Divorce for the Rich and Famous
Celebrity marriage: the weddings are often over-the-top, glamorous affairs, and celebrity life is often enviable, with fantastical homes, luxury vacations, designer clothes, and every benefit one could imagine. So why then, do so many celebrity marriages wind up on the rocks?
Even though fame and wealth seem like delicious advantages in life and love, the fact of the matter is that celebrity divorce rates are significantly higher than the rates for the middle class. Recent news of divorce has hit Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, Cory Hardrict and Tia Mowry, Lisa and Lenny Hochstein, and Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus. Whether they were married for a short time or for many years, it’s sometimes difficult to imagine what could possibly taint the magical world of today’s celebrity couples.
- One reason is that they generally have the means to survive comfortably on their own, so the financial reasons that keep some in unhappy marriages simply don’t exist. So even though spousal and child support come in at what seem to be astronomical numbers, it’s nothing celebs can’t handle. And coming up with the dough to run two separate households isn’t nearly the strain for these folks that many others face. Finally, most of these unions are protected with prenup agreements that take the bickering out of the process of divorce.
- Another factor playing into celebrity divorce is the social conditioning that is so accepting of divorce. Many of these people come from divorced families themselves and see divorce among friends and family every day. It’s just not a taboo to divorce when it’s part of the dynamic with friends and family.
- The dynamic lifestyles of the rich and famous can include a lot of ups and downs with their public image, their finances, and their fortunes in general. That can really take a toll on a relationship. And we know that stardom can have an impact on who people are. They lose their footing, and it can lead to real damage in a marriage.
- And how about all the travel celebrities enjoy! The rich and famous are often involved in separate pursuits that take them all over the country and even the world. Being apart and living with hectic, demanding schedules can be tough—and lead to opportunities to stray.
