No one takes their marriage seriously anymore. What do they expect? Honeymoon everyday? Do they not know that if they try and endure the tough times it makes for a stronger marriage? I should know......I've been there for 32 years.

Call me Pilar. As long as you agree not to talk we could have a great time together. Maybe you could even wear that outfit you wore pumping gas, delicious.

First thing Deion Sanders said when he heard Kobe was back on the market - 'I'm getting divorced, everyone back off, Kobe's mine.'

So is it that people don't Get that marriage is about supporting each other and the family? Why bother getting married and have a bunch of kids and then decide their Personal interests aren't being fulfilled by their Partner? Duh. Oh well, at least they didn't kill the kids. That's always nice.

Wow, TMZ. All this divorce news is seriously sobering me to the reality that I better stop holding onto some fantasy that one day I'll get married/be in a lasting relationship, and that instead I should just be happy being alone.
