Knowing that all you will be known as is the wife of the husband of Mel Gibson or Mariah Carey .No one will ever take the time out to really know your story except but only as far as it realtes to celibrity .In addition when you and the celebrity walks into a room ,everyone will bomb rush the celibrity and may even trample you.And when the pictures are finally released you will be lucky if even half of your head gets seen in any of the pictures. [i]My reason for this discussion is that I was watching some red carpet function and I noticed that Mary J Blige's spouse just moved out of the way in time so that reporters and photographers could take her picture and she stood ther basking in the glory while he was in the background.Mind you I dont think sh edid it deliberately but I noticed it and wondered how he must have felt [/i]. Could you be the ignored entity in one of these celebrity unions?

No way. I'm not thin enough or pretty enough to be a stars'wife. Besides I have a hair trigger temper . One misstep and a " photographer" would land in the hospital.

I would never ever dreamed of becoming one. Obviously it's because celebrities don't have the privacy like the normal people that we enjoy. I don't want to be a wife of some celebrity because I will always stay in the background...not that I enjoy fame. It's the gossip that I would not rather want to face to.

I wud like to be wife of some simple guy not so famous but does his work and earn good, has time for me and family. I wud rather not chose any celebrity even if its tempting of all the fame n money. I prefer love more than money or anything. But yeah I have not fallen love with any celebrity but I am sure i will never.

I don't think that I could be a celebrity spouse. The main reason that I feel this way is that I don't really like to be in the lime light and as a wife of someone famous, that is where I would be all the time. Even if it wasn't me that they were wanting to photograph, it would happen inadvertantly because of who my husband is. Additionally, you don't really see a lot of celebrity unions that last for a long time and I personally believe that marriage should be for life.

I would not have a problem stepping aside and letting the paparazzi take pictures of my partner; I would be quite happy in the background, it would not hurt me at all. I am not normally a jealous or possessive person but, to be honest, if I was married to a celebrity it would be hard to take all the attention my husband would receive from other women. I wouldn’t like to give up my privacy and be scrutinised because unfortunately it’s not just the celebs that are constantly chased and photographed, their families get picked on too!

I couldn't do that, not that I would want to try. To be quite honest that would drive me up the wall I think. I wouldn't be able to stand it. I think I'd go stir crazy. Plus celeberities aren't often seen as real people and don't have privite lives. I am a very quiet shy person so that wouldn't work out for me at all.

The spouse of a celebrity has to be a very secure person in their own right. Like in the case of Dolly Parton, her husband has been her best friend and manager for years. They have a very healthy and happy marriage because he has no desire for the limelight and she has no desire to be a stay at home mom. Opposites attract. I think the biggest celebrity problem is when both partners have huge egos, like in the case of Angelina and Brad baby. Right now they are both on top, when one of them falls which will probably be Angelina since women's acting career usually fails before the male there will probably be a problem.

It's hard to tell unless you're already in that situation. If I were to marry someone famous, I guess at first I would attend functions too and be all glamorous and such, and then fade into the background while my partner basks in the limelight. But eventually, I will stay home and watch with the rest of the world instead. That way I don't feel bad that I am ignored by the paparazzi. :) It would be wonderful to be a celebrity spouse if it means it will allow me opportunities to do more good for others. :)

I don't think I would marry a celeb. I think I would date one. I wouldn't want my privacy to be invaded. American society is so nosy when it comes to celebs. They have to know everything about them. Tabloids make up lies about celebs to try and break them up and just to make more money because crap like that sells. So no. I Wouldn't marry a celeb. Unless it was justin timberlake.

Trust is more important when it comes to a relationship---coz being a celebrity or not comes second---they aren't born with two a$$es right so if every thing goes on well between those then the partner wouldnt mind really coz he is enjoying his wife's success and he makes way for other unlucky ones who hardly manage to get a glimpse of their favourite celebrity coz he would be spending most of his time with her so that shouldnt be a big problem---if i were him then i would happily make my way for those hungry photographers and crazy fans rather than trying harder to have an pooping head on the pics in page3 the next day.great day.

First off, who is Mary J. Blige? I could never be the spouse of a celebrity, not because of the background roll, but because I don't trust their faithfulness. Being in the background, if I was married to a celebrity, would suit me just fine.

I could. i don't really mind not being the centre of attention. except that my husband wouldn't enjoy being a celebrity, so it's not going to happen.

I really wouldn't be able to be the wife of a celebrity. By nature, I'm a very private person, so having all of the paparazzi following my family and me around everywhere would not be cool. My husband could go walk the red carpet; I'd rather stay home and drink some chocolate milk while watching a movie.

i don't really know. i mean, when i was a teen of course i'd fantasize about dating Justin Timberlake but hey, if that would happen i'd probably not like it since i'm a jealous girl. i think it would depend on the situation and a person. if you date/marry someone already famous then you know what you're getting into. you either deal with it, adjust or get out of it. if you're married to someone and they become famous then the situation can change. if the relationship and the person remains the same then there's a good chance that you could adjust spite who they are on the outside. but if the person becomes arrogant and changes their ways then it can be a problem. i think, of course, the problem would be no privacy and your life being watched. but as you know for celebrities its a case by case basis. some celebs are good at keeping out of the limelight and tabloids. i would strive to be that type of person.
