Real Housewives of Orange County stars Shannon and David Beador are still going through with their celebrity divorce, which was announced a week ago. EOnline.com reports that the ex celebrity couple were seen reuniting on Saturday at USC for their daughter Sophie Baedor. Though the couple are splitting after 17 years of marriage, both Shannon and David remain committed to regular reunions, claiming that co-parenting amicably for the sake of their children remains their goal.

This celebrity divorce is still happening after 17 years of marriage. What are some things to try to heal your relationship before resorting to a divorce?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Long-term relationships are a lot of work, but we often forget it. That initial falling in love feeling disappears but we’re still optimistic  about our futures. Routine, monotony, stress, and hardships challenge the relationship and it’s natural when we feel down from life to let those feelings translate to our relationships. How do we know, then, when we’ve done everything we can for our marriage? Check out Cupid’s relationship advice:

1. Decide if you want to fix your marriage: You would think this would be obvious for most people: you know either way if you want to save your relationship. But it’s much easier to say you do want to make things work than it is to take the actions to do so. When you realize you want to do the hard work it takes to repair a relationship, that means you have to stop complaining and start taking action.

2. Take responsibility: Unfortunately, working on a relationship isn’t comfortable. Then again, it was awkward in the beginning, but that proved to be worth it. You’ll be embarrassed and humbled, but likely, so will your spouse. Own up to your mistakes, both past and present. Your spouse will appreciate it and you’ll find some closure on past pains. Your relationship will also take a giant leap forward as the two of you confront your demons together.

3. Respect and value: This is another that should seem obvious, but when you’re hurting it’s very easy to take out that pain on the other party. From our childhoods we all learned how easy it is to lash out at our family, and our spouses are no exception, but take a breath before you do so. Is that comment worth the damage it does to your relationship? Also keep in mind that actively paying attention and engaging your significant other shows that you value and respect them, and taking the time to listen and engage will go much further than an extravagant gift that was purchased to overcompensate for failures.

4. Give your best: When you’re hurt, you don’t want to make yourself vulnerable, but you won’t move forward unless you try. Keep giving your best, even when your spouse isn’t. If things don’t work out you will know you tried your hardest and you will have learned from the whole experience for another relationship.

Even celebrity exes are bound to cross paths eventually! What are some ways to deal with running into your ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

While your fight or flight instincts may be pushing you to run and hide, we know that’s not always an option. Cupid has some relationship advice to make these awkward run-ins…less awkward:

2. Keep it polite: Your default reaction may be to list off all the reasons why your life’s so much better without them. It’s great to show them you’ve moved on, just make sure you aren’t over-killing it. It could leave you looking more flustered and out of it.

In the latest celebrity news, Fergie has shared heart wrenching information about her recent split from husband Josh Duhamel. According to UsMagazine.com, the somber Black-Eyed Peas singer confesses, “It wasn’t my plan, I wanted to stay married forever,” in a preview for an upcoming appearance on the Wendy Williams Show. The former celebrity couple formally announced their separation in September, but parted ways earlier in the spring. Fergie and Duhamel will remain on friendly terms and co-parent their four-year-old son, Axl, together.

This celebrity news has our hearts hurting. What are some ways to know you’ve done everything you can to save a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Even celebrity couples that appear to be as strong and loving as Fergie and Josh have the potential to fizzle out. While you should almost always try and save your relationship, sometimes it’s best to call it quits. How do you know when it’s over? Cupid has some ideas:

1. You’ve talked it out: Whether you sit down together or seek help from a therapist, getting to the root of the problems are totally essential. If you two still aren’t seeing eye-to-eye, maybe it just can’t be saved.

2. You’ve gone back to basics: Sometimes it’s good to hit the reset button. Remember the early days of your relationship when you were still getting to know each other? If you channel those innocent times but aren’t seeing changes in the way you treat each other, it may be time to end things.

3. You just aren’t feeling it: Always, always, always trust your gut. If your partner doesn’t make you feel as happy, strong, or content as they used to, perhaps the relationship has run dry. You know yourself better than anyone else, after all.

Cupid wants to know: How have you tried to save your relationship?

Earlier in the week, former Hollywood celebrity couple Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced that they were separating from one another. Though the news was revealed via social media, Faris finally broke her silence after opening up on her podcast, Unqualified. She offered relationship advice to one heartbroken listener, eventually hinting at her own situation with Pratt. People.com reported that Faris found herself feeling lost in relationships, explaining that one should always know their worth and independence.

This celebrity break-up has left Hollywood shocked and sad. What are some factors to consider when it comes to independence in a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

After eight years of marriage, coming to terms with divorce must have been a hard pill to swallow for both Anna and Chris. It seems like a lot of the issues stemmed from Anna’s struggle to understand her independence in the relationship. If this situation sounds familiar to you, head below to read some of Cupid’s tips:

1. Try not to lose yourself: In serious relationships, it can become increasingly difficult not to lose sight of the person you are at heart. At times, we may find ourselves changing our likes and dislikes (among other things) simply due to our partner. While there’s nothing wrong with change, you should always remember who you are. You should know your boundaries, in addition to knowing when you’ve changed too much. At the end of the day, you should always recognize the person you are.

2. Do things on your own: Going out to eat, trips to the super market, and walks in the park are always fun to do with your sweetheart, but that doesn’t mean you should do everything with them. If you are constantly performing tasks and going places with your partner — and find yourself having difficulty doing the same things by yourself — you may be losing your independence as a human being. While it’s enjoyable to have company when doing mundane tasks, you should still be taking the time to embrace your independence by doing things on your own as well.

3. Never stop working on yourself: A common misconception is that it’s harder to grow as a person when you are in a relationship. This can be true at times, but that’s usually because you’re not putting the work in. Regardless of the relationship you find yourself in, you should never stop working on yourself. You should always take the time to do beneficial things for yourself, along with putting yourself first every now and then.
