It’s been a rough summer for celebrity couples, with many — including Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale and even Kermit and Miss Piggy – calling it quits. And while it’s sad to watch our favorite Hollywood pairings un-tie the knot, marriage expert Fawn Weaver says most celebrity couples are doomed from the start.
As the Argument-Free Marriage author explained in a HuffPost Live interview on Tuesday:
The problem with celebrity marriages is that they’re not built to last. It’s very difficult to stand up against the spotlight in that manner, so we’re looking at these guys — we put them on these pedestals so they feel as though they have be fake all of the time and they have to go over the top, and that’s hard to do. They’re not able to really deal with their stuff.
Weaver, the founder of The Happy Wives Club, urges quarreling couples to slow down in their approach to problem solving.
”When you feel your emotions accelerating, immediately decelerate them,” she said.
