Respect Your Relationship

I love pop culture like the next person - hey I was a teenager in the 80's! So while it shouldn't have, it did surprise me as the marriages associated the the popular music channel MTV have all gone down the drain in a matter of a year or two.

1. Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson
Probably very much in love at one time, but too exposed by the MTV show. Perhaps they had a support system that enjoyed the fame a bit more then even they did (Dad, Mom, Sister), adding to the demise of the marriage.

2. Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro
They don't have the "young and dumb" thing to fall back on, they were a bit more established then the other two couples. Again - too muchexposure in what was already two very over-exposed lives. Actress & Rocker.

3. Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler
These two weren't as well known...but sounds like the may have had some problems prior to MTV and then after MTV. Perhaps a very different view of what their marriage was going to be like. It seems the husband may have been along for the MTV ride, while the wife wanted to definitely capitalize on the publicity and notoriety. Plus they moved a bit fast...marriage, kids, reality show...DIVORCE!

Bottom line? Respect your relationship when you fall in love and decide to commit. Especially when you are first starting out. It's easy to think that when you first fall in love that everything will be alright - that nothing could possibly interfere in that relationship...but it can and it will. Relationships are tested everyday...and these poor three couples failed their tests miserably.

Don's set yourself up for failure...respect that your relationship is sacred, fragile, but beautiful.

Do you ever feel like they are the only one dealing with dating issues? Has anyone been able to locate any decent single sites out there? I know I have been all over the web searching for activities that don’t cost an arm and a leg? I’m not the type of person to give up easily I’ve been on several sites looking for local events. The only one I was able to find is http://www.singlesinmotion.com does anyone know of any other?
