Jennifer Garner is 'good' if she never remarries, plus more news
Jennifer Garner reflects on the possibility of remarrying and more. As vaccinations increase and states begin to open up more than one year into the coronavirus pandemic, Jennifer Garner sees that she's doing just fine in her career — her new film 'Yes Day' hit Netflix earlier this month — and her personal life. The mother of three reportedly split from tech exec John Miller last summer and now maintains a friendship and strong co-parenting relationship with her ex-husband, Ben Affleck. So is she craving another trip down the aisle? Maybe not. 'I don't know. I'm so far from it. And I don't know that marriage would need to be a part,' Jen, 48, tells People in the magazine's April 5 edition (via the Daily Mail). 'I mean, I definitely don't think that I'll be single forever. But this is not the time,' she says. 'I don't need to complicate it; I'm good.' In fact, she's more than good. 'I've learned that I'm pretty sturdy,' she says, looking back on the past year. 'I'm OK when I'm in the house by myself. I'm OK when it's just the kids and me. I'm OK when they fall apart,' she explains. 'I mean, I have my moments,' she adds. 'But pretty much, I'm really OK.'Read Full StoryFriendshipCelebritiesJENMarriageNetflixThe Daily MailPersonal LifeTechCoronavirusJennifer GarnerBen AffleckNaya Rivera
Disney is known for its purity culture: Will Demi Lovato's rape allegation in her new documentary change that?
“I lost my virginity in a rape,' Lovato says in her new YouTube documentary, Dancing with the Devil, revealing that a fellow actor sexual assaulted her when she was 15 and starring on a Disney Channel show, most likely Camp Rock. Lovato said she told an adult, but nothing happened, and the two had to keep working together. “My #MeToo story,” Lovato says in the documentary, “is me telling somebody that somebody did this to me, and they never got in trouble for it. They never got taken out of the movie they were in.” As Jo Livingstone notes, Lovato's documentary may put a dent in Disney's purity culture. Livingstone adds: 'The trauma of her assault was compounded by confusion, Lovato says, stemming from Disney’s insistence that its child actors maintain an image of sexual purity. She was a 'little child star role model who has a promise ring,' she says, one of 'that Disney crowd who publicly said they were waiting until marriage.' The image she was expected to maintain publicly was so at odds with her private experience that she couldn’t identify the encounter as rape until much later. We have known at least since Shirley Temple’s heyday that working in entertainment as a child can be psychologically damaging. Disney appears to have fostered a particularly mind-warping kind of gendered culture, coupling the mandatory appearance of sexual purity with an unsafe working environment. Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera were both asked whether they were virgins at press conferences, while other former Disney child stars, including Bella Thorne and Jordan Pruitt, have gone public with stories of being sexually abused during their time at the company. Was Lovato’s case a one-off, or part of a systemic problem? Sexual abuse will always be an issue for a company that courts children, either as performers or members of an audience. It seems odd that Disney—a company that trades in paid images of children and has devoted a peculiar amount of energy to branding its stars as virginal—has never taken any kind of formal responsibility for apparently failing to safeguard people like Lovato from sexual abuse. Lovato is now swinging hard at Disney in the court of public opinion. She could probably only have done it now: Dancing With the Devil is a portrait of a talented addict struggling with the kind of trauma-driven behaviors that the media has only very recently adapted to sympathizing with instead of vilifying. Her revelations come at the peak of a culture change in the way we talk about female celebrities previously shamed by the media.'Read Full StorySexual AbuseFemale CelebritiesMoviesDocumentaryRape CultureSexual CultureChild RapeDisney ChannelYouTubeSexual PurityGendered CultureStarMarriageAssaultVirginsDemi LovatoShirley TempleBritney SpearsChristina AguileraBella ThorneJordan Pruitt

My Girlfriend and Her Husband: What I’ve Learned From Their Happy Marriage
An objective perspective: watching love from the outsideI am in love with a married woman, who’s in love with another man — but she’s also in love with me, too. That man is her husband and he and I are very good friends. Such is the dynamic of my polyamorous relationship, and I’ve got to be honest, we’re all quite happy with this situation. There is no competition, no strife, no jealousy, no hard times, no anger or aggression, and it’s rather surprising, even to me, from the inside, that two men can get along so well and share the same woman. When I look around at others and the problems they have in relationships, issues with which they can seemingly never compromise, I wonder if it’s us or it's them that’s different. How is it that so many people are bothered by something that we seemingly absorb with impunity? The fact that we’ve set out on this course of polyamory, to begin with, is a clue that there’s something deeper — something wonderful happening here that’s quite unique, but is there more to it than that? I think there is.I think several factors lined up