Famous people love…
I was going through some articles on line and one of them was showing all the couples in Hollywood who have or are getting divorced just this year.
As I kept reading on, I started getting a bit sad. Hope was starting to diminish. Can a famous person stay married? Stay in a relationship and actually be truly happy? It is starting to dawn on me that maybe no one is every truly happy, there really is no Happily Ever After in this world.
Sometimes I understand that things don’t work out, and sometimes things just weren’t meant to be, the love was no longer there, there are differences, he or she cheats. Okay, okay, those are great excuses, but how do so many marriages seem to just be thrown away. As if saying I do in front of God meant nothing, as if love is nothing.
I want to believe that marriage can one day last forever. My parents although not a perfect relationship as managed to stay together for 31 years now. But they aren’t famous, so, does that give us regular folks hope, that maybe it does work out?
Still it would be nice to see a famous person fall in love and stay together for always. There are some of them that have worked out but it seems even more recently couples who have been together for 20+ years are even getting divorced. What does this say about our society? Maybe people just fall in love too fast and think that this is the person, when in reality you don’t even know this person, but for those who have been married for so many years, I would think you knew who you married a long time ago.
A few quotes I found that I thought you may like:
“Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate”. ~Barnett R. Brickner
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person”. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966
“Life is simple, its just not easy”. ~Author Unknown
Love is giving, receiving, knowing deep down that this person is the only one that you want to spend the rest of your life with. Love is knowing when in your heart you can’t stop thinking about this person. Love is Love, and when you have it, you have to do everything in your power to not let it slip away.
