Cupid's Pulse Article: Kellie Pickler Gives Up Her Cat for Love of Her HusbandCupid's Pulse Article: Kellie Pickler Gives Up Her Cat for Love of Her Husband

Country star Kellie Pickler gave up her beloved cat, Pickles, for her husband, Kyle Jacobs, who is horribly allergic to her feline friend.  Pickler adopted Pickles from a Tennessee animal shelter in 2006 after wrapping American Idol, and they’d been best friends every since.  After dating Jacobs for four years, she had to make the devastating decision to find Pickles a new home in North Carolina.  According to People, Pickler now lives vicariously through friends with felines and acts as an animal advocate.  In spite of her difficult loss, she did gain unconditional love with her husband.  “Every time I look at my hand, I go, ‘Good God.’  What’s behind this ring is such unconditional love, trust and respect.  I see my husband every time I look at my ring.  I’m a blessed woman — I have a good man,” said the singer.

What are some sacrifices you have to make when you get married?

Cupid’s Advice: 

We you get married, you may have to sacrifice a few things.  But, if you pick the right person, what you’re gaining is nothing compared to what you’re giving up:

1.  Family traditions: Family traditions may seem like a lot to give up, but when you’re gaining new traditions from your partner and they are gaining some of yours, it will only make you closer.

2.  Pets: If one of you is allergic, you may find yourself in the same boat as Kellie Pickler.  Just make sure you find your pet a loving new home.

3.  Your house: If you’re not already living together, getting married means make the big move.  People tend to get very attached to their homes, but keep in mind that you’re gaining a new life with the one you love.
