There’s no hiding the fact that it seems like every time we turn around we are hearing about another Hollywood couple splitting. Unfortunately, in late 2011, we heard about the break up of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. This was particularly a disappointment for me because I found them to be one of of the coolest “blended family” marriages out there. I loved they way they were able to incorporate such a great co-parenting relationship with Bruce Willis. I’m sure you all have heard the rumors but supposedly, Demi and Ashton’s ”open marriage” arrangement ended up going sour.
Now, this week, we hear that it is splitsville for Russell Brand and Katy Perry. When I initially heard this, my first response was “Darn it!” I happen to adore this couple. However, according to Mail Online, sources close to the couple have said the couple are splitting due to Katy’s desire to put her career before having children. Being this is a personal choice, I will say I will remain mum on the subject because, at least, they didn’t have children and then decided to divorce.
As I like to say, choice, especially in our relationships is one of the key components to making any relationship last. If we cannot see the difference between our choices, whether good or bad, it will produce a consequence. Unfortunately, in these two marriages, in my opinion, the stress of Hollywood made for some choices that weren’t too cohesive to their marital units.
Have a great 2012!
