When it comes to marriage, it's a rough road for pro skateboarder Tony Hawk. The guy who virtually put skateboarding on the map -- and we mean virtually, thanks to the "Tony Hawk Pro Skater" series of video games -- on Monday announced that his marriage had hit the skids.

Hawk and soon-to-be ex-wife Lhotse Merriam released this joint statement to People:

"We have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. We remain deeply committed and loving parents to our daughter, and out of respect for that responsibility we ask that people honor our family's privacy during this important time of transition. Thank you for your understanding."

The couple, who married in 2006, have one daughter, Kadence Clover Hawk. Hawk was married to Erin Lee from 1996 - 2004 (the couple had two sons) and Cindy Dunbar from 1990 - 1993 (the couple had one son, Hudson "Riley" Hawk, also a pro skater).