to give us what we have, and a lot of that is because of the groundwork that was laid long before I came into the picture — what they had built prior to my arrival. Most of all, being in the position I find myself in, I am privy to an unusually intimate glance at the things that have made their marriage work in a day and age when all so many quests of love and marriage fail miserably. Perhaps my perspective and outlook could shed light on one of the most amazing things I’ve ever been privileged enough to witness, a happy marriage and the inner workings of one. Here are some of the things I’ve learned from witnessing a happy marriage from such an up-close and personal perspective.It’s Okay Not to FightThere, I said it…and it’s true. Some people in today’s strange world we happen to inhabit have somehow drawn the conclusion that fighting is useful, either serving a utilitarian end or natural, something that just comes along with the territory of dating and marriage. It’s not — or at least it doesn’t have to be. But does that mean that they don’t care about one another? Absolutely not. This simply means that they show affection in other ways, choosing more healthy outlets rather than harmful outbursts.They show they care through things both small and large, from something as simple as thinking ahead and changing the laundry while the other is out at lunch with a friend, to taking mental notes of an issue the other is going through and finding the perfect solution, delivering it in the form of a gift to heal that person. Most couples fight, this is just a fact, but I’d like to state it emphatically, here, that you don’t have to. It’s much easier to actually enjoy the other person in your life when you’re not at one another’s throats all the time. For the record, he and I don’t fight, she and I don’t fight. That’s just the way it is.You Get What You GiveThe incalculable differences in character are such that it’s impossible to cast a mold that could encapsulate every single human being, and as such, there are plenty of people who are incapable of selflessness out there, so I don’t mean to place the blame on anyone in particular, but what I’ve witnessed with them is that you get what you give, and more importantly, you get what you give naturally.What do I mean by this? I mean that every relationship should strive to be a symbiosis, an interaction that’s mutually beneficial for all parties involved, and part of the process of giving is immediately reaping the rewards of contributing to the larger whole. He recently purchased a gift for her and presented it to her, and immediately, he was amazed and truly happy when he saw her eyes light up and a sweet smile crack on her face. This is just one example of countless things they’ve done for one another that ended up being their own reward in themselves.The rewards of giving in relationships are perfectly natural, they happen organically, rather than artificially, and I mean artificially as in a consciously calculated return of a favor by another person — that’s not a reward, that’s a transaction. The way that these two human beings foster love in their lives is by actually being that love, rather than waiting for it to happen to them from the outside. They understand that nothing needs to be obtained in order for them to experience emotions like happiness or love, they just experience them.Conceptual things in our lives are things that we “exist” as processes rather than traits we acquire — you don’t acquire happiness like you buy something, you actually “live” your happiness as it becomes augmented into you, built into the very fabric of your existence. And that’s how it is with their love, they exist their love as a process rather than something obtained.Independence and BalanceThis is built upon a fabric of independence, of course, and each party involved maintains their own happiness, as well as maintaining the happiness of the unit. This balance is extremely important in today’s world, as I often see others trying to do one or the other, never both. They’ve learned when to compromise and when to stand firm and set out their limits, and they ask themselves constantly if what they’re doing is fair, taking the whole of their prior experiences in as a whole, taking the other’s perspective in, and asking themselves if a certain situation is important enough to them to refuse to bend or break.They’re extremely respectful of one another’s limits and thoughts as independent, free individuals, and I think it’s the fact that they refuse to allow themselves to be completely swallowed by the relationship itself in the first place that they’re capable of doing this. When we maintain our own independent lives, we’re in a much better place to reasonably discuss things and compromise when it’s right to do so, but also to set forth the limits we need to when we need to.In all, it’s this fundamental nature and balance which has led to them creating the perfect conditions within which the three of us could do this together as a solitary unit, and I’m incredibly grateful for the experience for what it is. It’s truly amazing to watch two people who’ve been married for a very long time together, in love, happy, and living the best lives they can live, both independently, and together.Photo: PixabayMarriageRelationship AdviceMarried PeopleHappy PeopleTrue LoveHappy TimesHusbandAffectionManFoster LoveHappinessRelationshipsEmotionsHard TimesCountless Things
