A Brief History of the Celebrity Trashing of Marriage

MSN featured a Top Ten list for shortest-lived celebrity marriage. Note that each of these involves straight people... with the possible exception of the Earnest Borgnine-Ethel Merman union. The very thought jars the mind more severly than even the Tanya Harding wedding night video did.

Miracle Mile

I achieved a mile today! I left the stop-watch behind for another day. I just wanted to accomplish this distance. This week will be about daily one-mile runs, so I'll trot out the watch on Friday.
The Threat to the Institution of Marriage

It's gay people, right? That's what I constantly hear, but what I hear is nonsense. The gay people I know are in committed relationships, some even married. None of the gay marriages I know have ended in divorce.

Celebrities are The Threat. Britney Spears personifies the cheapening of the sanctity of marriage with her ONE-DAY union. That's right, ONE DAY.

Show me even one gay couple that has done this, and I will begin to accept that they are a threat to institution. I'll bet dollars to your dimes that you can't find an example, and yet you barely need 10 seconds to name a celebrity that has been in a marriage (or three) that lasted less than a year.
