Singer Ed Sheeran found true love on another continent. When he first started dating girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, she lived in New York and he lived in England. The two, who met in school, made that work for a while before Seaborn moved to England to be closer to Ed. The latest buzz is that Ed plans to propose to her soon, sealing the deal that has seen a lot of miles traveled to build their relationship before finally ending up in the same place. This is not an unusual scenario.

Since celebrities and singers are so busy on set or on tour, they often meet and even strike up a relationship with someone who lives far away.

Kristen Bell recently shared how her husband, Dax Shepard, was her wingman at the Golden Globes so that she could meet her celebrity crush, Riz Ahmed. This is a perfect example of a relationship where both partners are secure and completely trust that, even though one may find another individual attractive, it won’t challenge their fidelity. It’s natural to see others as appealing, even when you’re in a committed, monogamous relationship, but it is also important to remember that everyone’s physical appearance changes. People get older, and sometimes they get sick. Beauty is not enough to sustain an ongoing romance. If you know in your heart that you’re always the most important person to your partner, then even if they have flirtations and/or a crush, it will enable you to tolerate your partner’s attention or interest in someone else without feeling threatened.

So, how do you get the trusting feeling that equips you to joust jealousy? Here’s some relationship advice.

By Dr. Jane Greer

You’re never too old to have a child – just ask Steve Martin, Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, and many other celebrity dads who are choosing to become fathers later in life. While there is no ideal age that is perfect for every couple, having children at an older age has many benefits and also a few possible drawbacks. And you certainly don’t have to be a celebrity or a dad to consider starting a family beyond your twenties and thirties. In fact, because of various reasons including being caught up in their professional lives, many people are realizing it doesn’t have to be one or the other, and despite focusing on their career for years realize they have not missed the chance to have kids. With that in mind, along with the current fertility technology and the possibility of adoption, many are pursuing that goal in their forties and even fifties. If you are in a new relationship with an older or younger partner, or you’re older and finally ready to enjoy the joy of parenthood, or you have kids with an ex-spouse, but want to share that experience with a new one, there is still time.

Here are a few things to consider while you contemplate having kids later in life.

Tiger Woods opened up about his relationship with ex-wife Elin Nordegren this week. The couple ended their celebrity relationship and marriage in 2010 after Tiger’s cheating scandal, but now they have managed to build an amicable friendship. With time, Elin seems to have gotten past the betrayal of her ex-husband’s infidelity, which is a challenge for many couples. Tiger and Elin share two children, so this must be a welcome development for all of them.

While some couples are able to find higher ground and continue to make their marriage work after an affair, others realize that the intensity of the pain of the incident is just too much and that they are better apart, as was the case for Elin and Tiger.

Some say Ben Affleck is waiting to find out if his celebrity ex Jennifer Garner wants to reconcile with him. Despite their celebrity divorce, they have remained close. According to a source, many people feel Jennifer is stringing Ben along and “making him jump through hoops.” They say she’s acting hot and cold, and he has no idea where they stand as a couple or a family. It can be very frustrating to remain in limbo and not know what to expect. Many people find themselves in this situation after a break-p or an attempted break-up.

Sometimes the road to splitting up permanently isn’t clear, and there can be lots of fits and starts before either reaching the final end of a relationship, or deciding to give it another solid try. Why is it so hard for people to let go, sometimes even if they are officially divorced? Check out the following relationship advice:

After five years of celebrity marriage, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green had decided to call it quits. However, apparently their differences are reconcilable – the celebrity couple has reunited and is moving back in together. Sometimes it can be very helpful when two people take some time apart to evaluate how they feel about each other, and to sort out what is really important to both of them.

In the face of baby number three on board, it looks like Fox and Green have decided to join forces to work on their marriage and see if it can, in fact, work on take two.

Pop star Miley Cyrus was spotted wearing an engagement ring after she and former fiancé Liam Hemsworth reunited over New Year’s in Australia. Multiple sources revealed that Miley had been struggling to move on from Liam after the end of their celebrity relationship, and has never fully gotten over him. It appears the feelings are mutual, as the celebrity couple is giving it another try. And, they aren’t the only ones people are talking about when it comes to wondering about the possibility of rekindled love. Superstar Madonna and movie star ex-husband Sean Penn have reportedly been spending more time together lately, and were recently seen at a hotel bar together. All of this can be heartening for those who wonder about doing something similar with a previous partner. Hearing these stories can make people believe in romance and the value of a shared history. But, it also raises questions.

How do you know when an old loved has the potential to come back to life, and when is it best to leave an old relationship where it is, in the rear view mirror? Here is some relationship advice:

catching the clues that something is off

Not all roads to romance offer a clear ride. Sometimes the signs are harder to read than others. As Emily Maynard, this season’s Bachelorette, handed out roses, the message was pretty clear: stay or go. But short of gathering for the ABC show’s famous rose ceremony, is it possible to miss the message? Might an important lane shift have taken place that you somehow didn’t notice? And what can you do to protect yourself against the turbulence of an unexpectedly bumpy ride?

Heather Locklear: What Is She Running From?

No matter how talented, beautiful, or rich you are, none of those things are sure antidotes for misery.  Heather Locklear is a clear example of this. The Melrose Place actress was rushed to the hospital last week, reportedly because she mixed alcohol with prescription drugs, after her sister found her unconscious.  This newest crisis follows years of trouble and heartbreak including two stays in rehab, an arrest for a DUI, two divorces, and her more recent break up with Melrose Place costar Jack Wagner.  With all this in mind, it seems that Locklear’s latest episode might be part of her attempt to outrun her unhappiness, but unfortunately she doesn’t seem to be getting any traction.

Charlie Sheen: The Greatest Loss of All

People are still transfixed by Charlie Sheen.  Some clinical speculation about his behavior has suggested the ravages of drug addiction or an untreated bipolar episode.  While all of this may be true, to me, it looks like unbridled narcissism in full fury.

The go-to definition of narcissism is thinking only of oneself.  However, when you use the word narcissist you are really making a much bigger statement.  A narcissist is not only selfish but actually lacks the ability to think of anyone else.  Most narcissists are masters at turning things around so they’re the ones being wronged, and they make it appear that they are doing you a favor by letting you make it up to them.   They are typically self-righteous and have an exaggerated sense of entitlement that leads them to believe they deserve everything and more.  When they don’t get what they want, they get angry and their rage knows no bounds.
