Sharpton to divorce

The reverend Al Sharpton announced his separation from his wife after 23 years of marriage. The only reason I mention this is because one line in the statement jumped out at me:

The pair "have extremely active careers and their separation allows them to continue pursuing their work interests," the statement said.
I know it's a press release for secular use; but, for a supposed Christian leader to give this reason for his pending divorce seems to trivialize the whole covenant of marriage.
