Love lessons from Hollywood...really!

Please tell me no one who reads this blog is shocked by the announcement of the "TomKat" divorce. Come on, this marriage didn't stand a chance, even with Cupid intervention.

I could weigh in on any number of the theories floating around cyberspace this week, but I'll keep my opinions to myself (Cupid PR is working!), except this one, because it pertains to a question from

"Crystal" who writes:
"I'm not a religious person, but my fiancee is. Will this be a problem if we get married?" 
Well, I suppose if you're an atheist and he's Christian that's going to prove interesting at family gatherings. Or if your fiancee is, say, a Scientologist. Kidding. Ha!

Sure opposites attract, but within reason. You and your fiancee don't have to have the same religious beliefs, but you do need to have an understanding of how you're going to deal with those differences when it comes to other things - like raising kids. And at the core, is respect.

But that doesn't just go for religion - respect is the cornerstone of all good relationships. Whether you'e respecting each other's choice of faith, or simply respecting your fiancee enough to not wear heels in public. Bloody hell, maybe that's the reason for the TomKat split?

Of course, in real life (vs Hollywood life), all of this should be sorted out before you walk down the aisle.

I know, love bites.
