Rock Star Marriages

The New Year started with a lot of talk about more rock star marriages hitting the rocks and going the way of Humpty Dumpty's fall. First my big favorite, Sebastian Bach, announced that he and his wife Maria Bierk have decided to get divorced.
Man! After 18 years! They said they tried to keep it together for the sake of their family but just could not reconcile their differences. How sad!

Just prior to that, I had learned that John Mellencamp and his wife, model Elaine Irwin decided to go their separate ways, too. They were also married 18 years! I guess even the wild life of a rockstar can't provide enough excitement to keep a marriage together. Either that or the excitement IS the PROBLEM. I'm sure that rockstars (or celebrities in general) face so much temptation out on the road that you have to be a really strong person and have a really strong devotion to your partner to be able to get past those obstacles.

On a happier note, though, Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebauld rang in the New Year with marriage vows to each other. After suffering from the heartbreak of their former spouses cheating with each other, these two found comfort with each other and a friendship that they decided to make permanent.

There are some rocking couples still together after more than 20 years and I sure hope they can stay that way. We need some famous people like these to show us that marriages can last and that couples should respect each other enough to stay married through thick and thin.

There's Jon Bon Jovi (whoot whoo!) and his lovely wife Dorothea. They were high school sweethearts - imagine that!!!

And then there's Ozzy Osbourne and his manager-wife, Sharon. They've literally been together through hell and back! I give them kudos!!! Hurray for the madman and his're really no madman when you can keep your life together like that. You're both amazing!
