Heard on the radio this morning that Jessica Simpson and John Mayer broke up after a trip to Australia. (Rise up boys, Simpson is free )
Then the radio commentator asked, "What is it about Australia that breaks people up? Nicole Ritchie just broke up with her lover after a trip downunder too. Better be careful if you go down there!"
I thougt about it for a second and it's a bit comical.
I went to Australia with my wife(then girlfriend) after 2 years of dating. We walked about the continent for a month and came home together. The trip was great.
Nowadays, when people ask, "How did you know she/he was the one?" we reply, "We survived traveling a month together on a long trip without a hitch. We figure, if we didn't come remotely close to killing each other on the trip, that was a great sign "
So maybe that's the underlying breakpoint? Or maybe it's those Aussie men, that my wife loves, that are behind the heartbreak?

Perhaps the long travel time for such visitors from North America or Europe, the wack out of your time cycles, and maybe being too togetether too much in a concentrated time period may all add up to stress that may break up a couple that may have underlying problems.

I think the issue is the people in question breaking up. If I was stuck on a trip with Jessica Simpson, after I achieved the point of severe fatigue from other things, I would probably want to choke her just to get her to stop saying stupid crap.
Anyone who can spend more than an hour in a room with Nicole Ritchie and not kill her deserves a medal. Whoever the guy was would have split with her annoying ass if they were stuck being around each other regardless of where they are.
Any celebrity relationship has underlying problems- namely the 2 people in the relationship. The trip just magnifies the problem, it doesn't matter where they go.
not really...just that most of them swan around like their shit doesn't stink! my mates ask me all the time why I'm still singler to which I usually reply that I would never date an Australian chick...to much maintenance and that's putting it mildly!
a true friend is someone who sees the pain in your eyes, while everyone else believes the smile on your face.

Quoting Bill142 (Reply 4): No it's not for lovers. We've got a Sheila shortage, so strapping young lads like myself out number the ladies. Which is a bit disconcerting, especially when you go into pubs and clubs etc.
You been hitting the gay bars again by mistake?
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Translation, all the good stock married themselves off to US Sailors in WWII.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
I have a hugh red patch of dry skin on my lip. By the way she was talking, I think what was in my pants was of more interest. Although she was convinced I was gay as I was too well dressed. I hardly call sneakers, jeans and a t-shirt well dressed.
