"So, we're ditching the bicycle", the 53-year-old wrote on Instagram Wednesday, describing herself as "peacefully separated" from former Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, 74, for the past year. Last month, the whole family was together at Ocasek's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction which was held in Cleveland, Ohio. Paulina says they still do family outings together with their 2 adult sons, but "we are just no longer a couple". "When the four of us are together, we can go wherever the road takes us". Their substantial age difference (Ocasek is 21 years Porizkova's senior) and wide discrepancy in physical attractiveness (sorry, Ric) has stood as a point of great optimism for men everywhere. However, on the "bicycle" of their relationship, the spouses "no longer pedal in unison". Paulina explained that the couple chose to ditch "the bicycle", aka their marriage. The photos of our happy family are, in fact, happy family photos; we are just no longer a couple. "Expect to keep seeing happy family photos", explained Porizkova.

In a 2015 interview with Yahoo Beauty, Paulina Porizkova talked about the challenges of being in a high-profile marriage. "It's always challenging with two people with separate careers", she said.
