In celebrity break-ups, John Cena and Nikki Bella called it quits. What are some reasons to call off your engagement?

Cupid’s Advice:

Calling off an engagement is rough. Nevertheless, it is better to realize now that it’s not working out rather than later after you’re married. Here are some reasons why you would possibly call off your engagement:

1. You argue all the time and cannot come to an agreement: Relationships have to consist of good communication between partners. If you argue all the time, that is something you can work through. Now, if you argue all the time and just don’t resolve anything, then there is a problem. If this is the case, your issues will likely build up and continue to cause havoc in your relationship.

2. There is no trust: There are times in a relationship where there may be a lack of trust, and many times couples work through it. However, when at the point where you’re engaged, trust should be something that is prominently there. There is no reason why you should not trust the person you are going to marry.

3. There are things you cannot get past: If you’re marriage is going to work, you need to have moved on from past mistakes your partner has made. Sometimes we remain in relationships without forgiving our partner for a past discretion. When engaged, the slate should be wiped clean in a way. You are about to start a new chapter in your lives, and if you still have past demons knocking on your door, you may already be a step toward divorce without even being married yet.

Celebrity Break-Up: ‘Bachelor Winter Games’ Star Lesley Murphy Breaks Silence After Split from Dean Unglert

By Carly Horowitz

In latest celebrity news, The Bachelor Winter Games star Lesley Murphy and Dean Unglert have posted on their Instagram accounts in such a way that makes it seem as if they went through a celebrity break-up with each other. The former celebrity couple were spotted together at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and that’s when we knew they were dating. Yet, Murphy wrote in an Instagram caption two days ago stating, “All we need is that same energy reciprocated, and despite how open and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they’ve met themselves. Don’t be afraid to be the one that loved the most and give everything you had, because you’ve got to find people who love like you do and who are ready.” She also goes on to state that she is “out with the old, in with the TRUE.” This definitely seems like the two went through a break-up. To add to the speculation, Unglert also wrote on Instagram, “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that although everyone DESERVES love, it’s not something we’re entitled to. Love takes work. Love is compromise. Love is earned. I still have a lot of work to do on myself, a lot to prove to myself, before I’m ready for something like that.” To conclude, a source informed EOnline.com that the pair did indeed break up recently. The aspects of distance and traveling are said to have had some effect on their relationship. The two plan to continue as friends.

This Bachelor Winter Games celebrity break-up wasn’t really unexpected, but Lesley had some things to say about it. What are some benefits to getting your side of a break-up story out to your family and friends?


Cupid’s Advice:

When you and your partner break-up, speculation can occur. If you feel comfortable, the best thing to do is get your side of the break-up out to your family and friends. Here is why:

1. They will know the truth: You definitely want your closest friends and family to know the truth about why your break-up occurred. Fill them in on how you feel about it so that they are not left in the dust to wonder how you are doing. Your ex-partner may have a different side of the story, and that is okay. Both of you guys can expose your thoughts and feelings on the matter in order to make for a healthy, transparent split.

2. They will support you: During this time of a break-up, it is usually beneficial to have the support of your friends and family. How are they going to know to support you if you don’t let them in on what is going on? Be open with them. This will help to both get your feelings out and inform the ones closest to you.

3. They will try to understand: Even though no one can ever feel the exact same way you do, people can at least try to understand. By doing something like posting an Instagram post detailing your feelings, it helps for your friends and family to see where you are coming from. The more they understand, the easier it is for them to continue to love and support you.

Celebrity Break-Up: Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan Silence Rumors About Their Split

By Carly Horowitz

In latest celebrity news, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have announced their separation. They released this news on Instagram stating, “Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now.” They added, “There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision—just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly.” Yet, rumors are still arising as to why the pair is splitting. Some say this celebrity break-up was caused by flirting and drinking. A source tells EOnline.com that these rumors are not true. “We understand that everyone is super interested in speculating on their private life and that there are people who think they have an idea of the inner life of this relationship, but it’s simply not the case,” the source says. “The media is fabricating stories and none of these accusations are remotely true. Channing and Jenna released an honest and loving statement which is the only truth.” The former celebrity couple plans to continue their lives as best friends caring for their 4-year-old daughter, Everly.

There simply isn’t truth to many of the rumors about Channing and Jenna’s recent celebrity break-up. What are some ways to communicate your break-up to family and friends?


Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes the hardest thing about breaking-up is breaking the news to your friends and family that have rooted you on all this time. Fortunately, it is your closest friends and family, so they will understand that this is the right decision for you and respect that. Here are some ways to break the break-up news:

1. Social media: If the majority of your friends and family use social media on a daily basis, this may be the quickest, most efficient way to get the word out. You can do something similarly to what Channing and Jenna did and thoroughly explain that there are no hard feelings in order to decrease the potential spreading of rumors.

2. Talk in person and reassure that this is for the best: Maybe hold a small gathering with your friends and family and casually slip in the news over dinner. Be ready for some questions and criticism. Explain everything to them honestly and let them know that this is for the best and everything is going to be just fine.

3. Take time to tell everyone personally: If you are feeling up to it, it may be beneficial for you to take the time to call each individual person that you need to break the news to. By doing this, you will get genuine feedback and support from each person. Call your gal pals first because they will most likely be the most ready to accept the information. Then call grandma, she will be sure to give you some words of wisdom and tell you that she loves you. Try not to stress so much about breaking the news, everyone will be happy as long as they know you are on the right path to being happy as well.

Celebrity Break-Up: Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan Tatum Are Still Living Together Post-Split

By Carly Horowitz

In latest celebrity news, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have announced their peaceful separation. Although, according to UsMagazine.com, the two haven’t been lovey dovey in a while. “They haven’t been ‘together’ for a while. They are best friends and still support each other and go to each other’s events and live in the same house,” a source said. Apparently the former celebrity couple seems to be better as friends than as romantic partners at the moment, and there are no hard feelings about that.

This celebrity break-up took us all by surprise, and the duo are still co-habitating. What are some ways to decide who will move out after a split?


Cupid’s Advice:

When you have been together with someone for a long time, moving out can be a very upsetting experience. You have come to a point where you are so comfortable with each other. How can you decide who is going to move out? Cupid has some words of wisdom on how to handle this situation:

1. Decide legally: You can go the simple route and whoever’s name is on the lease gets to stay. Although sometimes, it is more complicated than that if both of you two have your names on it.

2. Get a counselor: You don’t need a counselor just when you are working to try to make your relationship better, you can still use one once you two are officially apart. It doesn’t hurt to have a professional help you decide where to go from here.

3. Don’t let your emotions overtake: Have a rational discussion with your ex-partner to figure out what would make the most sense to do. Try not to become too attached to the small things. Have an open mind and realize that you now have this opportunity to either move out and start a beautiful new life in a wonderful new place, or you get to redecorate the home you are in now! Either option is an opportunity for growth.

By Carly Horowitz

In latest celebrity news, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum announced their separation on Instagram this past Monday. A part of the statement read, “We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together.

This celebrity break-up is so disappointing to us! What are some ways to work on your marriage prior to calling it quits?

Cupid’s Advice:

Marriage is a lifelong commitment that must be worked on day in and day out. Sometimes it may get rocky along the way, but try not to give up! Here are some ways to work on your marriage before breaking it off:

1. Remember why you got married: You are going to need some motivation if you want to avidly work on your marriage during a rough time. Try your best to remember why you got married in the first place. Ponder the amazing assets of your partner and visualize the amazing wedding that you shared together. Maybe even try to do things that you used to do when you first started dating or when you first got married in order to ignite that spark again and become motivated for this improvement process.

2. Take a walk together each day: It sounds so simple yet it is so beneficial. Taking time out of each of your days to take a nice stroll around your neighborhood will give you and your partner an opportunity to discuss your feelings and further hone the bond that you have. You can talk about how your day went and then get into some serious points as to why you are needing to work on your marriage. Being in the outdoors will also help you and your partner to be more open and happy while conversing.

3. Practice forgiveness: Try to open your mind and see things the way that your partner is seeing things. Now is not time for the blame game. That will only prove to be detrimental. Take responsibility for your own actions and move on from there. Keep in your mind that you are trying to improve your relationship instead of looking for reasons to end it.

Celebrity Break-Up: Justin Theroux Is Spotted with Aubrey Plaza Post-Split from Jennifer Aniston

By Jessica Gomez

In celebrity news, Justin Theroux was spotted with his co-star from back in the day, Aubrey Plaza. According to People.com, they were photographed in New York City and went to Theroux’s apartment. “They met to discuss a potential film project,” a source said. As for his relationship with Jennifer Aniston, the two continue to be friends after their celebrity break-up.

