3 Important relationship lessons to grab from #Brangelina’s breakup
By Rita Chioma
Following the shocking news of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce saga, it has dawned on a lot of people that no relationship is perfect.
For 12 years , Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were arguably the Michelle and Barack Obama of Hollywood. Another super couple in the mould of Beyonce and Jay Z.
They were so big together that due to the media frenzy around them, they escaped to Namibia for the birth of their first Biological child.
The first pictures of that child sold for $7million, and when they had a set of twins years later, the first pictures also sold for $14million.
Hopefully, that paints a picture of how tremendous they both were as a couple.
That grand union which seemed to be forged with an unbreakable ancient stone, is now about to be dissolved by “irreconcilable differences.”
Meanwhile, we can learn a few things from the impending separation of the couple.
…No relationship is perfect
Cast your mind back to 2004, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were the rave of the moment. Mr and Mrs Smith dropped and was hugely successful.
The couple fell in love on set and defied the odds to stay together since then. They were fantastic actors. They both did exceptionally well whenever they decided to grace any movie with their appearance.
Since they were always faultless on screen, coupled by that perfect dovetailing in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, it somehow became ‘normal’ to assume that they were perfect together, and nothing could happen to their union.
Yes, they actually looked the part, but still, they are human, and as such, are prone to the vices and mistakes we make.
…..Nothing in life is certain
People had thought that they would be together forever. Sadly, they were all wrong. It goes to show once again, how totally unpredictable life is. No one knows tomorrow.
….Enjoy every relationship moment while it lasts
Learn from this sad end of their wedding, to enjoy every moment with that special person; every day, every kiss, every little thing they do, even the fights.
Treasure it, enjoy it while it lasts, for they might not even be there with you tomorrow.
