Let me start by reminding you that no marriage is perfect. Whether you are a celebrity or an average person, every wedding has its unique challenges. But any marriage that works is not a miracle; it’s as a result of the efforts the partners make to keep it going.
No matter how much two couples love themselves, such love may not withstand the test of time, if they aren’t making efforts to make things work.
It’s quite painful when we see recurring headlines of celebrities divorce. Does it mean that no celebrity can have a successful marriage? The answer is No; every superstar should have a happy home irrespective of his or her career.
I know a few celebrities that are happily married, and they are still doing well in their various careers. Now don’t get me wrong. Even those who we assumed are living happily with their spouses have issues with their homes as well. But they can manage it, and this is why they are still in their marriages.
So, in this article, I will share with you five tips that could make celebrity marriages work. Again, these tips aren’t for celebrities alone; you can as well apply it to your home.
#1. Take Your Marriage Off Social Media
Social media is fast becoming a part of our tech life. Arguably, most people can’t spend a whole day without engaging in one social media activity or the other. I am not disputing the fact that Social media is great, but it isn’t the best place to discuss your marriage.
Trust me, your followers or fans online don’t care whether your marriage works or not. They are just there scavenging for information to be shared on their timeline or status.
It doesn’t matter how bad things are, try to resolve it with your partner amicably. Make your marriage issues very personal, and if for any reason, people got wind of the challenges in your marriage. Decline any interview and don’t respond to any online information meant to stimulate a statement from you.
#2. Respect Your Spouse
Lack of mutual respect is one of the reasons celebrity marriages don’t work. It’s often surprising how two couples whose marriage trended on social media for months break up in less than a year after the wedding. Most times, mutual respect is the cause.
To your fans out there, you are a demigod, but you are yourself to your spouse. You must be ready to humble yourself before your spouse. Otherwise, things will not work. No matter how much you love each other, without respect, marriage can never work out.
Without a doubt, respect is the cornerstone in any relationship; without it, love will die a natural death. In my opinion, respect is more important than love in any relationship. You can argue if you want, but it’s the truth.
Once you start losing respect for your significant other because you are a celebrity, the marriage will crumble.
The question now is, “ What does respect really mean in a relationship?” In its purest form, mutual respect in marriage involves speaking with your spouse respectfully and fashionably. It also involves considering your partner whenever you make decisions. In other words, always consider how your choices will affect your partner.
Now don’t get me wrong. I never say you should sacrifice yourself or career to make your partner happy. But try to discuss critical issues with love even when it seems complicated.
#3. Learn What Your Spouse Like
Compromise is key to every successful marriage. Try as much as possible to learn what your partner’s like. You may not like it but try to take an interest in your spouse’s witch.
Once he or she notices that you are taking an interest in their hobbies, it gives them the impression that you genuinely care about them.
#4. Always Create Together Time With Each Other
Don’t get carried away by the “title” celebrity; try to create together time with your spouse. Some stars often fail to prioritize their marriage. And it’s sometimes a contributory factor to the marriage failure.
Irrespective of your career’s schedule, try to make time for your spouse. If you know you are so busy with work, why did you agree to get married in the first place? You can’t go around granting interviews and traveling to places, and leave your spouse to be lonely. It’s always an invitation to problems in your marriage.
Even if you decide to travel for a while, ensure you make video calls regularly with your significant other.
#5. Let Your Spouse Know That It’s Not As Rosy As It Seems
You can’t deny the fact that there are gold-diggers everywhere looking for already made spouse. And celebrities are often a target. Some people believe that celebrities are super-rich. They fail to understand that most of them are living fake lives.
And once a gold digger gets married to you because he or she thinks there’s gold somewhere. The relationship may die a natural death if such a spouse discovers that it’s not as rosy as he or she thinks.
For this reason, try to reveal the real situation of things to whoever you are marrying before you continue. At least, it will assure you that you aren’t marrying a gold digger.
