Luckily for Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro, they were able to part ways without having to invoke that " 'til death" clause.
A Los Angeles judge signed off Tuesday on the estranged couple's divorce, officially splitting the former 'Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen & Dave duo into separate entities.
Electra filed for divorce on Aug. 10, citing the celebrity special, irreconcilable differences, as the reason for the breakup. Her move came a little less than a month after she and Navarro announced that they had "amicably separated," and a day after it was reported that her musician hubby was dating porn star Jenna Jameson.
But despite the fact that Electra and Navarro were a high-profile pair, their uncoupling went off relatively smoothly, at least as far as the legal system is concerned. They had no children and agreed that there was no community property to split up, and neither petitioned the other for spousal support, according to court documents obtained by E! Online.

All of which must have been a nice change for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider, who also happens to be presiding over the West Coast leg of the Anna Nicole Smith paternity battle.
Electra and Navarro tied the knot on Nov. 22, 2003 in front of an MTV camera crew, which documented their courtship leading up to the big day for 'Til Death Do Us Part, a concept that seemed believable while watching the fastidiously made-up lovebirds interact on camera.
Who knew then that teaming up to star in an unscripted relationship series on MTV was akin to inking an agreement to get divorced in the near future? (Certainly not Nick and Jessica or Travis and Shanna.)
But the show must go on. According to Us Weekly, Electra has signed up to costar in a Las Vegas magic/variety show with Dutch magician Hans Klok, which will play out at the future site of the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
The sometime Pussycat Doll will get to apply her song-and-dance skills onstage, allowing her to do "what she loves most to do," a source told Us. Electra will do five shows a week for 13 weeks, starting May 12.
Navarro, meanwhile, teamed up last year with former Jane's Addiction mates Stephen Perkins and Chris Chaney to form a new band, The Panic Channel, which is fronted by singer Steve Isaacs. The alt-rockers, who went on tour in December with Rock Star: Supernova's title band, released their debut, (ONe), in August. Last month they announced that Powerman 5000 bassist Siggy Sjursen will be replacing Chaney.
