The sheer number of celebrity divorces, especially during the summer of 2015, solidifies the notion that a Hollywood marriage is not the same as any other marriage. Stars seem to marry and divorce on a whim, and quickly rebound when a relationship ends. Part of this can be attributed to spending too little time together, and part of it can be attributed to the “diva” status some superstars eventually attain. Regardless of why a celebrity couple calls it quits, there are some common causes for why our favorite TV or movie stars are unable to find lasting love.
In some cases, the tabloids may be to blame. For instance, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, have been fighting off rumors of their split recently. The pair has announced they are not separating, but three things that could eventually cause a rift might be:
- Too much press, and/or the inability to separate fact from fiction. While we in no way are making any comment on Stone and Garfield’s relationship status or ability to maintain a relationship, it is common for stars to end marriages or other relationships when the press turns up the heat. In fact, the issue of too much tabloid is so common that many stars simply avoid reports on their personal lives.
- A work romance that develops into more than just work. We all saw this happen with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and it is a common cause of many celebrity splits. Any time a couple spends a lot of time apart, and in the company of someone they are attracted to, an end to the relationship is a real possibility.
- A disproportionate balance of work between the pair. When one star is constantly on a job and the other is not, feelings of resentment often develop. In the most serious of cases, this resentment can build into an inability to continue the relationship.
While you may be thinking most of the reasons celebrities split do not apply to you, nothing could be further from the truth. Most relationships can fall prey to outside attractions, feelings of growing apart, and or listening to the advice of friends or family rather than talking things over with their spouse.
