One of the most talked-about couples in Hollywood has had anything but an easy ride, according to UsMagazine.com. Robert Pattinson told Vanity Fair that his relationship with fellow Twilight actor Kristen Stewart has been “very traumatic.” Pattinson said, “When this is over, the media will lose interest. There’ll be nothing to say. It won’t fit into a headline anymore. It won’t fit into a template.” The hunky actor, 24, added that while his 20-year-old girlfriend knows what she wants, he’s still figuring it out. “Kristen is very focused on being an actress. I mean, that’s what she is — she’s an actress.  Whereas I…I just don’t really know.”

How do you resolve conflicting career aspirations with your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

Just because you and your partner aren’t on exactly the same path doesn’t mean that you can’t work it out. Cupid has some tips on how to resolve conflicting career aspirations:

1. Support: No matter what your partner decides to do for work, support them all the way and if necessary, offer advice and guidance.

2. Sacrifice: If your partner needs to move for a job, ask yourself: which is more important right now, my relationship or my career?  You can always compromise, too, and try a long-distance relationship.

3. Do your thing: Make sure your partner isn’t holding you back or forcing you to do something career-wise.  If he or she can’t support your career change, maybe it’s time to change relationships.
