That was true. They were officially split apart by then.
Anyway, I would rather not have had the reboot and have the marriage written well. But since DC editorial decided to reboot, rather than divorce or worse pull a OMD story, I think that they made the best choice without weakening the characters. At least DiDio didn't make his feelings on the matter public until the reboot went into effect, unlike Quesada who couldn't keep his trap shut on the subject since the start of his E-I-C tenure.
