Sensuality often hurries the growth of love too much, so that its roots remain weak and easy to pull out.
In light of this whole attraction and engagement between these two Hollywood hopefuls, one has to wonder if there’s something in the waters of Tinseltown that makes big American movie stars charge into marriage, like bulls to the matador.
He met her like how (not-so) long ago? What the fuck be that about?
Many claim this to be nowt more than an elaborate publicity stunt. I myself prefer to reserve judgement as far as that’s concerned – except to say, what a way to gain publicity, if such be the motivation! Isn’t the generic ritual of dating adequate in itself for such purposes?
If sincerity be at the heart of all this, why-oh-why the rush to reach the aisle? I’m now convinced that the concept of speed dating is a parody of the pace of celebrity relationships in Hollywood. Now I may well be inexperienced when it comes to this area of human life, but for fuck’s sake, isn’t dating – at least the “steady” variant – meant to be an extended period over which you get to know – and I mean thoroughly know – your prospective partner? Why check into the Honeymoon Hotel with someone whom you’ve barely started to know (make of that what you will). I mean sweet-nothings may well be reassuring and heart-warming; kisses may well be fragrant and uplifting; and the fucking may well be fantastic – but are such sensualities alone really adequate tools to build a sturdy ‘n’ comfy marital bed?
J-Lo & Puff Daddy. Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston. Bruce & Demi. ELIZABETH MOTHERFUCKING TAYLOR!!!
The wreckage by the roadside of the registry office paints a pathetic picture…
Of course I could well ask what’s so damned special about marriage to make it such a yearned for commodity – one has long questioned the need to achieve the sanction of God and Government to justify one’s love…..
…..but such is a post for another day, my friends….
