Chris Pratt has housing restrictions as part of his divorce agreement with Anna Faris.

TMZ reported the following details:

As we told you, Chris and Anna hammered out their divorce with the help of a private judge … who just signed off Wednesday on the deal. According to the docs, they’ve agreed to live no more than 5 miles apart for about the next 5 years.

The clause calls for the 5-mile rule to stay in place until Jack completes the 6th grade. Right now, he’s 6 years old … so, that means they’ve got another 5 years living in relatively close quarters.

I understand the whole thing about wanting to live near the children, but having it mandated in a divorce settlement is a bit wild to me. Why five miles? Why not 10? Why not 15? Would driving a little bit further really crush this kid? (RELATED: Chris Pratt Once Again Proves He’s One Of The Coolest Men Alive)

Five miles can be covered during the course of a short run. Hell, even somebody out of shape like me might be able to cover the distance.

It just seems like of all the things to have in a divorce settlement, being forced to live within a few miles of each other is such a bizarre request for the “Jurassic World” star.

Now, I don’t have kids. So, take everything I say here worth a grain of salt, but I’m just noting I don’t think I’d ever make this a priority in a divorce settlement.

Having said all of that, it is pretty cool Faris and Pratt are on such good terms, despite not being married anymore.

More than anything, that will be what’s best for the young child. Plus, having Pratt as your dad is probably pretty cool. I think the kid will grow up to be just fine.
