Valentine’s Day is only a couple weeks away and rumor has it Gwen Stefani’s gift has already arrived! Her Instagram account recently showed a chestnut horse with the caption, “My new bunny #bestpresentever hi Halo.” It seems Blake Shelton came prepared for Valentine’s Day this year – and is raising the bar for men everywhere!
Amal Clooney, human rights attorney and wife of actor George Clooney, recently granted NBC her first American interview. In it, she revealed she does not actually consider herself a celebrity. While dozens of paparazzi and tabloid magazines beg to differ, it does raise an interesting point: celebrities are frequently famous without ever having asked for it. Fame is not in itself an identity, but rather a byproduct of doing what you love – and being successful at it.
Divorce lawyers have seen it all: the good, the bad and the ugly. Not every divorce is a War of the Roses, but they aren’t spontaneous occurrences, either. Usually the events leading up to a divorce can be felt on both sides of a relationship long before the D-word is mentioned. Our matchmakers from NYC to San Francisco have located some of the best relationship advice – from divorce lawyers! Part one of a three-part series about relationship tips from the experts is bound to help save your relationship from disaster.
The D-word has ruined more lives than can be imagined; legal fees, emotional distress, and the uncertainty of where life goes next can all take a toll on divorcees. Celebrity is a unique dating obstacle, which is reflected in higher divorce rates and increased relationship satisfaction overall. Fortunately, divorce is not the end of the road. Many famous people find love after divorce and are now living their happily-ever-after, albeit a little later than planned.
Mary-Kate Olsen married beau Olivier Sarkozy in a private ceremony over Thanksgiving weekend. While Olsen and Sarkozy might seem an unlikely pair, their relationship makes a great deal of sense: Olsen is a self-starter running her own successful design business and Sarkozy is a banker of French origin who resides in the United States. Sarkozy, brother to France’s former President, Nicolas Sarkozy, is used to paparazzi and the rigors of fame that follow Olsen. Sarkozy and Olsen’s frequent trips to France, the world’s capital of fashion, are no doubt convenient for her design career. The pair have been dating for about three years; if you ask us, this wedding is long overdue! The key here is that it is possible to juggle fame, success, and a happy relationship all at the same time. Olsen conducts her life the same way she conducts her business: intelligently! Here’s what Mary-Kate Olsen can teach you about relationships:
“I’m convinced that about half of what separated the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
The Apple Empire dominates the tech world even today, so one can’t help but wonder if Steve Jobs was right about what makes an entrepreneur successful. But what if this same concept was applied to relationships? Our matchmakers believe perseverance is part of what sets successful relationships apart from failed ones. From the time spent looking for that date to the actual hurdles that come between even the closest of partners, cool heads and a lot of patience are necessary to persevere as a couple. Replace the word “entrepreneurs” with the word “relationships,” and you can see how Jobs’ wisdom can be applied in your own life. So, what other love lessons can you learn from the tech visionary?
