Why Most Celebrity Marriages Don’t Last

When it comes to celebrity marriages, it’s a known fact that they usually end in divorce fairly quickly. Even though it can be exciting to see two of our favorite screen stars fall in love and get married, there’s always that lingering expectation for the day that they decide to call it quits.

It can be a punch in the gut to hear the news that your favorite celebrity couple is divorcing, however, it is more common than rare. Most of these breakups are due to the same reasons.

While a normal non-celebrity marriage may find themselves bickering over things like decorating their home or which cable package to choose, celebrities have an entirely unique set of challenges that normal folks will probably never have to worry about. Here are some of the most common.

Conflicting Schedules

Since celebrities are in high demand and are invited to lots of events and premieres throughout the year on top of their shootings, they may find themselves on the road for a good portion of the year. If they were married to someone else who didn’t have this kind of schedule, then it may be manageable if their partner were flexible.
However, when you put two people together who have equally chaotic schedules, then it starts to get difficult for them to be able to make time for each other.

Pressure From The Media

When two celebrities get married, the media will start looking for whatever they can get their hands on in order to sell more magazines. That means that they will start making mountains out of molehills and creating stories where they may be none.

When this starts to happen then conflicts and paranoia can start to arise. Seeing your personal business on the cover of magazines or talked about in the news can make a couple start to argue when there wasn’t anything to argue about in the first place.

The pressure from the media can start to make a celebrity couple start to feel entirely too much pressure and speculation about them. This tends to sadly lead to their demise as a couple pretty quickly.

Temptations From Costars

When it comes to a day in the life of a celebrity, there is no shortage of temptations. Wherever they go they are treated like royalty and the opposite sex is dying to get a few moments alone with them.

Apart from this, however, there is the extra added pressure of having incredibly attractive co-stars that they are shooting films with.

When they are required to shoot steamy scenes with their co-stars and spend a lot of time on set together over the course of several months, attraction can start to happen.
