Celebrities twice as likely to divorce

A new report from The Marriage Foundation has found that after ten years of marriage the divorce rate for celebrities is 40%. For the rest of the country, the figure is just 20% over the same amount of time.

The report argues that the celebrity culture absorbed from magazines like Hello! give unrealistic, fairy-tale expectations about marriage and relationships, when in fact, “…the glamour of celebrity weddings is a poor indicator of future marital success.”

The Marriage Foundation examined 572 well-known celebrity couples who have tied the knot since the year 2000.  The report highlights the weddings of celebrities such as Britney Spears, whose marriage to Jason Alexander lasted just 55 hours. It concludes that people should have more accurate expectations of how much hard work it takes to keep a marriage together.
