Society: Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Split
Sunday, 2005 January 9 - 11:47 am
That's right, single folks, there's hope for us again. Yeah.

What is it about superstar celebrity couples that seems to make it impossible for them to stay married? We never hear stories about someone like, say, Harrison Ford (twice divorced) celebrating his twenty-fifth wedding anniversary with someone like Diane Keaton (never married).

Perhaps it's a clash of egos. When two people are both that successful, there has to be some measure of Type-A arrogance in both of their personalities, and maybe they just can't deal with the competition. Or perhaps it's the fact that celebrity romances like this are always in the spotlight. (Damn paparazzi.) Or maybe there's just a karmic force that requires some measure of separation between people of similar fame and attractiveness, like the south poles of two magnets.

Maybe celebrities only stay married for any length of time when they don't marry other celebrities. So Ms. Aniston: if you want a lasting relationship, get out of Hollywood, and, um, maybe come on down to North Carolina and give me a ring. I could be your "north pole". (Ahem.)
