Just three weeks after Sean Penn filed for legal separation from his wife, Robin Wright Penn, the Oscar-winning actor submitted a request on Thursday to dismiss the divorce case, People reports. This is second time that the couple has rescinded a legal separation. In December 2007, the couple filed for divorce, only to ask the court to dismiss the proceedings in April 2008. They have two children together: daughter Dylan Frances, 18, and son Hopper Jack, 15.
