I am an international relationship author-expert and couples mediator. My practice is the #1 online destination for on-demand, marriage-saving crash courses. I am also a regular blogger for the Huffington Post and SheKnows.com.
Recently, my husband and I were chowing down on some Friday night nachos and binge watching some Netflix, specifically the show GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.) It's about a washed-up director who agrees to make a television show about female wrestlers. At one point, he's talking to a woman who is distraught over how others perceive her. His rough-edged advice is at once both amusing and profoundly wise. He says, "Try not giving a f***. There's a lot of power in that."
I recently read that celebrity marriages fail at twice the rate of other marriages. As a couples mediator who has often worked with high-profile couples, I wasn't surprised. Here, I've listed eight common reasons why celebrity marriages flounder. Yet before you take comfort in your anonymity, know this: they're the same reasons that non-celebrity marriages fail.

If you think the so-called midlife crisis is just for men, think again. In my practice, I speak with an almost equal number of worried husbands who are wondering whether their wife is having a midlife crisis. Their biggest worry, of course, is that it will lead to an affair. In many cases, they have cause for concern. Just as men often cheat during a midlife crisis, so too do women. For the record, “midlife” for our purposes here is anywhere between 30 and 60 years old.
So, been thinking of taking a chance on something or making a change? Today's the day...today, Jan 10, 49 BCE, Julius Caesar said those words we love to repeat: alea iacta est (the die is cast). So go for it :) https://t.co/VlxzJs5a6N
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
