Welcome to The First Years of Marriage Newsletter! We talk about the conversations, challenges, and changes that begin once the honeymoon ends. Advice from experts, mistakes from me (Jen Glantz), and things you’re going to want to know as you continue to ask yourself this question - “I’m married, so now what?”
When celebrities get married, they make the headlines.
When they get divorced, they make the front page.
Why are we so obsessed with famous people tying the knot or the messy details of the knot getting broken (thanks to the help of high-powered lawyers)?
Maybe it’s because we often look at people who are celebrities as statuesque and admire them in a daunting and unrealistic way.
We forget they are just like us, humans, whose good news and bad news is constantly underneath a magnifying glass and displayed for all of us to consume over our morning coffee.
This got me thinking:
What do celebrities have to say about the topic of marriage?
This is what I found:
Bathrooms & Marriage
“One of the keys to a successful marriage is separate bathrooms. When he enters my bathroom sometimes, I’m like, ‘Why are you in here?’ And he’s like, ‘I live here. Can I enjoy my bathroom too?’”—Michelle Obama
The Marriage Test
“Before you marry a person you should first make them use a computer with slow Internet to see who they really are.”—Will Ferrell
So annoying, Yet So Not
“I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.”—Rita Rudner
The Marriage Gift
“The best thing to ever happen to marriage is the pause-live-TV button.” —Rick Reilly
What’s the Problem?
“Marriage is an attempt to solve problems together which you didn’t even have when you were on your own.”—Eddie Cantor
The Marriage Punchline
“Husband secretly lowers the thermostat and I secretly turn it back up. We both vehemently deny touching it. Marriage is fun.”—Stephanie Ortiz
It’s All Good…or OKAY.
“Just found out the wife is writing a book about our honeymoon, called ’50 Shades of Just O.K.’”—Conan O’Brien
Love you (for as long as we both shall live),
