Seriously. I did the math.

Why Celebrity Marriages Never Last

Last week, the public was "shocked" by the news that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are divorcing. While it was upsetting for me to learn at first--since I am a big fan of Jennifer Aniston and want her to be happy--after a few minutes, it was not surprising.

It is more uncommon that marriages between Hollywood celebrities survive than if they don't. Even couples you thought were unbreakable like Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, and Anna Farris and Chris Pratt, all met a sad end. Divorce.

While it seems like the solution should be as simple as having a marriage out of the spotlight, it's not. In fact, after thinking about it, it is more shocking to me when couples do survive the scrutiny.

Imagine being in what you think is a normal relationship. You go out to dinner, and sometimes you stay home and cook it together. You go to the movies, you go to parties, you hang out with friends.

But then, all these other people try and come along one time, and they act like everything is totally normal like they know you. Then, they invite all of their friends because they're friends know you too, even though you don't know any of them.

And then, your friends invite people to take pictures of the whole thing. Constantly. At all times. No matter where you go.

And then, when you try and be alone with that person, all the other people invited along just try and listen and figure out what you're saying, or what you are talking about. If you want to be alone with this person, you have to completely hide away from the public, and not tell any of your friends where you are.

Usually, you have to eventually end the relationship because you are tired of all the other people coming along whenever you try and hang out with that person.

If none of this bothers you, you can probably handle a celebrity relationship, let alone marriage. Congratulations. Enter at your own risk.

Now does it make sense? The public assumes we know celebrities and their personal lives so well, and yet we know little to nothing about them. They don't even know we exist, and we are trying to figure out who they go on lunch dates with.

If you're ever emotionally invested in a famous relationships(*clearly just pretending I'm not*), do the math. It's odds of being a correct equation usually don't add up.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
