Only in Hollywood!

marriageI always love to hear the Hollywood crowd explain the stupid things they do and try to sound intelligent! Gwyneth Paltrow this last week tried to explain her separation from husband Chris Martin as a “Conscious uncoupling”. She goes on to say how we are not meant to be with someone for that long. Mind you she has only been married for ten years but in her mind that is long enough! Never mind the couples who stay married for sixty years or more make it somehow work, but for her this just doesn’t. Look, divorce is a reality I don’t think that every marriage is going to last, but I also think we need to be realistic about the reasons we are divorcing. To say we are somehow enlightened past the point of marrying for life is just fooling yourself! Only the Hollywood rich and famous get to marry and split up more often than I change the oil in my car, and most of them it is a business or marketing decision to get their name in the tabloids. For the rest of us in the real world marriage is not a business or marketing decision it is a lifelong commitment decision. Even if it doesn’t make it that long, we at least hope and plan like it will!
