“It takes a lot of effort to look like a normal/chubby woman.”
Mindy Kaling visited Jimmy Kimmel and gave one of the most honest interviews I’ve ever seen on television. Kaling addressed the many bloggers who deliver backhanded compliments about her weight, calling her “courageous” for wearing a crop top and insisting that she “doesn’t subscribe to the ideals of beauty that other people do.” Kimmel kindly empathized, noting that others are constantly commenting on his weight.

The truth is, the only thing any of us have is today. Beyond that, there are no guarantees. The idea of being married to one person for life is too much pressure for anyone. In fact, it would be interesting to see how much easier couples might commit to each other by thinking of their relationship in terms of daily renewal instead of a lifetime investment. This is probably the reason why so many people say their long-term relationships changed overnight, once they got married. The people didn’t change, but the expectation did.
The REAL truth is, relationships are private. There’s no formula for its success, and there’s certainly no formula for its failure. It’s easy to malign the institution merely because your personal marriage ended, but it’s also arrogant. To assume you have any inside awareness of an objective relationship truth, is obnoxious. I’m surprised Gwyneth’s team didn’t get their hands on this in time to block it. It’s ridiculous.
