Gibson met his wife Robyn Moore in the late 1970s soon after filming Mad Max when they were both tenants at the same house in Adelaide. At the time, Robyn was a dental nurse and Mel was an unknown actor working for the South Australian Theatre Company. On June 7, 1980, they married in a Catholic Church in Forestville, New South Wales. Gibson has referred to his wife as “my Rock of Gibraltar, only much prettier” and said, “life is about love and commitment and screw anyone who thinks that’s a cliché.” They have one daughter, six sons, and one grandchild. Their seven children are Hannah (born 1980), twins Edward and Christian (born 1982), William (born 1985), Louis (born 1988), Milo (born 1990), and Thomas (born 1999).

Robyn Gibson filed for divorce on April 13, 2009.

Daughter Hannah Gibson married Blues musician Kenny Wayne Shepherd on September 16, 2006. Mel Gibson’s spokesman had previously denied the rumor that Hannah was planning to become a nun.

This has been rumoured for months. Again, best for all - that’s a large family.

Wow! I wonder if it has to do with his drinking. If they get divorced, he can’t take communion...that is tragic. I don’t believe in divorce and thnakfully neither does my wife.

My wife and I are on the death due us part plan.

I quit smoking, lost some weight and have been exercising more lately.

If they get divorced, he can’t take communion.

I do believe that's incorrect. If he were to divorce and then re-marry (without getting a nod from Rome), then he would not be able to take communion. But just getting divorced is not a ban to communion.

And now i"ll go double check that...

Rumor has it that he was "recently photographed with a woman who did not appear to be his wife in Costa Rica on March 4."

Oh NO!!!! This has got to be one of the biggest oversights of the Obama administration to date. I can’t believe they don’t have a “Divorce Tax” in place yet.

I hope it is a rumor...He is supposedly a good Catholic. Not a great role model if true.

It was reported and photographed a couple weeks ago that Gibson was at his Costa Rican estate with some babeage with a great body.

“...always strived...”? What is it with lawyers [I used to be a prosecutor] and reporters and the English language? The word is STRIVEN!

I think that it has a lot to do with all the beautiful women with killer bodies that want him badly and are willing to do anything to get him.

I am so glad that I am not in that predicament.

We were just talking about “Till death do us part” yesterday. My husband’s cousin lost his wife the day after Thanksgiving after a long illness, he was dating by December. Her family is outraged and we just think he needed someone after having been married for 40 yrs to a strong woman and besides, he already did the “Till death do us part” thing.

Maybe he got too close with Britney Spears when he was advising and consoling her?

As a strict Catholic would he give her a divorce? He should refuse on religious grounds, and just let the courts force him into it.
