The marriage of Courteney Cox and David Arquette has always seemed to be one of those rare ones in Hollywood that is full of love and laughter and in which the couple is made up of two very real and honest people. But Celebrity Baby Scoop ran an interview that Courteney has done recently in which she lets us in a little bit on what married life is really like for them. From Celebrity Baby Scoop,
“I don’t like to make plans because it makes me feel trapped, whereas he likes to know exactly what he’s doing; he’s happier with defined boundaries. But we have a good balance. He’s got the best heart, he’s so giving, he’s smart and creative and he’s gorgeous. Even though he acts kooky, David is as grounded as anyone I’ve ever met.” Courteney goes on to discuss marriage in general: “Is marriage for ever? I think you get married with the intention that it will be, but who knows? I get shocked by people getting divorced all the time, that’s why I choose to work on it. Therapy helps us. It’s so easy to grow apart; marriage takes work. I suppose you can work it out by talking to each other – I would just prefer to have a referee, it reminds us why we’re together.” Courteney outlined how her own parents divorced when she was a child. “Before my dad died, he said one of his big regrets was that he hadn’t worked on their marriage enough. I don’t know what the future’s going to hold, but divorce isn’t really an option.”
It’s sort of confusing because you can tell that she loves him very much yet, there seems to be an undertone here that says it’s just not working out. I don’t think that happy couples need to be reminded of why they’re married to each other. I think it’s there clear as day every morning when you wake up next to each other. Or at least it should be. I also don’t agree that it’s easy for people to grow apart when they’re living a life together, unless they rarely see each other which in the case of celebrities, is most likely the case. As far as divorce being an option, I don’t think it ever is until there are no others. And she talks about is so passively that it seems as though she might actually want to get divorced but doesn’t want to say the words. I don’t know, the interview got weird when she started talking about her marriage and although I think she was being honest, I think there may also be problems here that haven’t quite come to the forefront just yet.
