TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Bieber and Gomez Split! Will Past Reminders Taint Their Future Marriages?
Written by T.M. Gaouette | November 12, 2012
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have broken up. And along with the initial newsflash, many online media organizations are offering a visual timeline of the couple’s relationship, from the time they met to their last moment captured together.
Every kiss, hug and PDA is available for fans to remember and feel sadness over. If it’s bad for the fans, imagine what it’s like for Bieber and Gomez. I feel really bad for them.
Should Bieber and Gomez not reunite but get married to other people down the road, how will their spouses feel every time they see an image of their loved one in a passionate embrace or lost in a kiss with their ex? How will the children of these celebs feel seeing Mom or Dad with someone else? How would you feel if that was your husband in the pictures above? Even though it’d be in the past, wouldn’t you still be hurt by them?
In Hollywood, it’s the media that memorializes your past relationships everywhere. In the real world, we do it with photographs and home movies. But would you like to see pictures and home movies of your husband with his ex or even exes? Some pictures can’t be erased or torn up when other family members are in them. Special occasions such as Christmases and birthday parties can’t be thrown away.
Your marriage may be a long way away, but every relationship you have until then will affect it. Dating builds a lot of history, emotions, memories and hurt feelings. So would it be better to just avoid dating altogether?
With courting, you don’t have to be reminded of the boys in the past that you gave your heart to–or had your heart broken by. With courting, you can save your intimate moments for your future husband and your married life together.
What do you think, ladies? Do you think reminders of past relationships can taint a marriage in the future?
