Would You Do It?

I don't understand how my neighbor's cat with a brain tumour is outliving all these celebrity marriages. Fred Durst, the lead singer of Limp Bizkit (if you still remember them, I will admit I liked them at one point!), got divorced from his wife Esther Nazarov after 3 months.

As Fred Twitted:

"For those of you inquiring I will confirm that Esther and I have decided to go our separate ways and we both thank you for your support. Thank you all SO much for your concern and extremely kind words. Sincerely. We remain very positive and wish only the best for each other."

But hey this just might be longer than Kong Kardashian and Lamar even though their marriage doesn't count!


But here's an interesting question for you ladies:

Let's say that you are making enough money to support yourself, and you have been dating some C list actor for a few months like Smallville's Tom Welling *drool*, every thing's going great and you're having fun. Suddenly they propose to you.

Let's say that you know the marriage will last less than a year because you know they're not the one. But you get half of what they get when you marry them, say 4 million out of the deal. And heck, you two were dating and having fun anyways. Would you still go ahead and say yes?



That's a tough one for me. It's a bit embarrsing and I don't want to be labelled as the stupid girl who made a rash decision. Yet divorce is so common these days so people tend to judge less about it. And you two were dating so it's not like you are a gold digger. 4 million is also quite a lot...

Hmm. Would you??

  2. that's definitely a toughy. but then again... you have a point. the only people making a big deal about celeb divorces now a days is the media... and then they get the one minute reaction from the audience as to how terrible and stupid it is.

    and then everyone moves on with their live.

    heck you only live once! so do it! LOL!

  3. Hmm true and then you could always say you were married to a celeb, although I would never want to admit to marrying Fred Durst! However, couldn't you just live with them long enough to be common-law in which case you get the settlement benefits anyways?

  5. Hmm that IS a hard one!! I guess if fame and fortune was your thing you probably would... But I don't know... if you reallyyy loved someone could you bring yourself to vow "until death do we part" when all you really meant was "until divorce do we part!"

  6. it totally depends, if he was an ass, i would. however if you know you weren't going to be with him and he is a nice guy, it would be bad to take a chunk of his money.
    i mean, even if he didn't have a lot, i wouldn't want it. you can part nicely and not cut your friendship, esp over money!

  7. hmmm tough question! i think i would do it if i had the slightest hope that it might work out or he might be the one

    the money is tempting but then again i wouldn't want to waste that time with someone who isn't it when i can be looking for the real mr right!! that is taken in account that i am well off lol if i was poor and broke then Hellz Yes Count me in! x__x

  10. Urm... I don't think the legalities are quite that simple lol. But I would have to say no. That's just too weird for me hahaha. I never figured that marriage was all that special or sacred to me, but at the same time, I don't feel like I'd just want to hitch up with anyone, you know? Plus dude, you could totally end up being the one burned!

  11. I dunno.. 4million is very tempting though haha!

  12. LMFAO @ "Kong Kardashian"... that's so wrong!

    U.S. divorce rate is high anyway so nothing last. People are just getting married simply because... to people they don't even know.

  13. I'll be honest. I'm a man who would definitely marry some rich woman if I knew that when we divorced I would get a lot of money. Maybe I should be ashamed to admit it, but I'm being truthful. There are many people like that whether they admit it or not. Marriage has become a sham to most people these days, especially in the entertainment industry. It's that way among regular folks too.

  14. I wouldn't get married to someone just for the money, because if it isn't the one, whats the point, if you get divorced in the end? It's pointless to me.

  15. I don't want to get married! lol, but if I do get married I'll be legally married because everyone I know just has a wedding but they don't get married legally. They always end up splitting up and before they got married their relationships were unbreakable!

  16. Hmmm....tough question to ponder. I must say the money is an incentive...BUT...to be labeled the ex of Mr.______ That's enough for me to deny it all. No matter how much i ended up with...a label is FOREVER in the eyes of entertainment.

  17. I'm pro-divorce so why not? but it depends on the guy, if he's a nice person, then I won't, but if he's an A-hole, then why effin' not. =p

  20. mmmm that's a totally tough situation! Hmmm...I really don't know what I'd do...I'm an over-analyzer so I'm really thinking too much into this. lol. I'd have to say that it would all depend on where I am in my life right now...plus there's the whole "my traditional-Japanese family might hate me" thing. lol.

  21. ha ha :) Pop.. this is too much ... you are making me think , hmmmm.. well.. honestly.. i'm tempted cause of the huge amount, but i don think i will marry, my conscious will be pickering me till i get divorced if i marry in this case! :)

  23. OOh good question... hmmm... does it make me a bad person if I say I think I would?! I don't know though... I also don't want to be one of those people who are rich, but have been divorced 5 times. LOL

  24. hey, you know what. I would do it lol. My bf would let me do it too haha..its all for the money ^_^

  25. That's a tough question for all the ladies out there. For some woman marriage is sacred, so they are just willing to marry the guy whom they love so much. =D

  26. I'm a sucker for love but I couldn't do it unless I truly believe it'd be forever.
    Sigh, Tom Welling gives C list a good name...

    Happy weekend, J!
