Now that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are semi-officially embarking on a sex-free trial relationship with a therapist who goes by the name of Dr. Anonymous Source, it’s time to talk about their impending marriage. Or did a wedding already happen? Did they sneak away and get married in a top secret ceremony ? Probably, because rumors say Kristen Stewart is pregnant and this entire scandal’s a giant cover-up for their growing family.
Or so a lot of people will have you believe. As soon as rumors started a few weeks ago that the couple reconciled, people started saying that they’re going to get married — or they should get married to solidify their commitment for one another.
Putting aside the fact that I believe this entire cheating scandal to be a Breaking Dawn publicity stunt and that they’re entire relationship’s staged to promote the Twilight franchise, I don’t understand why anyone would want them to get married now. Let’s say you’re a huge Robsten fan. Let’s say you truly love them and believe in them. If that’s the case, why would you want them to get married as they’re attempting to start serious film careers.
She’s 22, he’s 26. Sure, in some parts of the country that’s a totally normal age to get married. But in Hollywood, where divorces are more common than aspiring actresses waiting for their big break, it would seem incredibly stupid for them to get married now.
Not when they’re both going to be extremely busy for the next few years shooting movies. And not when they just endured the most scandalous Hollywood affair of 2012. Seems like a horrible to start a marriage in the midst of all this madness. Especially at a time when people will be watching the notoriously private couple more closely than ever.
So if you’re one of the people who’s on team, “Robsten should get married RIGHT now,” can you please explain to me why you think this is a good idea. And remember before you start talking about them being in love, that’s not usually enough for a young Hollywood power couple to survive.
Think Katy Perry and Russell Brand, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, Kate Hudson and Chris Robinson, the list of stars who married too young and ended up divorcing goes on and on. Love’s great and all, but I don’t think it’s always enough to compensate for two people who need to put their careers first if they want to achieve their dreams.
If they’re truly in love and truly meant to be together for all of time and eternity, a few years spent in unwedded bliss shouldn’t destroy them. In fact, it should only help them figure out who they are, where they want to be and why they’re actually together.
