Ah, weekends. The perfect time to relax, sleep in, and grab brunch. Or if you’re a celebrity, get married or divorced. Here’s this weekend’s notable unions and dissolutions.

First up is Hilary Duff and ex-NHL star Mike Comrie, who announced over the weekend that they “have mutually decided to an amicable separation” and will “remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives,” they announced in a statement. The two are parents to the toddler Luca, of whom they’ll have joint custody.

It certainly looks like an amicable split with Hilary tweeting, “Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative for all of your kindness & well wishes.” She continued, “Not an easy day but we’re getting thru it together.”

Meanwhile, Pamela Anderson and pop culture footnote Rick Salomon (remember him? He’s the guy who made Paris Hilton famous when he starred as the other half in that sex tape) announced their marriage over the weekend. “We’re very happy,” Pamela disclosed to E!. “Our families are very happy and that’s all that matters.” It’s the second marriage for the couple — to each other. They were briefly tabloid fodder in 2007 when they were married for 10 weeks.

Someone else you need to send a wedding present to? Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, apparently married her “adopted” brother Nick Gordon last week, according to TMZ.com. Although the two claim that Cissy Houston OK’d the marriage, TMZ.com reports that’s a lie and that Grandma Houston is none to pleased about the union. As really, who would be when someone marries their adopted brother?
