving shortly after the divorce was filed. Robert was not present at her arraignment.
The couple has four children ranging in age from 16 to 9. Their children's names are John, Kyra, William, and Aidan. Their ages are 16, 15, 13, and 9.
Like most Kennedy's Robert F Kennedy is successful. He's a prominent attorney and was the nephew of JFK and the late Edward "Teddy" Kennedy. His parents are Ethel and Robert Kennedy.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr wasn't always successful. In 1983 he plead guilty to possession of heroin. He straightened his life up.
There's no reason given for the divorce, although many people are very interested in the divorce filing coming only days before the drunk driving charge. Could Mary have had an alcohol problem? Or is this just another example of how people grow apart over the years?