Justin and Jennifer’s celebrity break-up is fairly new, but it looks like at least one of them is moving on. What are some things to consider before moving on after a break-up or divorce?

Cupid’s Advice:

Moving on after a break-up can be extremely difficult sometimes. What can be even worse is deciding whether to move on or not. Here are somethings you should consider before moving on:

1. Why did you both break up?: Was the break-up over something not worth it or was it over something that was? Sometimes we break-up out of anger or over something that we think we cannot move past, but do. Evaluate things, make sure that the break-up happened for the right reasons and you’re okay with that decision.

2. Is there even a future with this person?: Is this person worth getting back with in the future? If you no longer see a future with an ex flame, it’s time to move on. If you know this valuable piece of information, then you’re on track to move on.

3. Has the other person moved on?: If so, then it is probably safe to say that you should too. It may hurt to see them with someone else, but things happen for a reason. Don’t let seeing them with someone else throw you into a jealous fit that makes you want them more. No bueno!

5 Things We Can Learn from Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez’s Rocky Relationship

By Ashton Dixey

There are a lot of beautiful celebrity couples out there, but there is one in particular that we’ve all come to admire and treasure: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Society has perhaps learned more from observing their dating story than we could from reading a relationship book! Although they’re currently on a break right now, that doesn’t mean that we can’t learn from this super cute couple.

Read on to learn more about the five things that celebrity couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez taught us about relationships:


1. First loves are the hardest to get over: Justin Bieber was only 16 and Selena Gomez was 18 when they both started dating each other. Fresh faced and in love, these two went everywhere together and were spotted packing on the PDA in full swing. Fast forward eight years later (past all of the drama) and these two are still in touch trying to make things work. It seemed like Bieber never fully recovered once Gomez and him broke-up. Gomez even wrote a song about it called “The Heart Wants What It Wants.” Be careful who you fall in love with for the first time because that first break-up is the toughest to recover from.

2. Learn to be okay alone: It seemed as if these two kind-of lost their balance when they had their celebrity break-up. One ended up in rehab and the other was caught peeing in random wash buckets in California. Be sure you are okay with who you are as a person inside so you can move on without racking up 20 tattoos on your neck to try and burn away the pain. One month shortly after the break-up, Justin ended up driving drunk without a license, running from the cops, and even egging his neighbor’s house. When you go through a break-up, don’t lose touch with yourself. Now is the perfect time to rediscover the greatness within you. Stay in touch with friends and family that truly support you so you can talk through your emotions instead of acting impulsively.

3. Keep a cool head after a break-up: Sometimes it feels really good to go on social media and unfollow your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend. Or, it might be fun to go out with a random person for the night and post pictures of yourself and them kissing. Although this may relieve the pain for a bit, it is not the best idea. Bieber put fuel on the Jelena rumor fires when he unfollowed Gomez and started posting steamy pictures of himself and other girls on Instagram. There was somewhat of an Instagram war occurring between the two. Try your best to keep a cool head after you break-up and don’t do anything you’ll regret. If you do end up back together at some point, you don’t want to do anything that might spoil the relationship for the future. Collect yourself, you got this!

4. Rebounds don’t work: If you’re trying to get over an ex, it can be tempting to find someone that’s available and willing to jump into a relationship with you. But when your heart is still reeling from wanting to be with your ex-lover, this can be a very bad decision. Instead of facing the pain, you’re pouring it into a new relationship and settling to boot. Gomez ended up dating The Weeknd for about eight months before she ended up back in Bieber’s arms after a sweet bicycle trip that turned out to be an awesome date idea. As much as you try to forget that person that you’re still in love with, it won’t be easy, and it certainly won’t be fair for the person who’s serving as your rebound.

5. If at first you don’t succeed, try try again: Throughout Bieber and Gomez’s rocky relationship, it seems that Bieber had tried to win Gomez back many times. From serenading her at a hotel in Beverly Hills, to posting photos complimenting Gomez on his Instagram, he tried and tried again to win her back. After several years of trying, it worked! They got officially back together and even made it Instagram official this month. If there’s anything to learn here it’s that true love never dies and that if there’s someone you know you’re supposed to be with, it makes sense to fight for their love. Bieber did it for Gomez and even though they are on a break right now, true love is always worth fighting for.
