Jenna Fischer Says Her Views On “The One” Changed After Her Divorce

“In a way, yes. After my divorce, someone said to me, ‘Finding love is not as hard as picking the right person to spend the rest of your life with.’ It was Paul Lieberstein, the executive producer of The Office; he also plays Toby on the show. I held on to that advice when I was searching. I’d start to fall for someone and think, But that’s not a good match. The fluttery feelings aren’t enough. When I was younger, I thought you married the person you fell in love with the most. But as [my ex-husband and I] learned what we wanted, I realized there was a whole other set of criteria. You have to ask, Do we have the same goals?”

– Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) on how her perception of “The One” changed after her divorce in the new issue of Redbook. She’s now remarried. What do you think — is finding “The One” (if such a thing exists — I think we have a few “Ones” in our lives) about so much more than just falling in love? [Just Jared] Keep reading »

Diane Kruger Doesn’t Believe In Marriage

“I was married very young [to French actor and director Guillaume Canet]. We were together seven years. Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don’t believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There’s no paper that will make you stay. A guy friend of mine said, and it made a lot of sense, that people should get married at the end of the road, not the beginning.”

Diane Kruger (who’s currently involved with Joshua Jackson) on having been married before and her lack of interest in getting married again in the March issue of Glamour. This kind of sums up my current feelings on marriage. I wasn’t married before, but I was engaged, and while I was committed to the idea of getting married to him, it was really just “formalizing” the relationship I believe we already had. Anyway, maybe I will end up getting married someday, but I wouldn’t say marriage is something I believe in. What do you think? [Glamour via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Feel Guilty About Selling My Engagement Ring

It was insanely beautiful. A round diamond in the middle, surrounded by a ring of tiny diamonds, set in platinum. It was custom-designed, but looked vintage. I had never thought much about diamonds — in fact, all of my jewelry, save the pair of diamond studs he had gifted me a couple years before, was from Forever 21 — but it was as if my boyfriend of four years knew exactly what kind of ring I would want when he proposed. I must have said, “Oh my god” 100 times. I wore the ring with love and pride up until we broke up nine-and-a-half months later. Keep reading »

Marriage Is Great For Your Health — So Long As It’s A Good One

Good news, married and soon-to-be-married folk! Wedded bliss can lead to better mental and physical health, a longer life, and more friends — but only if the union is a “loving and supportive” one. Researchers found that happily married people were more likely to eat healthier and have fuller social lives, likely because a supportive partnership encourages healthier habits and widens a person’s social circle. However, according to the researcher who reviewed major studies on the subject in seven European countries, an unhappy marriage is worse for a person’s mental health than not being in a relationship at all. In other words, there are worse things than being alone. [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Don’t Like My Brother’s Fiancée

God help me for admitting this: I don’t like my brother’s fiancée. Phew. It feels so freeing to write these words. I can’t even bring myself to call her my future sister-in-law. It makes my skin itch. I would love to be able to give you a concrete reason for being irked by her. Like she kicks small dogs or steals subway seats from old ladies or physically abuses my little brother. None of the above. Keep reading »
