Brandi Glanville rang in the new year by getting a new husband…temporarily that is.  The 38-year-old star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills married a mixed martial arts manager, Darin Harvey this past weekend.  However, according to UsMagazine.com: Glanville, the former wife of Eddie Cibrian, tweeted of the marriage “We’re not gonna stay married. But it was a fun way to start out the new year!”  According to a source, they got drunk and became hitched for publicity.  The two have never been linked romantically and think of each other as brother and sister.

Why is it important to think things through before getting married?

Cupid’s Advice:

Marriage is not a step to be taken lightly. Cupid’s Pulse has some reasons why one should truly think about their relationship before saying “I do.”

1. Responsibility: Marriage is a big responsibility and when people walk down the aisle it should be for better or worse.  Kim Kardashian took on a lifelong and very public commitment when she wed Kris Humphries.  And, when she separated from her husband, she  took away the maturity that this type of union entails, showing that one doesn’t truly have to take on that duty for life.

2.  It’s not a joke: When Britney got married in Vegas, and annulled it less than 3 days later, she illustrated to young people that marriage was disposable.  A commitment of marriage should be based on proper planning and true love.

3. Issues will arise: For those who wed on a whim, they will experience added pressure when problems arise.  Being with someone isn’t easy and being with a partner you aren’t 100 percent sure about is even worse.  Some people do make mistakes and don’t realize it, until it’s too late.  But, there should be an added fight and marriage counseling before calling it quits.
