I do. I don't. I do.
Marriage is supposed to be “until death do you part,” but no one ever said anything about taking a break in the middle.
And let’s be honest, the “until death” part is easier said than done. It’s why divorce exists in the first place.
It’s easy to sit back and judge a failed marriage and think that it’s the end of a couple. But maybe that’s just an old way of thinking and it doesn’t have to be that way.
What if some couples just need some time apart, or go through a rough patch and need room to grow on their own? Just because two people split up NOW, doesn’t mean they have to split up FOREVER.
Taking a break can be just the right medicine for a rocky relationship, so how come we generally don’t allow it for marriages? It seems weird and backward.
If you loved someone so much that you wanted to get married to them, it’s hard to imagine that ever going away. It might be easy to split up for a small amount of time, but there has to always be something in the back of your mind reminding you of that person.
Sometimes, you just can’t stay away. And for these celebrities, truer words have never been spoken.
