Celebrity Couples: Why You Shouldn't Look to Them for Relationship Advice (Guest Post)

Celebrity gossip seems to be a constant for the normal, television-watching person. While in the supermarket line, we reach for the tabloids to read the most recent news about our favorite superstars; especially ones reading "10 Celebrities Without Makeup," to assure ourselves that they are, in fact, just like us.
But we shouldn't base our relationships on celebrities. Why? Because they are not like us. Here's a few great examples of couples we should definitely not seek inspiration from:

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Relationship expert Ed Young writes "I shall not share the details of our marriage with others" in his "Love Affair" series. Although Kim and Kanye aren't married (yet), they are expecting a baby. How do we know? Kanye blurted out the news to the world on Dec. 30, 2012, while performing "Now you having my baby." During an Atlantic City concert, he stopped mid-song to say to the crowd, "Can we make some noise for my baby mama?"
Kim later confirmed the news in a blog post on her website saying, "It's true! Kanye and I are expecting a baby." There's gossip about how much money the stars will receive to publish the first baby photos. Allegedly, the happy couple already turned down a $3 million offer. Perhaps they're holding out for money for their baby's college fund? Yeah right, like they need it.

Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth

This young Hollywood "It" couple met while on the set of "The Last Song" back in 2009 and have been inseparable ever since. His most recent claim to fame is landing the role of Gale in "The Hunger Games" series. Miley is staying relevant through the use of her Instagram account, constantly evolving wardrobe and hairstyle choices. She most recently caught heat for her new platinum blonde, military style 'do.
The two, almost household names, got engaged in May of 2012. Although they seem to be a great couple, she's just a baby (19 years old). And although women married younger than this decades ago, it's not exactly a recipe for marriage success these days. Pastor Young and his wife Lisa have been married for over 30 years; maybe before the young celebrity couple ties the knot they should read "The Creative Marriage" for tips and pointers to help their union succeed.

Taylor Swift & Every Hot, Single Man

Taylor Swift is without a doubt the most idolized young entertainer to teenage (and adult) women everywhere. But her relationship choices are ... questionable. Rumor has it she's been linked to 13 men in just 4 years. And did I mention she's only 22 years old? According to websites such as and, she's dated some "real men" including Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles.
Her benefit to all these breakups? She's made smash hits after every single one. Sorry Taylor, but serial dating may not the best way to find a happy, healthy relationship.

I look at some celebrity couples but it's the ones who keep their life out of the lime light that have the truest relationships to me. It can be done

I love the ones that actually do last like Faith HIll/Tim McGrw, but honestly, so few do, its no surprise when a divorce comes!
