Carina has been typing on the internets before there was a www in front of everything. This is why she’s cranky and wants to know when you’ll get off her lawn. She resides in a hopelessly outdated home in the Mountain West with a mathematician and three children hell-bent on destruction. Her laundry is not done, but her Twitter is totally up to date. Carina does not have a Tumblr, because get serious.

Russell Brand and Katy Perry Divorcing

Russell Brand and Katy Perry are divorcing after 14 months of marriage. Usually, when I hear about a celebrity marrying another celebrity I snort and think it won’t last. For some reason, I thought these two crazy kids actually would be the ones to make it last. Or last longer than 14 months. You know how when two nutty people get together sometimes it just works? Plus, I love Rusty Rockets.

My feelings would best be expressed in this written for the web article from the LA Times called “A Celebrity Breakup to Make us Go ‘Aww.‘”

The scuttlebutt is that religious differences and family issues drove them apart. With her strong Christian family roots and his Hindu devotion, do you think they ever had a chance?

    I kind of thought they’d work, too. But I don’t know if I buy the religious angle. On the E! biography of Katy (shut up, I watched it), it seemed like her parents weren’t in the ministry anymore, and that she didn’t care much about her faith. I hope Russell doesn’t go back to alcohol and drugs now.

    (Also, I do know how to correctly use em-dashes and hyphens, but this site makes them all the same.)

    The rule-of-thumb I’ve heard is that differences of religion matter according to the religiosity of each partner–if neither’s religious, their religion-of-origin doesn’t matter. So–hmm.

    (I’ve also heard that religion usually becomes more of an issue after having kids–so, again, hmm.)
