Let’s Talk about Divorce
What’s the first thing you think to yourself whenever you hear the news that a friend of yours is getting a divorce?
Usually, it’s “Why?”
And it’s not always because you care about the people involved with the marriage — usually it’s just morbid curiousity. Sometimes the marriage has just run its course and it’s time for both parties to move along to the next phase in their lives. Sometimes there are personal, philosophical, moral, financial, or other extended circumstances that just make for juicy neighborhood gossip.
Web Watch knows one couple whose marriage was dissolved within 30 days of the wedding. It’s not important that it ended up being the right thing to do for the people involved, that entire event is still a topic of conversation many years later, in part because it’s just a great dramatic (and slightly amusing) story.
Which brings us to another reason why some marriages end in divorce, as seemingly brought up in the news when Sandra Bullock won her Oscar — sometimes men don’t want to be married to women who are more successful than they are.
