It' a sad day



Another day, another failed marriage in Hollywood.

I don’t know about you but the fact that Brangelina are over is seriously disheartening. The other day Brent and I went for a drive and he had mentioned that he saw a tabloid that Brad & Angelina were divorcing, I literally scoffed and said “Hell no! There’s no way!”

When I asked him what tabloid he read that on, he told me it was InTouch which further confirmed that there was no way in hell. I mean how trustworthy is InTouch really?  I being the hopeless romantic that I am defended the couple and pointed out how they were a true iconic Hollywood couple, respectable actors who help those less fortunate in more ways than one, so obviously they have to have the perfect marriage, right? WRONG. According to my sister who read this on TMZ it’s a real thing and we should all mourn this tragic loss.

They were together for 10 years and married for two… Where did it all go wrong? Apparently he cheated (surprise, surprise?) That would for sure be a reason to leave a man. Damn Brad, why you gotta do that?!

Since I am a newlywed, I will stay optimistic on marriage. Brent and I have been together for almost 7 years and have been married for 2 months. I get asked quite frequently how “married life” is and my honest to god response is, exactly the same as dating and being engaged.

Other than my name changing everything is exactly the same and I like it that way, thank you very much. I enjoy being comfortable with Brent and having a life partner. We don’t call each other best friends because I read a huge article talking about how that shouldn’t be a thing and I agree with it 100%. You can read it HERE. But he is the love of my life.

I think that our relationship didn’t change drastically or anything because that happened to us 2.5 years ago, when we moved in together. Talk about changing the dynamics of your relationship! As someone who never lived outside of home when I moved in with Brent it was so different, I had to adjust to being the one doing the laundry (yes, I’m aware I was spoiled… thanks mom!), making dinner every night and maintaining a clean house. It was stressful at times but once we fell into sync there was no holding us back.

Do I know what will happen in 20 years? No. But do I believe that I found my forever person, hell yes. Divorce rates are so alarmingly high and I don’t get it. Unless you are 150%  certain about marrying someone don’t do it and if it starts going to shit, you work on it. We live in a time where people take the easy way out and if you’re getting abused mentally or physically obviously don’t stay in a relationship that’s harmful. I’m just saying that if you’re in a normal relationship there will be ups and there will be downs but you’re a team, you work together, you fight for your relationship. 

Unless he cheats, then you can most certainly tell him to screw off. 

RIP Brangelina.
