A lot of the time when people are young they will marry the first man or woman that they fall in love with -- sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't. Unfortunately divorce is a very common thing, as we all know -- and so is getting remarried when someone more compatible comes along. And if divorce seems common to all of the "regular" people out there, just think, it's even more common for the rich and famous.
