It was said that Matt gave more priority to his job than to the children or her. Matt send back a legal document saying that any inhumane treatment that Annette experienced was provoked by her.

After three weeks from filing the papers, she immediately withdrew them.

After the divorce files were withdrawn, Matt shared a lot of posts and pictures of him spending more time with his children on social media sites. He also had mentioned about annual ski trips with his family.

There was a lot of questions related to the divorce. The divorce papers were returned within a few weeks and immediately they celebrated their wedding anniversary, as if nothing happened. Matt had been accused of adultery several times during their 18 years of marital life and never did Annette commented or talked about these issues. There was no other divorce filing on account of his womanizing acts. Media rose a lot of questions related to the same and none were addressed by either of them.
