Hollywood romances never seem to last, and it is commonplace to see a new story on your Facebook feed nearly every week about another celebrity divorce or split. It is hard enough for the regular Joe to maintain a marriage and with the temptations celebrities are surrounded by it is no wonder most of their marriages end in divorce. When you spend long periods of time away from your spouse, the relationship can grow stale, making any time you are able to spend together seem strained and difficult. Another factor that is present in the lives of celebrities more frequently than other marriages is the close proximity to which they work with others. Many roles require a star to play the part of a spouse or romantic interest, and sometimes that line is crossed in real life.
One of the more recent tales of a pair of stars who were not able to keep their relationship strictly professional is that of Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff. The couple appeared together on a reality dancing program, and are now linked romantically. Amidst gossip and other talk, Rihanoff has this to say about the relationship:
● Kristina denies the rumors that she took any action to break up the marriage of her dance partner, Cohen.
● The pair maintain their relationship did not begin until after Cohen had sought a divorce.
Being in the spotlight can put a strain on your relationship, and when a person reaches superstardom status, the sky seems to be the limit. With a seemingly endless cash flow, and a staff at your beck and call it can be easy to live in a bubble. All too often this is what we see with celebrity marriages. And, celebrities have a way of becoming self-absorbed, which is not something that works when you are married. A marriage is a partnership; it is an “us” or a “we”, not an “I”. Stars are so used to everything being about them that it can be a difficult transition to make when the “I” becomes a couple. While this phenomenon occurs most frequently with stars and high profile people, it can also be something the everyday person experiences.
