Six Important Lessons To Avoid Divorce

Category : Celebrity, Favorite Articles, Lessons

Everyone has been covering the Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony split. As far as celebrity and divorce, it’s a major happening. While I haven’t covered it yet because I figured you have heard enough just like I have, there was one article written by Stu Gray that I thought was well done. He covers the six love lessons to take away from the J-Lo and Anthony divorce. Gray feels there is something new to learn from this split.

Here are some of his lessons from that article:

1. Know that the seven year mark is a difficult time. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were married seven years. Experts say that the 7 to 10 year mark is the time when many people start to think about jumping out of marriages. This was true in my own marriage. About 7 years in, I began searching for what could make my marriage better, thankfully, instead of deciding to give up. I decided to improve what we had. Know that these periods of time are going to come, and they are also going to pass. If you keep working on your marriage, and not looking for ways to eject from it, you will come out better on the other side.

2. A marriage isn’t a business deal. I don’t know all the details of the Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez marriage, and I don’t want to be too judgmental. But I do know that they are both very business savvy and make lots of money doing what they do. In reading about their split, I was reminded that there is always more than money at stake and “who gets what” when a marriage breaks up. Something does happen to the children. Even if the breakup is amicable, there will always be emotional scars. Talk to kids whose parents have been divorced. Even if the breakup was cordial, most will tell you that they wish it wouldn’t have happened.

J-Lo is beautiful but stands no chance in a competition against her husbands talent. J-Lo can listen to his beautiful voice all the way to the bank with those alimony checks, and he will say to her, “did you cash them yet, come on baby cause I need to know.”

People in show business do not live ordinary lives and therefore are not really role models for the rest of us. I suspect that one has to be VERY self-centered to be successful in show biz.

It sounds like Stu Gray’s advise is good ‘ole common sense. Easy to say, hard to live by…..

j-lo and marc have two children, their most important priority
