Cupid's Pulse Article: On & Off: When Celebrities Should Call it QuitsCupid's Pulse Article: On & Off: When Celebrities Should Call it Quits

By Daniela Agurcia

With fame comes glamour and wealth. These are things everyone wants, but they can also take a toll on a relationship. With a celebrity’s busy schedule and a seemingly bottomless bank account, it’s hard to make time and decisions for things other than themselves. The fact of the matter is that there’s only so much a relationship can take before the best decision is to just call it quits. Here are some of the issues that can ultimately break up a celebrity couple:

1. Your age becomes an issue:  There are many celebrity couples whose age difference is more than a couple of years and this starts to become a problem. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher seemed madly in love and happy to be with each other, until the issue of their ages caught up with them and they realized they both wanted different things in life. When your age difference is significant and you both have a different mindset, this will catch up with your relationship, causing a split. When you’re young, you want to continue experiencing life, while when you’re older, you’re usually ready to settle down .

2. Distance: The life of a celebrity can be hectic. Hollywood stars such as Katy Perry and Russell Brand have crazy schedules that barely give them time to relax and spend time with each other. Celebrities get caught up in everything they have to do and eventually the growing emotional distance between the couples becomes inevitable on both ends. There are only so many times you can Skype before you both realize it’s just not enough. If you realize that you’re only seeing your beau a couple of times a month, you’re not ready to settle down with each other just yet.

3. There’s someone else in the picture: Celebrities are constantly on tour or on set with many different people so they’re bound to meet someone who they have a lot in common with.  When celebrities work apart from their partner, they sometimes get lonely and end up finding that missing company and comfort in someone other than who they’re in a relationship with.  How can you avoid falling in love with someone like Robert Pattinson when you’re cast to play Bella Swan? Sometimes things just happen.

4. Fame and Money: A lot of fame and money can get to some people’s heads, and problems for celebrities are easily solved with having both, allowing them to avoid making rational decisions. With a lot of money, celebrities can make a quick escape out of a marriage or relationship, and it ends up being a trend in Hollywood to change your mind last minute about a huge decision, just like Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage. If you notice a pattern in someone’s love life that seems too fast paced, stay away!
