I realize that I've expressed some pretty strong opinions on this site about the divorce. If I've offended anyone it was unintentional. As the oldest child of two divorced parents who do not co-operate and didn't very well even when they were married, I suppose I'm very sensitive and very much aware of the pain it causes everyone, and the extra stress and responsibility it means for the children. My dad isn't perfect, but my mother unfairly blames him for everything, and she's not perfect either. So you better believe that it created a pretty strong reaction in me to see Britney file for divorce in a way that seemed very cavalier and insensitive, and to see a headline on People that said "Eight weeks after the birth of her second child, the singer dumps her hard-partying husband - Britney files for divorce!" Then to see people cheering and laughing at the way Kevin was caught off-guard was really difficult for me to see. So if I seem to take it personally that the divorce isn't being handled as well as it could be, maybe I am. I'm far too aware of what some of the people involved are probably feeling, and what they will feel in the future if Kevin and Britney are unable to work well together.
However, Kevin and Britney are not my parents, and things will not necessarily work out the same way. Kevin really seems more or less okay, especially the last few times we've seen him. I'm happy to see him focusing on his career and spending so much time with his family and friends. I'm not as sure about Britney. Not because I believe all of the rumors about her, but I would have liked to have seen at least one picture of her with someone in her family by now. It's good to get out there and meet new people and make new friends, but at a time like this I think it's better to surround yourself with people who really know you and can support you, and don't have any vested interest. I've always thought of Britney as the Marilyn Monroe of our time, she's such a star and she has that same quality that makes people either hate her or want to put their arm around her and be her friend. I just don't want her to be like Marilyn in all ways. I hope as she gets older she'll be more like Madonna and be able to stay strong.
I think I will always have an interest in Kevin, Britney, Sean Preston, Jayden James, and even Shar, Kori, Kaleb, Donnie, and Cassie. I had hoped to see Kevin and Britney in an long and successful marriage, but it wasn't meant to be I guess. So I wish them all well as they sort through their new lives and I hope they "live long and prosper".
