Quaid and wife reunite after signing divorce papers

Dennis Quaid and his soon to be ex-wife are back together.

The 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra ' actor - who filed for divorce from his wife of eight years Kimberly Buffington-Quaid in November just six weeks after she announced their legal separation and recently bought a new $3.1 million home for her and their five-year-old twins Thomas and Zoe - has reportedly decided to give their marriage another try despite the fact they both already signed their divorce papers.

According to gossip website TMZ.com, the couple recently reunited but it is too late for them to halt their divorce.

The paperwork is currently in the possession of a judge and there is no way of removing it from the courts system so the judgment will become final.

It is not known if the couple plans to remarry.

Former real estate agent Kimberly originally filed for divorce last March because she said the marriage had "become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities."

She later asked for their divorce to be put on hold in April 2012 to give them time to work on their marriage but then filed for a formal separation in October.

A source connected with the couple revealed the reason for the renewed split was that "Kimberly is fed up with Dennis' cheating and wants out of the marriage. He's not a good husband."

The 58-year-old actor recently purchased a property, which is located in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles beside Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Bill Cosby's homes, and the title is held in both Dennis and Kimberly's names but under the terms of their divorce settlement she and their children have exclusive occupancy of the house until they turn 18.

The agreement also conditionally allows Kimberly to stay longer if necessary.

The actor - who was previously married to actresses Meg Ryan and P.J. Soles - requested joint physical and legal custody of the twins and offered to pay spousal support in his divorce papers.
