Celebrity Marriage Leads To Celebrity Divorce

Author : johnlium woods

It seems like every day the news is full of stories of yet another celebrity divorce. Some of what the public hears about is a sort of serial matrimony. It's like Tarzan swinging from vine to vine the way some of these young celebrity couples seem to swing from wedding to wedding.

However youthful impulsivity is only part of the story. It certainly doesn't explain why 55 year old Kelsey Grammer and his wife Camille are splitting after 13 years. It doesn't explain 49 year old George Lopez and his wife Ann packing it in after 17 years. It doesn't explain Cameron Crowe and Nancy Wilson divorcing after 24 years.

In fact celebrities' marriages break up for the same reasons that other couples' marriages break up. You wouldn't think so. Most ordinary couples fight over not having enough money. You wouldn't think people enjoying highly successful, well-paid careers would have that problem. But when you're a celebrity it takes a lot more money to be enough and nobody ever seems to be that successful.

People who live their lives in public find that all of their problems are magnified. A minor disappointment or even a major betrayal might be worked out if a couple is left on their own. But under the magnifying glass of public opinion a small issue can grow out of control.

The battering a marriage takes when the cameras are turned on it can be a shock to people new to celebrity. Thirty-three miners were recently thrust into the spotlight as they were rescued from a cave-in half a mile below the earth's surface. How they and their families will cope with their newly acquired fame remains to be seen.

One of the thirty-three miners saw his life begin to change before he even reached the surface. When his wife discovered that her husband had another woman and that she was also there waiting for him she was not happy. The fact that she made this discovery on life television in front of the entire world probably made the situation many times worse for her.

Unfortunately there are few things in the world harder to forgive than public humiliation. Infidelity is difficult to forgive but compounded by the knowledge that the whole world is watching and judging you it can become impossible.

The divorce rate among celebrities is nothing new. Even the silent movie stars like Mary Pickford and Pearl White and Charlie Chaplin had serial marriages. Fans recall that Lauren Bacall faithfully stayed married to Humphrey Bogart until he died. But she was his fourth wife and their marriage which lasted twelve years didn't set any endurance records.

All the ingredients that contribute to ordinary divorces are available to celebrity couples in abundance. The stress of always having to look and act perfect while working long hours makes a chemical vacation look very desirable. A career in show biz offers attractive people opportunities to be tempted by other attractive people. Domestic difficulties that could ordinarily be managed explode when an unhappy spouse becomes a drunk driver. It a recipe for public humiliation and celebrity divorce.
