Romeo and Juliet weren’t the only star-crossed lovers. Most marriage vows make mention of “’til death do us part,” and most people take that seriously. At the same time, most people aren’t celebrities who aren’t afforded the luxury of privacy when it comes to their relationships and love lives. We’re always rooting for them to work it out, but sometimes, that’s not the way the stars align.
We all love the glitz, the glamour and the romance of a celebrity wedding. However, life in the spotlight can be a challenge for famous couples, whether both of them are in limelight or not. And sometimes the honeymoon is over almost before it began.
