with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I’m sure that you’ve read a hundred posts by now about the fact that Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. There is much speculation about the why (Scientology weirdness being the main reason), but who really knows? Maybe he’s not the same smiling/happy guy he is for the public, or one hundred other possible reasons. Their impending divorce got me thinking about celebrity divorces in general.
The media likes to run with the idea that marriage is harder for celebrities. They have to be in the public eye, they may have conflicting work schedules, there is so much pressure.
I don’t think it’s any harder for them than it is for us mere mortals, honestly. We all live in communities where other people get to watch our marriage in action. If you live in a small community — as we do — everybody knows you.
Conflicting work schedules happen for my husband and I, as well as for many of our friends. It’s a fact of life if both spouses work.
As for the pressure … life is full of pressure. Pressure from our work, pressure from our families, pressure from our own expectations.
Marriage is hard, regardless of your social stature or celebrity status.
What do you think? Is marriage harder for celebrities?
