Gwen Stefani And Gavin Rossdale Call It Quits. What's Going On With Our Favourite Celebs?

And with this divorce, my 90s childhood feels completely shattered. I haven't been this floored since the conscious uncoupling of Gwenyth Paltrow and Chris Martin! It has not been a good summer for celebrity relationships. Will and Jada packed it in, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner did the same. Couples who seemingly had it all together, I'm looking at Will and Jada here in particular, are ending their relationships. And we like to speculate too, don't we? We immediately assume infidelity. That may very well be the reason for the break up but the actual truth is that most of the time we will never know. People grow apart sometimes. Or other relationship hurdles present themselves. In the case of Gwen and Gavin, maybe he was feeling a little tired of being treated as Mr. Stefani. Or maybe not. Relationships require time and commitment and sometimes our celebrities are incredibly busy, scheduled to the max from dusk to dawn both at home and away making it nearly impossible to heal fractures once they start. When couples in our everyday lives split up, we respond a little differently. If I hear of someone in my circle splitting up, I don't automatically assume it to be something insanely dramatic. I don't think "oh, well they probably split because he has a secret gambling habit and likes to whore around." Maybe that is the case but mostly I just assume that their marriage, for whatever reason, is no longer working. Why so much scavenger like behaviour from the peanut gallery? Do we really need to pick apart the carcass to get to the heart of what happened as if it is actually any of our business? What is going on in celebrity relationships? Nothing that isn't going on in our own relationships. We like to think that being famous and having money makes one impenetrable and worthy of emulation both as an individual and as a couple but the fact is, they are human. Perhaps it is this incessant pressure to appear 'perfect' to the media and the fans that contributes to a divorce. Maybe it is that exciting gambling and whoring scenario. Either way, you shouldn't consider it your business. At the end of the day, no matter how 'perfect' we deem them to be, celebrity couples are ordinary couples. There is nothing disastrous happening in Hollywood. Just personal break ups being played out in a public setting. Do you agree with me? Are celebrity couples ordinary couples who deserve our respect and a little privacy or is this sort of divorce rate to be expected in a setting so full of wealth, drama and opportunity?
