Everyone is analyzing to death the Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise split, when really, there isn't much to analyze. Look for all the clues, signs and reasons you want. Truthfully, their marriage wasn't much different than any of the other numerous Hollywood marriages that crumble after a few years. She was a young and impressionable up-and-comer courted by a big-time movie star who happened to be a religious wackadoo. That's the story, folks. Katie is 33, a mom, and she wised up before it was too late.
But she was not the only one. Everyone is talking about how interesting it is that all of Cruise's ex-wifes left the marriage at the same exact age: 33. And that, it seems, is a bona fide trend, people. But what does it mean, exactly?
It could be coincidence or it could mean that the 30s for a woman is a time of maturity, when you've lived and experienced and suffered enough to have your shit together. It's an age when you are more able to recognize you've made a mistake and when it's time to get out before it's too late. As it was for ...
Mimi Rogers. She and Cruise met in the early 80s and eventually married. It was Rogers who introduced and brought Cruise into the Scientology cult religion, so at least we know it was other reasons that led them to stray from each other. They divorced after three years.
Nicole Kidman. She and Cruise met on the set of Days of Thunder. They adopted several children and lasted over 10 years.
Both former ex-wives are currently remarried with children and seemingly happy, so we can only hope the same will follow eventually for Katie.
Have you ever been divorced? What age did you split up?
