Every marriage faces ups and downs. It’s work. But most of us don’t have to do that work in the glare of the public spotlight.

Vanessa and Kobe Bryant do. And they are making it work. The two have formally have called off their divorce. Vanessa put it on Instagram, Kobe on Facebook on Friday night.

Vanessa had filed for divorce more than a year ago, in December 2011. However the two were seen together pretty regularly within a few months. Last summer Vanessa and their daughters were in London for the Olympics where Kobe was picking up another gold medal.

I hope it works out. Honestly, no snark. Kobe and Vanessa have kids, and I’m not about to root against anybody’s marriage. I’m not sure it will be happily ever after, but I get the impression they are willing to work on it.
