"Hollywood overstates both the romance of marriage and the prevalence of divorce. Celebrities have divorce rates that are atypical and higher than most couples. I suspect that in celebrity marriages, there are huge egos on both sides and they do seem to encourage unrealistic expectations about falling in love.

Respect is essential - not just respecting your partner but being sure your partner equally respects you." - Stephanie Coontz

He could have gotten his yacht lost, or whatever.)" - Meg Cabot
