Marriage Pretty Much Blows, According To A New Book

In case you were considering getting hitched at some point in your life, a new book by historian, Pamela Haag, wants to remind you that the reality of marriage ain’t so pretty. Marriage Confidential, which explores modern marriage through research, surveys, and first person accounts, found that more than 30 percent of people wish they never took the plunge at all and that more than half of married folks want to have an affair. According to Haag, technology, work stress, parenthood, and the shifting roles of men and women are changing what marriage looks like for most of us and it’s not looking so hot. This is very encouraging information for the single among us. It makes me feel more motivated than ever to run out and find a mate. If “the semihappy marriage” — the most promising amongst the five kinds of modern marriages Haag profiles– is the best I have to look forward to, I think I’ll pass. Marrieds out there, please chime in. Give me hope. Are you more than semihappy? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Betty White Gave Up After Two Divorces, But The Third Time Was The Charm

“I’ve had two bad marriages, and I don’t like to think of them as good mistakes. They were traumatizing to go through. You really feel like a failure when your marriage doesn’t work. But they did make me appreciate it when the perfect one came along… [Allen Ludden] was enthusiastic about everything. He was intellectually wonderful. He was silly. He was romantic. He knew how to court a lady. Eventually, he wouldn’t even say hello—he’d say, ‘Will you marry me?’ And I’d say, ‘No way!’ He was hosting the game show ‘Password’ in New York and I was living in California, and I said, ‘No way will I get married again.’ I kept saying no for a year… Even long after we were married, he’d call me up during the day and ask me out on a date. He’d barbecue a chicken. We’d have a glass of wine, put on a stack of records, and dance.”

Betty White writes in Newsweek that she felt like a “failure” after getting divorced twice and had vowed never to do it again. Apparently, with her first husband she moved to a small town in Ohio where she was responsible for killing the chickens. Her second marriage broke down because he wanted her to stop working. Betty is proof positive that you always get another chance at love. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Cameron Diaz Wages A One-Woman War Against Marriage

“I think a lot of people are married to people they’re not romantic with anymore. I just didn’t ever marry anybody that I then had to get divorced from. We break up. We move on.”

Cameron Diaz talks in the June issue of Elle UK about the concept of marriage, while promoting her new movie, “Bad Teacher,” which also happens to star her ex, Justin Timberlake. Cameron is starting to sound like a broken record when it comes to marriage. Back in June, she said she didn’t want to be with someone for 80 years, and preferred her relationships in five year increments.
