Why do they bother? These celebrity temporary marriages denigrate the institution... Just live together for awhile.. split... no worries, no fuss... and we don't have to read the idiotic statements "We ask that you respect our privacy in this difficult time"... oh, give me a break. These idjuts live for publicity and public flaunting of their private lives.

Why the hell do we even have marriage? For something that's supposed to be sacred, permanent and family forming, it sure ain't. It's a joke and worse, some people who really want to marry (for whatever reason) are being denied that right. Get rid of marriage.
