Why Divorce Is So Common Among Celebrity Couples

Orange County divorce lawyers; The Maggio Law FirmEvery marriage takes work. Just meeting and marrying someone you are in love with doesn’t automatically mean you will live happily ever after. Every married couple experiences some ups and downs in the marriage and it is how we handle the downs that decide if the marriage will work.

Celebrity marriages 

Celebrities like Hollywood A-listers might live larger than life but at the heart of it they are human too. They too have good days and bad and also have moments of vulnerability like the rest of us.

Along with high paying jobs also comes a lot of pressure which could put a strain on their personal lives. Working in a highly competitive profession, spending a lot of time away from home, and spending a lot of time with attractive costars can make celebrity marriages hard work.

Here are some of the things that can go wrong in a celebrity marriage:

  • The demands of the profession: Actors and singers often have to travel to film movies or give concerts. It is not always possible for their spouses to travel along with them especially if the spouse also has a packed travel schedule. Celebrity couples often drift apart because they barely get to spend any time togethe
  • Competitive jobs: With so many new comers to the acting and singing industry each year, celebrities have to constantly up their game to stay relevant. It is not uncommon for jealousy to set in when one spouse’s career is doing extremely well while the other is struggling. Resentment could build up in the marriage which could ultimately lead to a divorce
  • Insecurities and cheating: When a celebrity spouse is away on concert or shooting for a film there is a good chance they are spending a lot of time in close proximity with attractive costars. This could lead to the spouse who is not present developing insecurities about the relationship. In many cases these insecurities are not unfounded and affairs do actually start on set. Cheating and the constant fear of it are detrimental to a marriage.
  • Emotional and mental strain: Many celebrities are prone to depression and anxiety because of the demands of the job. Lack of sleep, no emotional support when away from home, tight schedules can all lead to emotional and mental breakdowns. What starts off as prescription medication to help cope with the strain can lead to substance abuse which could damage a marriage considerably.

Celebrities very often have to give more to their jobs than they do to their personal lives. With no time to make the marriage work combined with all the other pressures of the job it is no wonder that divorce rates are high among celebrity couples.
