It is always interesting to hear commentary about the lives of celebrities because it sort of gives you an idea of how people think. Classic example is the recent engagement news of actress Gabrielle Union and NBA player Dwyane Wade. It was super sweet to see the pictures on instagram and how happy they are. Fast forward a few days?? Suddenly people say that Gabrielle is foolish to marry him since he fathered a child when they had a brief break up.
Listen, breakups are messy. Relationships can get complicated. Who knows if Dwayne realized how much he loved Gabrielle after reuniting with an ex? Perhaps the grass was not greener. I heard a lot of women claiming they would never have been open to marrying someone who hooked up with someone else and returned to them with a kid.
I wonder, what does taking a break from a relationship mean to you? Have you ever asked for one? Do you think more couples should take some time off to test the relationship’s strength?
I also found it interesting to note that if the roles were reversed and Gabrielle had a child with someone else on “the break” – then people certainly would have a different perspective on the situation. I know, many of us could care less about the lives of the rich and famous, but I am interesting to see what our MIA readers think!
